Application Crash Trashed My File!!!
Read 175 times
* April 11, 2017, 08:20:25 PM
TurboCAD Mac "Pro" (and I say "Pro" with much sarcasm) beautifully executed yet another one of its fantastic application crashes, except this time while saving my file. Now the file is "damaged" and will not open. Two weeks worth of work. Gone. Is there any way to recover the data from what did get saved to disk prior to the crash so I don't have to start over from scratch?

I have had damaged files reload after several tries, but If it doesn't work by the fourth time then it's gone. You should enable auto-save. Saved files are found using the "Open Backup" under the "File" menu.

I do have auto-save enabled. There is no "Open Backup" in the File menu. My File menu contains: New, New Using Wizard, Open, Open Examples, Close, Save, Save As, Save As Symbol, Revert, Properties, Compact, Import, Export, Shortcuts, Page Layout, Page Setup, Print, Print Window, Print by Layer, and three MRU entries. The file's size in Finder also seems small for the amount of data the drawing contained.

This file is damaged! Cannot read into application.
File position: 15815
File size: 15815
Filename: HullTexture.tcp

I assumed that you have V10, the "Open Backup" is a new option in V10. Your backup folder is found in your com.imsi.turbocadmacpro9ESD folder. In the "Finder" menu click on "Go" while holding down the "Option" key. Select "Library" then double click on "Application Support" and "com.imsi.turbocadmacpro9ESD". Open your "Backup" folder to find your file. In MacOS Sierra, the "Library" folder is on longer hidden, so open your "Home" folder then double click on "Library" and proceed as above.

If you have multiple files of the same name you may not know which one is the most current since these file backup numbers are reused. Click on each backup file and use the "Get Info" under the "Finder" menu to see the time stamp.

Didn't even know V10 was available. The application doesn't notify of updates, and there is no Check For Updates in any of the menus. Backup folder is empty, even though auto-save was set up for every 10 minutes. Repeated tries to open the file fail. Seriously questioning the competence of the programmers. I'm a CAD programmer by profession and would never ever let software this buggy get even to beta testing.

The Backup folder is not created until the first auto-save file is made, therefore at least one file should be in the folder. Check to be sure that you are looking in the correct com.imsi.turbocadmac... folder. If it's saving every 10 minutes then the files are somewhere, perhaps a Spotlight search or looking through "All My Files" may find them. The auto-save function has been reliable, the main complaint is locating the Backup folder, but once found the backups are there.

I have seen that writing a file with a bad object in it will cause the write to fail. I would think that there is a bug in the save function. As a developer, you know that when a file is saved it is written to a temporary file name, upon success the temp name is then replaced with the correct name. If there is a write fail then the original file is kept and the temp file is not renamed, of course, I'm assuming that the attribute to do this is set.

That's exactly how I would expect a CAD application to save - write to a temp file, if the save is successful then rename overwriting the original file. If that is how TC performs its saves, then there is a flaw because it's now the original file that got corrupted when the application crashed, not a temp file. So I'm now redrawing the whole file from scratch (yay....) and doing my own periodic backups of files since TC cannot be trusted to do so.

I see you are using TC v8 build 1137, the current build is 1167. Find it here:

http://downloads.imsidesign.com/TCMAC/v8/TurboCADMacPro8_1167_ESD.dmg

GPFLT is a general protection fault, almost sure to be a program bug. Hope the upgrade serves you better.

Enjoy

Exactly what I've been trying to say from the beginning - a program bug. (The application has several - crashes happen randomly, and as a user they SUCK.) Like I mentioned, I didn't know an update was available because TC doesn't check for them and there is no menu command to check for updates. Thanks for the link - I'll give it a try. Hopefully it won't make things worse. Based on the thoroughness of TC programmers I'm doubtful.....

I get this many times when saving - what does it mean?

Resolve Links Needed

This file has geometry that has links unresolved. Are
you sure you want to continue?


Why would there be "unresolved links"??? I'm just drawing and editing objects.

Objects that are related to each other have links between them. An example would be to draw a rectangle and then extrude it. There will be links between the rectangle and the solid. Changing the size of the rectangle will change the size of the solid. There is a check box in Preferences -> General tab that allows you to turn off auto resolve, but it doesn't turn off linking, you will need to manual resolve constantly. You can remove these links by selecting the item/s click on "Remove Links". I have had my share of unresolved links but have never been able to create one through empirical testing so I don't know what a user could do to break a link. Thus I am unable to advise you on how to avoid breaking links.

Once you have unresolved links there are two ways to fix them. The first way is to click on Resolve links under the "Edit" menu. This is normally grayed out but when there is an unresolved link it will become active and will fix all unresolved links. The second way is selecting the "Features" tab (Entities in V10) in TurboCAD Explorer. If you have an unresolved item selected it will have a big red "Stop Sign" with an R on it, right-click on the item name and click on the "Force Resolve Links". This will resolve this link only and you will need to repeat for other links.

Enjoy

Well I have no idea how the unresolved links are occurring. Like I said, I'm simply creating and editing cylinders and boxes. I guess I'll just need to get into the habit of checking the Edit menu for an enabled Resolve Links before each Save operation. (Yet another workaround.)
