corrupt file?
on Oct 10, 2007 at 6:45:25 pm

Hi. I'm attempting to open a M100i program from 2006. The file had been on a backup DVD and was put back onto the hard drive. The problem I'm having is this: when I attempt to open the program I get a message saying "Rebuilding real-time preview files, please wait..." The message flashes on and off, but never stops. The clip that it's working on is a logo bug that runs nearly the length of the program. I don't have problems opening other programs. Could this be a corrupt file? Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Hi Nick,

When you copied the file onto your system from the backup DVD, did you change its permissions from read-only to read-write?

I'm guessing here, but it might be trying to update the file unsuccessfully.

Hi Kieran. Thanks for the thought. I just checked the permissions and they are OK. Surprisingly, when I opened the program in a different project it worked fine. Wish I had an intelligent explanation for that - but I'll take it and move on.

I have, if you like to hear it ;-)

Most likely what happens is that in your old project there are media locations specified that don

Floh, once again, you nailed it. Thanks! If you're not on the M100 payroll you should be.
