Inventor Proect File Missing Message

518 Views, 20 Replies

Hey there

 

Yesterday I got an error stating that a project file was missing and that Inventor would no longer search for it.

The same happened to my colleague, and we didn't think any more about that, since it was stating that the name was "s".

 

Today we found out that one of our folders is actually missing and that it was that project.

We then decided to try and delete another project file, and again, it stated that the name was "s".

 

I'll attach a picture of the warning. When that message popped up, it was supposed to state "Abeto Teknik", but as I said, it didn't.

 

Please fix that so we actually know what's missing rather than just "s" :smileyhappy:

In Inventor, click on the big "I" in the upper left corner, go to Manage, then Projects to bring up a list of projects... is "s" in there?  Can you post a screen shot of this list?

We have too many projects for a single screen shot.

 

There is no "s" in there, and the first time I experienced it, it was supposed to say "B.a. industriservice" and the second time "Abeto Teknik".

I would do a search on your system/network for all  "*.IPJ" files. You may need to then use the Project editor and browse to these locations and re-establish the link.

 

Possibly someone could have deleted the files/folders. Shortcuts are stored in each users profile directory under Windows

 

Something could have happened to your network/server and user profiles as well to cause this.

 

You may need to create new User Profiles within Windows if other issues arise.

I am aware that a IPJ file was missing.

 

Doing a search in shortcuts doesn't provide me with anything named S.

 

The problem is that with two different missing project files, it stated that "s" was missing both times, rather than what the actual projects were named

Looks more like a type error in the "error message" and I would disregard the "s" and seach you system/network for all IPJ's.

 

I would be more concerned with the missing folder, but then again that's what back-ups are for, when things like this happen, just go the the last backup and restore the folder.

Backup is awesome and saved us this time!

 

But we would have reacted sooner if it had written the proper project name rather than just "S" :smileyhappy:

That sounds like the problem we have been experiencing here at our office. Unfortunately it's been happening frequently for one of us and the error looking for project name 's' comes up and then all the projects that were previously populating the folder editor dialog box are gone and the only ones left are 'Default' and 'Interactive Tutorials'. We want to know what is causing this and how to fix it. So far in this thread hasn't really come up with a viable solution to the overall problem. We'd like to explore this a little deeper. If someone can help would be appreciated.

Possibly if the files/folders are across a network you might be having problems with timing and permissions.

Thank you for reporting the issue.

This has been known as DID 1489929 in our product database.

(Basically, the missing project is always shown as "S" instead of actual project name/path)

 

THe code change was made and it's not reproducible anymore in the latest internal build for next major release.

Best,
