    I never did get an answer to this question so I am trying again.

    Why do I get a "serialization" error when trying to open a program from a write-protected volume?

    see the screenshot attached

    What a long, strange trip it's been.

    Are you trying to open a program that may have been written in a later version?

      John, I suspect you do not have any problem at all. You just want to see where the hi-jack will go this time!

      Sorry, since none of the B&S/Wilcox/Hexagon people have offered you any help in your previous thread, I think you are going to have to resort to the 1-800-#

        Did you try my suggestions from the other thread?

        Open a program from a write protected folder on the hard drive rather than the network to be absolutely 100% sure the network isn't the problem?

        Open a file from some other form of protected media such as a write protected floppy or a CD?

          Yep, I copied a program and its .cad file to a CD, closed the CD to writing and tried to open the program with PCD.
          The screenshot error above is the result.

          PCD is obviously trying to write something when a program is being opened. It would be good to know if this can be prevented or if the file that is being written (probably some kind of temp file) could be redirected to some other place.

            IF you have a hyper-report in the program, I do beleive it is tring to write a hyper-report file, so, if the program has a hyper-report in it, make a copy of it, delete the hyper-report, and try it again.

              I'm going with this guy. What version are you trying to open it with and has the program ever been opened with a higher version?

                No it isn't that(don't know what it is either), but it's not the older vs newer version thing. The error wouldexplicilty say soemthing to the effect that this program was made with a newer version blah blah blah.

                  Could it be the way your IT dept has your profiles set-up on the computers for access.

                    Gotcha.

                    When you explore to the file or check it's properties how big is it?

                      Yeah that is a good idea. Whoever is programming with DMIS is required by the software to have "administrative" rights on that computer(3.7 and above require this.

                        Why do they have to have local admin rights?

                          Sorry I don't know the answer to that, I just know it is needed.

                            No hyper-report.

                            No version issues.

                            No profiles problem.

                            Pcd will not open a program from a directory that it cannot write to.

                            Why?

                            That is my question and, is there a way around it?

                              Are you printing the report to a file? Is it hanging up because the write path for a report save is to a 'blocked' directory?
