Seems like I’m having trouble with my latest project with corrupt files.
My first version of the project stopped working after a couple of weeks work. Frustated, I started making a copy of the first project from scratch and now it stopped working the second time i opened it…
Same story both times: “Unexpected file format”
My google-research suggests I may have a corrupt image or something in my project. Since I’ve only imported one picture (besides the Geo-location) and pretty much followed the exact same procedure both times, it’s easy to have a main suspect…
Can someone help me recover my project? (praying to the gurus out there)
Skarp.skp (1.3 MB)
Fascinating! When I tried to open this file on my Mac (SU version 16.1.1451) I got the following popup:
Last time I checked, 16.1.1449 is a Windows variant of the same release as Mac 16.1.1451! Certainly it is not a newer version! This seems like a bug, but it could be tripped by a defect in your file.
Oh, now I see - it is no doubt because (according to your profile) you have the 63-bit edition of SketchUp
Haha, I get it to! Hilarious!
Even though I upgraded my 63-bit to 64-bit!
Lets try a backup of the project instead:
Skarp 160905.skp (1.3 MB)
Unfortunately, that version gets an invalid file error on my Mac.
Ok Any luck with this one?
Skarp 160904.skp (1.0 MB)
Same “Unexpected file format” for me…
Sorry, invalid file on that one too. So, best we can hope is that a Trimble developer will take a look and find something they can fix. According to the crash trace, it was trying to render shadows when it splatted.
Ok! Fingers crossed!
Thanks for your help anyway
@slbaumgartner, How about this?
Must be that danged computer arithmetic again!
I need a newer version that is older than my current version…
Yeah… I’m a time traveler…
I have Mac SU version 16.1.1451 (64 bit), but just get “File not found or invalid” as the error message - then a second popup that says “The file Skarp 160904.skp could not be opened”, then it ends when I click OK.
File >> Open gives the version warning, double click to open gives what your seeing…
Thanks for that clarification - I hadn’t tried File Open, just the double click.
But now I DO try File Open, I get the same error messages as I did before, without the version warning. So not the same as you are getting.
Trying to import into a new file gives me this
Opening gives the “Unexpected file format” error.
