Project Navigator - The file name 'XXX.ise' is not valid and cannot be used


If I attemptto open a project using "File --> Open project" in Project Navigator, a dialog window pops upwith the followingmessage:

"The file name 'XXX.ise' is not valid and cannot be used."


This error occurs when the project name starts with numbers or a symbol.

To work around this issue, rename the project file before opening.
