We have noticed an issue on one machine regarding a project we have started in Plant 3D. The error that comes up when we open the project is "INTERNAL ERROR: !dbobji.cpp@7319 eNot Open For Write". Has any one come across this? Does anyone out there have any best practice documents etc on project setup?
The reason for asking is that now when we open Plant 3D, the same project tries to open but crashes everytime and closes Plant 3D. The only way to get it working again is to delete the USER Key in the registry and fire up the secondary installer for Plant 3D... This removes the link and loads the default project template. We can open the project again but unfortunately we end up in the same position...

More information for you all...
Our IT department had a real good go at this and provided me with the following regarding this issue which you might want to try for yourselves?
However, they did say that they tired so many things it is hard to say what really fixed it in the end.

If these alone don’t work you could try the below also and repeat steps above;
Good luck, i hope this helps others who are having this issue.
I've seen people not able to open a project, but I haven't seen that error come up.
The resolution we came across was to rename the project on the network, and then use the newly named project.
Of course, I have no idea whether that will work in this scenario.
The error that you posted general comes when an application has opened an AutoCAD database object to read it, but neglected to upgrade it's permissions to allow writing back to that object.
Thanks for the reply.
We can now get back into Plant 3D 2012 by opening the drawing directly from Windows Explorer, personally i think that the issue is related to the Project Manager and the XML behind it as i can create a project and it works fine. Something has to be amiss here but im not sure what it is i should be looking for that could cause this?
Are you aware of any best practice documents for project setup, just to read over...
Also, Do you know if there are any altercations with user permissions or locked files etc? *.dwl / *.lock / *.plck
Does the same issue happen if you open the project from another machine?
You could try running the PnPLocalDataCachePurger.exe on the problem machine.
This is located in the install directory:
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2012 - English
Thanks for your response! We did try opening the file on another machine but the same happened unfortunately.
I will send your suggestion on in terms of the PnPLocalDataCachePurger.exe and let you know how we get on.
I suspect the PnPLocalDataCachePurger.exe won't fix this if the project itself is causing the issue.
I'll do some more research on the error and get back to you.
I have one user who is getting this same error, but it's using AutoCAD Mechanical 2012. It's driving me nuts! There seems to be no rhyme or reason for this.
Same issue over here with AutoCad Mechanical 2012 (with update pack 1) on two machines so far.
It happens random and have not found a solution yet.
A quick google search shows that it happens with other Autodesk applications too. No luck with a definite answer. My only thought is to make sure you send in the error report if it asks. That way our developers can see what's failing and fix it.
