    A bit late but are you by any chance upgrading to a newer version of Revit?

    Try clicking on OPEN and check the AUDIT option and select your file, it might be enough to fix it.

    If you have some circular references in your project and try to upgrade the file with a higher Revit version it will encounter this error.
    Easy solution is don't upgrade.

    If you, however, are not upgrading and getting this error you my friend are stuffed (in my experience).
