2014 Iso generation failure

Started a new job in 2014 have copied and migrated our specs \ catalogoues  etc to 2014, have run though modeling etc and then decided to add a new valve type and do a test run of the iso  which failed, so after testing descovered it was items like valves, tees, elbows which where causing my issue (can run an iso of a straight pipe okay and flanges)

Thought I would test the Sample project so ran line 1038 line off and got the following (same as what i am getting from my project)


Iso Creation start time : 24/06/2013 9:13:22 a.m.
Iso Creation finish time: 24/06/2013 9:13:32 a.m.

1 Isometric(s) were not able to be created:

WARNING - No break points have been specified.

WARNING - Invalid filter expression: 'Existing = 'false' AND SpoolNumber <> '''.

Thought I would post this before trying to do a reinstall of the software.

Need an answer as have a dead line coming up which will reuire iso's run off.

Are you using a profile other than the standard <<unnamed profile>>?


If so, try setting the profile back the the <<unnamed profile>> and retest.


After resetting the profile you may need to reload the PnP.cuix file using the MENU command.

Unable to do that as I've done a reinstall which has fixed the problem. but it would be worth while remebering this if it happens again, after i've reset up my profile.


Thanks for the reply.

I was having the same problem, and found the solution listed here. reverting back to the <<unnamed Profile>> fix the problem (after many hours trying). Very strange that isometric production does not work for different profiles. Does this mean that the profile will always need to be <<unnamed Profile>> ? I find this very strange.
