This error is usually attributed to a corruption in the 'history-columns.xml' file on the end-user's computer.

To resolve the issue,

  2. On non-Windows 7 machines navigate to

    'C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Borland\StarTeam'
  3. On Windows 7 machines navigate to

  4. Locate a file named 'history-columns.xml'
  5. Delete this file or rename it

The 'history-columns.xml' file will be rebuilt when the user logs back into StarTeam.
