Which version of yEd are you using?

With version 3.18.2, I had no problems importing VRT Clients and Peripherals.graphml and VRT Energy Management.graphml.

Maybe the files got corrupted on download from Github? You can check whether or not the files are ok using a text editor. You should see something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<graphml xmlns="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns" xmlns:java="http://www.yworks.com/xml/yfiles-common/1.0/java" xmlns:sys="http://www.yworks.com/xml/yfiles-common/markup/primitives/2.0" xmlns:x="http://www.yworks.com/xml/yfiles-common/markup/2.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:y="http://www.yworks.com/xml/graphml" xmlns:yed="http://www.yworks.com/xml/yed/3" xsi:schemaLocation="http://graphml.graphdrawing.org/xmlns http://www.yworks.com/xml/schema/graphml/1.1/ygraphml.xsd">

I use yEDd version 3.18.2 on windows 10. As I'm not admin of my computer it is installed on my profile  uner C:\Users\<login>\AppData\Roaming\yWorks\yEd

I just verified the files.. You were right! All my files are corrupted, I just downloaded one of them again and it works juste fine.

Many thanks for your quick answer, and sorry for this mistake which I should have checked by myself!
