HELP! When I try to open my project file I get this; User-inserted image

I was doing some script writing and the program started acting weird, so I saved the project and shut down ARC. Now I can't open the project.

Try creating a new file and then begin merging in your controls and scripts one at a time from the old corrupt file to the newly created one... Worst case scenario you get back most of your work....

#2  

I can't open the corrupt file

#3  

I know, but can't you open a new file and use the merge function to merge in components from the corrupt file?....

Do you have another copy of your project on the cloud or hard drive?

#4  

Ok, made a new file. When I go to merge I can't check any of the boxes - I to merge from other projects too but can't check the boxes.

#5  

If you want maybe you can you email me your project and I can see if I can get it merged into a new file?

#6  

Email you the file from my C: Drive? Maybe I'm not using the "merge" function properly? I open my new file, click the merge button, open the project I want to merge from, a window comes up with a list of controls with boxes beside them. I click on the little box beside the control and nothing happens. Should the box end up with a check mark in it? Am I doing it correctly?

#7  

Yep, ... Should be in My Documents/ARC/My Projects on C Drive... Email it to me and I will have a look...

#8  

Ok,I'll do that. Do you think it might help to uninstall and then reinstall ARC?

#9  

You can try, can't hurt... Just make sure in the future you make copies to the cloud as well....

#10  

Ran the repair option in the install - didn't make a difference, still not working.

#11  

I think I fixed your file for the most part... There might be a control or 2 missing... revolving around sound servo...

Check your email...

Hopefully it works for you... and whatever you do make another copy of your project asap...

Thanks a lot Richard, it's working now, except for the speech recognition. That's easy to re-do compared to re-doing everything. How did you get it back? I owe ya a case of Crown Royal! Thanks again.

#13  

@Bob.... No worries... I just merged one control at a time until I found the offending control that crashed your project.... I kind of figured is revolved around speech because it happen once to me before... Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for it, however...
