Hi Bentley Community,
Upon opening Promis.e V8i (select series 8), I receive the 'Restore Project' dialog box (Project Manager and ECad.dgn still appear as normal in the background) so I click 'Cancel' and then I can continue as normal.
Is there a way to have this not show up at Start-Up?
FYI, It is pointing to an old .prj I made last week (8-11-18).
Just for trial and error to fix, when I rename this superseded .prj backup (i.e the same .prj that comes up in the 'Restore Project' dialog box) e.g. name of 'X.prj' (now renamed to 'X2.prj'), the only difference I see is in Option 3 - 'Enter a project name for the restored project', the Name below it, goes blank and the red asterix appears to enter a new name! As if I were restoring a project as normal.
Note: I have had this come up few weeks ago, but it just corrected itself. I don't remember how it got fixed, just kept on pressing cancel.
Note: I have not double-clicked on the .prj file. I have opened the shortcut to Promis.e. I believe when you open a .prj it opens this same 'Restore Project' dialog box.
I could delete the .prj and also the restored folder, but was hoping there is another way as I want to Maintain all backups as they are.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated
Many Thanks & Kind Regards, Ben.
Hi Ben,You can try renaming/deleting the per user configuration (Promis.e V8i folder) from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Bentley
ORTry restoring the Platform Defaults for Promis.eLet me know if this works for you.Regards,Sarvesh KulkarniProduct Engineer - Bentley Systems
Both Suggestions have not solved the issue. I still get 'restore .prj' on start-up.
Hi Ben,As you mentioned that You do not have Promis.e V8i folder in ....AppData\Roaming\Bentley\ only have Microstation and ProjectWise folder.It mean software is not able create default .xml files.Can we have a live meeting or screen sharing session with you so that we can look into your issue.Please provide us your contact details.Regards,
I eventually found my user login (PC had multiple similar logins!) and renamed then re-open Promis.e - But I still get the restore box?
