  • Serialization Error

    I am using PC DMIS V4.1. I was running my program and PC DMIS shut down. I went to open it back up and got a "Serialization error: ALT", and it will not open. I tried rebooting, changed the name of the probe file, and deleted the associated CAD file. I still get this error. Can anyone help?

    Thanks,
    -Steve Wittenberg

      When it shut down was it perhaps in the process of writing the program?
      If so, you have a corrupt program.
      Has happened to me many times,
      is why I will will not use auto-save,
      it just increases chance of this happening in my opinion.

        Running the parogram, that measn the program was all done being created. Do you have a backup of it (like you should)? Not to be a jerk, but unless you created that program 100% all on the same day as your problem, you should have a backup somewhere from the day before. Daily backups are pretty much a requirement when working with Pcdmis.

          Did PC-DMIS crash while you were saving your program?

          If that is the case, you are in BIG trouble. No way to recover.

          Make sure that you have the hotfix installed if you run XP (look for previous posts here, search for hotfix). That helps a little. Other than that: Like Matt said, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up, back-up,

            Just in case Jan didn't get his point across:

            BACK UP!
            When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                Is there a WIDE LOAD load sign on your bumper.

                    PC DMIS is new to me, so I thought my bases were covered with the auto-save function...big rookie mistake!! I'm making backups today!!
                    On the "serialization error ALT" I was in the process of proving my program, is this program more than likely gone?

                    Thanks for your help.

                        Sorry, but I think there is no hope.... Last August, this happened to me daily! Installed the hotfix and it went down to once a month. Obviously still totally unaccepable.

                        I ONLY have it happen to me during a SAVE operation. It happens when I press Ctrl-S or go through the File menu. Right after I press one of those, I see the "progress" bar get more blue. And if it halts somewhere in the middle, I am dead meat. I lost that program and have to go back to an older version. I can never repeat it. It just happens.

                        I am so paranoid now that I not only save a back-up of ALL my programs EVERY day (wrote an automatic batch file that executes once a day in the background), I also wrote a script that saves a program EVERY time it gets run (or executed). I am "proud" to say that I have not lost more than a few hours of work lately.

                        Of course, this is quite bizar to even have to bring up. But it seems that he who works with Demons, will learn to enjoy to live among demons.

                          What's to keep the backup from getting corrupted.

                            Absolutely nothing....Just an added enhancement to the software.

                              That is why CD (or DVD) backups are a very good idea.
