Bug report #18018
a virtual layer make the project empty
|Affected QGIS version:||2.18.16||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||windows 7 64||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||not reproducable|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Yes||Copied to github as #:||25914|
It is not the first time I encounter this issue.(It is been around a lot by the way.)
My qgis project has some postgis and shapefile layers plus a virtual_layer.
Open the project : it is empty, nothing in the list or in the canevas
Edit the .qgs, remove the <maplayer>...</maplayer> concerning the virtual_layer.
open again the .qgs and the project is ok.
Sometimes I can work with many virtual layers during days or weeks and suddenly, I don't know the reason why, the project may become empty.
I have tested this with different computers, same behaviour. This has been going on since virtual layers were added (to my knowledge).
Copy of project attached.

Could you provide a sample project file with data that allows to reproduce the issue. It tried to reproduce with no success here. (This is the hardest part in fixing such issues, making the condition reproducible for itself, and then for others).
Did you try QGIS 3.x to test future 3.4 LTR ?
