Xgen missing guides

Hey there,

 

So I've been facing this issue when re-opening my scene, the guides from all my descriptions are missing from the viewport, but are still in the outliner (not hidden).

 

"// Error: line 1: XGen: Candidate guides have not been associated! New_Hair,Eyelashes_v1 // "

 

Is the error I'm getting. So far I've worked around the issue by caching my guides as alembic (to get them back if they disappear with curves to guides tool in utility tab) and incrementing as often as possible. The thing is, I forgot to do it last time and I've lost quite a bit of guiding work.

 

I read on other topics that it could possibly be a naming clash with the geo associated with the description, and that editing the .xgen file with the proper mesh name would fix it but for me, it seems it is the correct name.

I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.
