  • Serialization Error : ALT

    A BIG call for help here!!!
    After doing the sensible 'Back Up' of my PCDmis progs to a DVD, (and them all dissappearing from the Server) I am now required to use a ver3.5 prog again.
    So, I copied the required prog back to my local HDD, and surprise, surprise, PCDmis won't load it!!!!

    I've tried to open it in 3.2,3.5mr2,3.7R,3.7mr1, even v4.0!!!! NO HOPE!!!

    I've used a little app. to check for 'Cyclic Redundancy' on the copy process.....no problems reported.
    I've checked it's NOT 'read only'.

    The backups are all present, all still associated with PCDmis, all copy OK via windoze explorer, but WON'T OPEN!!!!!!!!!!

    ANY help or advice is GREATLY appreciated!!!!!

    I have been told by HEXAGON (B&S UK) that the progs are corrupt, but I feel this is a poor excuse. As the prog in question is 2 1/2 days work, I could do without a reprog!!!!!

    Try deleting the probe file it wants to use, then re-creating it once you get it open.

      If the server is regularly backed up can they restore your original files?

        Deleting Probe file

        The CMM that the prog was initially written on has been sold, so the probe file went with it!

          Server Backup.

          Thought of that one, the drive on the server containing the Applications Data, Progs etc, was not and is not Backed up!!!! (management fault!!!)

            Every time i've experinced this it is a corrupt probe profile not the pgm itself, do as Matt suggested, delete the probe profile & reduild it after you open the pgm.

              Tried that one, I have tried to open the programme on 5 different PC's, they all can't have the probe file on them!! The PC that did have the probe file isn't here anymore, I have even sent the file to Hexagon (B&S UK) for them to try & open.

                  other programs with the same probe open. My programs are stored locally on my pc. is there any where that windows is keeping a back-up file hidden by chance? or a way to access what was last saved last night. I am pretty sure I do not have a restore point since last night.

                    NOPE, windoze does not do that, your IT department should be keeping your PC backed up and it wouldn't hurt for you to do a little yourself. We have:
                    Daily back-ups
                    Weekly back-ups
                    Monthly back-ups
                    Quarterly back-ups
                    So I can get any program easily from IT from up to a week ago from the 'daily tape', I can go back by week, month, or 3 months. In addition to that, I do my OWN back-ups daily, so I can just grab them from a partition on the hard drive. So, if Ihave a problem, I first go to my back-ups, if for some reason they are slimes as well, then I go to the IT guys to get them back.

                      thanks matt
                      That's what i figured. We do not have an IT department, so it is all me. I guess this is one of those learn from experience times in my life. I have never had pc-dmis crash and mess up a program. It crashes daily and is never an issue other than just being a pain in the rear. It is time to start doing everything in duplicate.

                        Here is a simple batch file that will back up your stuff for you:
                        Step 1) Open a DOS command prompt window
                        Step 2) Change to the directory where you want the batch file stored (mine is G:\batch)
                        Step 3) Type in EDIT MONDAY.BAT
                        Step 4) You will now have a BLUE window in the place of the command prompt window, this will be the batch file
                        Step 5) Type in the following:
                        MKDIR C:\BACKUPS\MONDAY\PCDMIS (the path can be what ever you want it to be)
                        XCOPY c:\PCDMISFILES c:\BACKUPS\MONDAY\PCDMIS /y /e

                        The MKDIR command will make a directory on your hard drive at the specified path you type in, the XCOPY command will copy ALL the files in the source directory (in this case, C:\PCDMISFILES) to the specified location and the /Y command will tell it to over-write what is there without prompting and the /e will force it to copy everything.

                        Make one of these for each day of the week, then put them into the SCHEDULED TASKS that windows will run for you automatically. I would set them to run about an hour before you get there in the morning if you leave the PC on all the time, OR you can run them yourself everyday at lunch time by double clicking on the batch file in a window's folder.


                        OH CRAP, one thing I forgot, your MOUSE will not work in the edit window, you will have to use the arrow keys and the ALT key. Hitting the ALT key will activate the menu choice at the top of the edit window, then use the arrow keys to move around.
