The script is too large, just as it says in the error message. Try copying the script into a text file (as a backup) and then try breaking down the script into smaller modules by using functions.

Long time ago when I had this problem (in PB 3.x) I had found out a limit on the number of lines the editor could handle. Just by deleting a few characters (even in the comment lines) I was able to get the error go away.

What ever you may have done may have reduced the number of characters in the script. One easy way to test that is add a few comment lines at the top and see if the problem reappears. You can then mess around till you find the exact threshold, if interested.

But before you do that: backup, backup backup !

Have fun.
