    hello

    i just installed unity and when i launch it i get this error popup :
    Fatal error!
    type == kMetaAssetType pathName.find("library/metadata") != 0

    please note that i never launched it before, it crashes since the very 1st launch, so i never got a chance to open and try the default project....

    thanks for your help
    Vince

    well to be more precise, i installed unity 3.5 then i saw a demo of unity 4.0 so i uninstalled 3.5 then installed 4.0 then it asked me a key i didn't have so i removed 4.0 ans installed again 3.5....
    then i cannot open it

    well i fixed it
    i searched in regedit and found references as "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Unity Projects\4-0_AngryBots" for the latest project so i modified it to "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Unity Projects\3-5_AngryBots" and that's ok now...

    I found a small workaround not sure how effective it is as of yet, i'm still importing but deleting the contents of meta-data seem to un-corrupt the project.

    For those who are confused about how to fix the regedit values : open up regedit by typing it into start (not sure of this works in windows 8 )
    the press control-F and paste the following C:\Users\Public\Documents\Unity Projects\4-0_AngryBots
    then find the files with that extension and right click on them and click modify
    then replace the numbers 4-0 with 3-5
    do this for all three then open up unity and enjoy :p
