I saved one of the SQL data Generator 3 project with few column data generator usiing SQL queries. Now when I tries to reopen the project it hangs my sql data generator tool and I have to kill the task again and again.
I am unable to generate any data.

Please help, if somebody faced the same issue before.

    This happens to be when the database I am running the queries against isn't available. In our case the server that we query against is only available via VPN when we travel. If we don't sign into the VPN first the project will just hang at "reading permissions" while loading the project.

    I would have expected some sort of timeout when opening a project if a server cannot be reached, but it just seems to hang forever. As mentioned you have to go into task manager to kill the process, hitting "cancel" doesn't do anything.
