After trying to open it and failing View > Application Log reports:

[Error ] <MLT> [producer_xml] parse fatal: PCDATA invalid Char value 11 row: 2216 col: 27
[Info ] <MainWindow::showStatusMessage> "Failed to open C:/Users/ddennedy/Downloads/NEWTRY.mlt"

Open the .mlt in a text editor and I see on line 2215 and 2216:

<property name="argument">Does treating people equally have a positive impact on employee’s motivation?_</property>

The last character of your text filter appears as “VT” in inverse color in Notepad++. I think that is a vertical tab probably from some keyboard strokes. It is invalid in XML, and this is supposed to be encoded or filtered somehow to prevent that, but I need to figure out why it did not. I just deleted that character, saved it, and now it opens. See attached.
