My apologies in advance if this question has already been dealt with elsewhere. I haven't been able to find anything, but would appreciate a link to the relevant topic if it exists.
I've just installed v17, & can't open some of my old .tcw files. I'm able to open most files, right back to v4, but there are some recent files which give the error "Failed to open ...file name... :Loading Graphics".
The problem files seem to be ones that behaved strangely in my previous TC version (v15). The problems I was having were to do with parts of the 3D model I was building disappearing. I would come back the next day to continue working where I left off, only to find that great portions of the model had disappeared. The .bak file was good for recovering most of the lost model, but I never felt comfortable with that file again - there were 3 or 4 of these files over time. Even though there were problems with these files, TC (up to v15) would open them of a fashion, but now v17 won't.
Is it a common issue? Is there a remedy/workaround? Is it something I'm doing wrong? Is v17 clever enough to recognise a corrupt .tcw file? What should I do?
So many questions. Any takers for answers?
Once again, sorry if this has been dealt with elsewhere previously, & I would appreciate some help/guidance/whatever, as to how to deal with v17 not opening all files.
