- M9 can't open M8 Project
We have tried opening our M8 projects using M9 and have not been able to open any of our projects.
the project starts to load, a window showing the count of layers a that are being loaded is displayed and then before it finished the message "Can't Load Data" is displayed. The load is aborted and Manifold is left with a blank project.
We want to start using M9 but can't until we can open our M8 projects.
We can send you an M8 project if needed.
The buld is 22.214.171.124 for M9, unzipped cutting edge.
The project is a template that we use to create new projects. When loading the project Manifold says it is loading 317 objects.
The template consists of :
1) Many Map definitions,
2 ) many local drawings
3) Many prefined local SQL queries
4) Many VBScripts
5) many Layouts
6) many images
7) a couple of links to MS SQL server
Going through this list , I can see that there will be issues with VBScripts, SQL scripts and connections to the MS SQL Server.
We have something like 300 M8 project files. If we have to recreate all 300 projects from scratch that will be a large impediment to moving forward with M9.
I have unlinked the one table that is linked to an Ms SQL table, but the load is still aborting. I will continue to remove objects until I get a good load. This is going to be slow.
Does M9 produce a log file of any kind that might show which object is causing the load to abort?
Just tried it.
It does not log the offending object that causes the load to fail.
