The scene file suddenly crashes on startup (Maya 2022)

So I've been working on a project all morning, and it was fine. But when I closed it to do something, and reopened it later around noon, the file started getting fatal error crashes on startup. It won't ever open, and I shouldn't have any conflicting nodes or settings that could cause the crash, so I'm not sure what the problem is. The Maya software nor my preferences aren't the problems either, because I can open any other scene without any problem.


Just in case, I've reinstalled and reset both the software and my preferences, and the problem persists. Is there a known solution to this sort of thing?

One thing you can try is to open a new project and import the problem project into it. I have had this help with corrupted projects.
