Hardware Dev Tutorial Files

Honored Contributor II

Hello all, 


I have just started trying to get the Hardware Development Tutorial up and running but the project files in the companion zip file will not open. I get the following error: 


"The project or revision name contains one or more of the following illegal characters and 

cannot be opened: ^&*|<>;'"

any ideas folks? 


many thanks
