Re: Deleted Sample Tank 3 Could not open Sonar Projects
You didn't say if you did a full rescan/reset. Otherwise I believe sonar continues to look for it. It's also possible ST3 left something (registry) behind. In future you could try to start in safe mode (hold shift) to avoid loading the problem plugin and get up and running. In any case, reinstall is the right solution. Glad you got it working.
