    This issue is NOT fixed, I'm using 2019.4.31f1. BUT for anyone who needs an absolute workaround (and this is a hack) essentially go into PrimitiveValue.cs and change the first line of FromString (a function located around line# 370) and change the line ```if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(value)``` to ```if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(value) || value.Contains("NaN"))```. This will at least allow you to edit inputs for the time being, it'll still throw errors and I have no idea if it actually fixes anything, but this at least allows me to SEE and EDIT the input actions.

    The problem is that this'll reset EVERY time you reopen unity, so be prepared to do this many times over the course of development.

    I am still having this issue. If anyone has come across a solution can you please help me and direct a struggling developer. I have not been able to find a solution and don know why this is considered resolved if there are others still having this issue in 2021

    [SOLVED] uninstall vjoy(do not just delete the files, uninstall properly), and restart the computer.

    Same, I can't even edit my input actions now.

    This problem is caused by the vjoy...virtual joystick installed on the computer. Uninstalling vjoy will no longer report an error. Why has this problem persisted for so long and has not been fixed yet?

    Mugik you aren't the only one to make a fix, I made a PR back in November 2019 (https://github.com/Unity-Technologies/InputSystem/pull/949) and it still hasn't been included! It'd be nice to know what is happening here. I understand that Github isn't being used anymore but there are a lot of fixes waiting to be included from there.
