Some servers, while exporting JSON, add one additional byte to the file (so called BOM, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte_order_mark). It generates errors while importing, all the JSON file should be without this additional byte. Open JSON file with Notepad, and then save it with “UTF-8” coding. Then the file should be good for importing.
