I have 8 Publisher files that have apparently gotten corrupt after updating from Inventor. We performed the update and the update was successful. We made some minor changes and saved these files. When we tried to open them the following day, we get an error that says "Failed to Open File - Unknown Error. Please help!
Before and After datasets have been posted to Autodesk ftp site for evaluation.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks to Jon and the Publisher team for fixing this problem for us. All our Publisher files are working great again!
We are working directly with individual customers until we can get a public fix released, probably in about four weeks. If you need this fix right away, please contact me directly at email@example.com.
Software Developer, Inventor Publisher
We released a fix in our service pack 1 but later found that there are other workflow that exhibit this issue. We are actively testing a fix at this time. I would like to get hold of the ipb file that is causing this issue for you. Also if you know of the workflow that caused this issue that would be good to know too. If you need a ftp location to send the files please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for sending the dataset Victor. I have repaired the file and send it back to you. As I mentioned earlier we are testing a fix for this issue.
I am still having problems with this issue on a new file. Has there been a fix?
The error occurs after making a small change to the Inventor Assembly files the .ipb is using. The Publisher file was saved before the changes were done in Inventor. The Publisher file now fails to load. A weeks worth of work is now down the drain.
I would have attached the files but they are too big to attach.
Can you please tell me which version of Publisher you are using? Also do you have all the service packs installed?
I can send you a dropbox account to share the file. Will that be OK?
