Stuck on flows; error loading flow prevents edit or delete

I'm really stuck here...

Tried creating the workflow for Trailhead Module 2 "Create a flow to streamline entry of new accounts, contacts and opportunities".  Saved and made active, tried to test and got an unhelpful error message.  Now I cannot reopen the message to edit, and since its active I can't delete to start over either.  Error message on open is:

Thanks in advance for any help...

Hi Paul,

Did you try to deactivate in the list of flows screen?.
Also please try to clone the flow and edit the new version to fix the error.

And please ensure you handle the exception in flow using fault steps.
So that the flow will not have any unexpected behaviour such as this.

Let me know if this helps.

As a common practice, if your question is answered, please choose 1 best answer.
Additionally you can give every answer a like if that answer is helpful to you.

Hi Anto,

Thanks for your response, but there doesn't seem to be a way to deactivate from the list view, the checkbox is read only.  The Trailhead scoring system requires a particular name for the flow, so I won't be able to get past it unless I either fix the problem or delete the flow so I can reuse the name and I can't do either of those unless I can open the flow.

I don't believe customer support will open a case for the developers version, but I'll try...

Solved: Switched to the Lightning Experience which has a deactivate link that is in front of the open command...
