Vivado - Open Project results in "ERROR: [common 17-9] error reading message record"

Description

The following error occurs at the end or at the beginning of a Synthesis/Implementation run, or when opening a Vivado project:

ERROR: [Common 17-9] error reading message record

Solution

This issue is associated with a corrupt protocol buffer file (vivado.pb) within a synthesis or implementation run directory. 

Deleting the .pb file (e.g., synth_1/vivado.pb) will resolve the issue.

Additionally, recreating the project from scratch or deleting the run in question has also been shown to resolve the issue.

Note: The protocol buffer file is where project and runs messages are stored to allow Vivado to display messages in the message tab and project summary without re-running a process.
