hi guys i have a solidworks file in which i created a body of a car after finishing the project i see that solidworks doesnt open the file i dont know why plz help me its really important for me heres the file
You created in SolidWorks and.........
You can't open the file??? is it corrupt?? - You may need tech support Rick Becker to come to your facility to extract the file from your folders, he has minimal fees and will travel anywhere....
Yep! I can't open it either Mahdi. What did you do?
So sorry to hear of your troubles with this file.
I believe my firm, Dewey, Cheatem & Howe, can help you. Either me, or one of my Top Rated Associates, will be pleased to come to your site and retrieve your file.
As you know, the data in our files are priceless. A price cannot be put on the losing of a file of this importance. We have the most advanced tools and methods possible to help you.
Just send me First Class Airfare to your destination. Arrange for ground transportation along with accommodations at the closest 4-Star hotel. A small daily stipend will be required for food and necessary accoutrements. Tipping is not required, but is greatly appreciated.
Hope to see you soon. Thanks to John Stoltzfus for the recommendation.
Now come on - A little ching ching goes before the Thanks
You need to tell us more, or we cannot help you. I left my all-fixing wand with the Atlantean guardians because it was too Over Powered. I also left my tin foil psychic cap (not aluminum!!) with them so they could know when treasure hunters are coming and protect the wand better. So, all I have left is curiosity and experience. It is not enough to help you as of now.
"Doesn't open the file," is insufficient. Does it give you an error message? That's very relevant. Does it just crash your application? Does it crash your PC? Does it crash your truck?
What type of file is it?
Did you make this at home and take it to work/client's location?
Did you create this file on the same computer system you are trying to open it with? How long ago?
Did computer(s) have same installation version as in year and service pack? What is it? What Operating System?
Are you on subscription? Do you have a VAR? Have they helped?
Loss of connectivity between operator and file storage can corrupt a file. Is file local or stored remotely like on a server?
System and/or network maintenance can impact performance and files. Did anyone change your environment? Is security different? Were you authorized? Are you still authorized?
Basically interrupting anything that Solidworks is trying to do with a file can corrupt it. Did it crash when creating it or saving it?
Do not answer all my questions as I will likely not return to respond. Others may help though. Tell us more to receive assistance, particularly the relevant details of process, device, installation, file, location, transmission, environment, purpose, ownership, liability.. ok fuggedaboutit my brain hurts now. Where'd I put that wand?
Also, we are not a VAR. Your VAR should be able to help you far better anyway. Talk to them and get the value out of the money you regularly pay them.
Commissions will be paid promptly upon my return...
LOL, those guys are funny, eh?
Must be my old age!
Anyway, I would contact your VAR and send them the file. Not sure what is going on.
The first thing that came to mind was this:
Do you have two different version of Solidworks on your computer? (i.e., do you have SW 2015 AND SW 2016 installed?)
If so, make sure that you are opening the file in the same version that you created it in, otherwise you will get that error.
What Tom Gagnon said....
Ummmmm, WHOA!!!!!! Ease Up buddy........ 50% partnership here REMEMBER!!!!!!!!!!
North Hemisphere, South Hemisphere, Blah Blah Blah................
Don't go splashing the cash just yet!
Is it competition if they aren't charging?
Lol, VAR's already been paid...........
I can't open it either. I don't suppose you saved an earlier version of it?
I'm sorry, Dave - YouTube
Your lawyer just called that name is taken "Dewey, Cheatem & Howe"
Needs to be changed to "Dewdrop, Cheatem & Hold'mUp, ltd, inc.
what do you mean? if i pay some money you come to my country and fix my file ...... with all the things (hotel, and everything else) prepared by me.
guys it says that
"cant open file... future version" and i have opened it with even version 2016 and it doesnt open whats wrong with the file??????
They were joking with you, although I suspect that if you really did want to pay someone to do this, they would *grin*.
However, your Solidworks reseller (The people you bought Solidworks from) might be able to fix the problem for you, assuming you still have a subscription with them.
That being said, really what Tom Gagnon said has some weight to it. Normally, we need to know a LOT more information than what you have provided to give any help, as the error that you described could have happened in a LOT of different ways.
I assume that the file is corrupt, since a few people already responded with a similar error that you had.
That generally means that, at this point, you have gone beyond the resources of the people on this list (well, at least, you have gone beyond MY resources, *grin).
You will need to get involved with your subscription services people to help resolve, I think (I could be wrong)
which version you got
Ouch!..this error is not good... (error shown in 2017)...
so,.. if you have a "SWBackupDirectory"... go to it ASAP.. and see if the last saved file was there!?
Let me guess, you are a student and this is your project which is due next week. Am I close?
Mahdi,..the file is corrupt.
How could you make the file and now not open the file. Can you re-model the file?? - Did you download the file from another Website, maybe it's corrupt with Mal-Ware??
Mahdi is our Favorite student here at The Forum. Mahdi asks more questions than any other person in the history of The Forum, and we love the challenges because the questions are genuine.
It took us a while to get Mahdi to stop typing in Large Red ALL CAPITAL fonts.:)
We have learned much together and welcome the opportunity to help.
In this case, John is correct. Look for the backup copy on your local drive.
