When you try to load an HFM metadata file you receive an error saying that the file is not valid. When you scan the file, the log says:

PASS I - Analyzing Section Headers
Line: 1, Error: A (non-comment) line was found before any section headers

The HFM metadata file (.APP) was exported from DRM in UTF-8 format.
