Freelance Project File error
I was trying to open my project file but due to my computer hang i restart. After which when i want to re-open the project file which i used just now it is showing me this error. Am i able to rectify this to open the project file?
Pic 1: Document folder have this .BAK file and .LOG file stuck there
Pic 2: Error msg displayed on the CBF
First of all make backups of the pro, bak and log files to be sure they are not deleted or overwritten.
Usually if CBF starts and finds a .Bak file it will start to auto-recover the project information. But seems in your case the damage is so profound that CBF has to close.
You can try the following:
1. First do the backup mentioned above
2. Delete the .Bak and .Log file and try to open the .Pro file with CBF
3. If 2. doesn't work, delete the .Pro file and restore the .Bak file only, but rename it to .Pro. Then try to open it with CBF
4. If 3. doesn't work, restore a project backup (that you hopefully did at one point in time) using the project manager (menu Project / Project Manager in the P-tree)
In future you should use the Auto-Backup feature introduced with Freelance 2013. You can configure it in the project header.
If you didn't do a backup previously then contact your local ABB support and ask that R&D have a look at your files. Maybe they can fix it.
