  • Anyone know where this error comes from?

    I'm sure some of you have seen this error and I have as well but what I'm wondering is why the heck it shows up. Any ideas? This is usually not a pleasant error to come across since the program it comes from is usually now corrupted.

    A lot of the time, this error is due to a corrupt probe file. AND, it may NOT be the entire probe file that is corrupt, but just the data for ONE tip in it that is used in THAT program and that using the same probe file in another program that does NOT use the tip will open and run fine, and maybe, JUST maybe, re-calibrating will fix the corruption. HOWEVER, when you first see this error, DELETE the probe file for the program, then try opening it again and see if the error goes away. If you can not remember WHICH probe file it uses, simply rename the entire directory of probe files (you DO keep them in their OWN directory, right?), create a 'new' directory of the same name (so that the path exists), and try opening the program again without ANY probe files in the directory. Rebuild the probe (if the program opens), save and close, then copy all th eprobes BACK into the new directory, telling it NO, DO NO OVER-WRITE existing files in the directory.

      You are right about the program. When I have had this error it was becuase the probe file that it uses is corrupt. So when it opens the program it gets hosed. I'm sure that there are other reasons that this happens, and I know there will be others here that can help answer further.

        Matt,

        I tried your idea but did not have any luck. Fortunately, we save every cavity as it's own individual program so I have lots of programs that I can "mess" with. I may be screwed on this one. We're probably going to lose 4 days of programming.

        I tried renaming the probe file, I tried deleting the probe file, and I tried renaming the directory but it will still not load the full program. After I acknowledge the error it opens the program but 90% of the program does not show up. The program only uses 1 probe file. I'm not sure what my next step is other than sending the program to B&S and see if they can open it. Any other ideas?

        I appreciate the replies. Thanks a bunch

          Just a thought, look at the program and see if you are missing an "end of dimension" statement anywhere? I have found this to be a problem beofre. Don't know if it will fix this problem.

            James... I would but I can't get the full program to open. I get the error then the program only opens about 10% of the program. Good idea though...

              Ok... whenever we run parts we highlight the whole program and then cut and paste and save it as a ".txt" file. We save the ".rtf" file, an "IGES" file and we save the program per cavity. I have 8 programs, 8 text files, 8 rtf files, and 8 IGES files. When I look at the text file there ARE dimensions that don't have, "end of dimension". However, these are distance measurements. Should the also have the end of dimension at the end?

              If so then this is the second time in a week that we have had this problem. The other time was location dimensions that did not have the end of dimension. We fixed that and then had no problems. I'm going to need to go over the whole text file to make sure we're not having the same problem.

              I tried to paste the text into a new program but I get a "line to long" error. I'll keep searching... Thanks guys!

                All of the "location and Position" dimensions have "end of dimension" but all of the other dimensions do not.
