Failed to create Burp project: NullPointerException (v1.7.21)

Ganius Tanuel Apr 20, 2017 11:35PM UTC

C:\>java -jar burpsuite_pro_v1.7.21.jar --project-file="C:\TEMP\testasdf"
Failed to create Burp project: NullPointerException

Running fine with burpsuite_pro_v1.7.19.jar

Hi, I'm having this exact same issue.

Thanks for this report. Please can you email us your debug ID, at User options / Misc / Performance feedback.

If you have feedback disabled, please can you turn it on, reproduce the problem with this project file, and then shut down Burp gracefully? Thanks.

I'm not sure you understood the bug. You can specify anything in the project file and it crashes, for instance:

java -jar burpsuite_pro_v1.7.21.jar --project-file=/tmp/something_not_existent

Meanwhile, I have done the steps above and mailed your my debug ID.

Ok, so this is just an invalid file, rather than a problem opening a real project file. We’ll look into this, thanks.
