Projects automatically removed from Project Manager

Hi All,

 

It seems from time to time a project that I have in my Project Manager in AutoCAD Electrical 2010 will be removed from the project manager.  I have various projects in my manager so I have easy access to some of our standard drawing packages.  It seems to only happen to projects I have not accessed for a while.  Has anyone else noticed this happening and a way to stop it?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi priva2,

 

Appreciate your report, I investigate it in my Autocad Electrical 2010 and also recall from my experience I don't meet this issue.

Can you reopen the removed projects via C:\Users\{username}\Documents\Acade 2010\AeData\Proj forlder ? This is Win7 OS path.

 

Another tip is all the projects information you created is written in LastProj.fil file, it is located at C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD Electrical 2010\R16.2\enu\Support\User folder. Can you check if those removed projects' information are existed in that file ?

 

Not sure if you have installed Autocad Electrical 2010 Update1, suggest to install it from here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=13777929&linkID=9240738 to see if it can resolve your problem.

Hello,

 

I can reopen the projects but we store them on a networked drive not the C drive.  Also the project information remains in my enu\support\user folder.  I'm thinking there is some set timer AutoCAD Electrical uses to remove projects from that list.  It's been happeneing for years but I finally decided to ask on the forums.

Hi priva2,

 

Thanks for your reply and hints, so we can use reopen as workaround. As for set timer in Autocad Electrical I don't think it is reasonable. I will invite development team to take a look at if there is a set timer from code level.

In order to narrow down and evaluate this problem, just confirm with you that is it a machine specific issue that only reproduce on your PC ? Do you have any chance to also see this problem in other machines ? If you don't mind, can you try to Repair or Reinstall your Autocad Electrical via Control Panel (launch Control Panel > select Autocad Electrical > click Uninstall > click Repair or Reinstall ) to see if it can fix the issue.

I talked to my associates and one has not seen this but he never leaves projects in the manager if he is not working on them.  The other 2 have it happen too.  One has XP and one has Windows 7.  The people running windows 7 are also running 2012.  I might just make a list of these base projects and store them in a specific location.

As for repairing I have done that 2 or 3 times on this PC in the past 2 years and I've had this issue between each repair.  I have also done a fresh installation when my hard drive died last year.  Thankfully we have imaging software at work now.
