sketchbook designer dwg problem

Hello everybody,

 

I was working on something in Sketchbook Designer at School, when suddenly as i tried to save the file, sketchbook decided to ruin my life by crashing again. Now the file seems to be damaged, the program crashes everytime i try to open it. I always get the same massage: Failure to find SERIALNUMBER, or something like that. 

I´ve googeld that and it seems that this has happened before, i tried to install dwg true view on my laptop but its not working somehow. If anybody would be so kind helping me with this you would totaly make my day. The same project crashed before, costing me hours of work again. I would be just so happy to have PNG or something since I was almost finished this time around. 

 

The Dropbox link to my file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jfk99du3lztxm2n/int.zip


Sincerly, nervousbreakdownhappeningsoon

The easiest fix is to try to use a system restore point.  Pick a point when Sketchbook was working go back in time.  There is more info below on how to do it.

Hello,

 

Thank you for your reply!

 

Does that affect the file as well? I think I will have to ask the IT guy about that anyway, we have very limited access on the PCs. 

 

I`ve tried opening it in TrueView by now, but it seems I only have a blank page.

Just by the way, I am posting in the wrong Category am I?

 

Thanks again!

Most files in My Documents should stay the same.  Your files in the desktop may change.

I try to repair your file with a full license of DataNumen DWG Recovery I have purchased. I am sorry that not many are recovered. Below is the recovery log:

 

Recover a REGAPP object called 'AcadAnnotative'.
Recover a REGAPP object called 'ACAD'.
Recover a TEXTSTYLE object called 'Annotative'.
Recover a TEXTSTYLE object called 'Standard'.
Recover a LAYER object called '0'.
Recover a BLOCK_HEADER object called '*Paper_Space'.
Recover a BLOCK_HEADER object called '*Model_Space'.
Recover a BLOCK_HEADER object called '*Paper_Space'.
Recover a VPORT object called '*Active'.
Recover a LTYPE object called 'Continuous'.
Recover a LTYPE object called 'ByLayer'.
Recover a LTYPE object called 'ByBlock'.
Recover a LTYPE object called 'Continuous'.
Recover a DIMSTYLE object called 'Annotative'.
Recover a DIMSTYLE object called 'Standard'.

 

so based on the log:

 

1. Not many objects are recovered.

2. The recovered objects are all control objects, not visible objects.

 

So I believe the result is useless to you.

 

Anyway, I have attached the fixed file for you, in hoping that it has some use.
