Exception.log msbatch + repcellWhen trying to replace cells from the command line using msbatch withrepcell.ma an exception.log is created. This seems to happen when the cells to be replaced are library cells not defined in any library included in MS_CELL.Product: MicroStation V8i
Make library cells available in MS_CELL path.The exception may be caused by trying to replace a library cell that cannot be found in any library in the path. If the libraries where the original cells (the cells that you want to replace) come from are still available, placing them in a directory included in the configuration variable MS_CELL should resolve the issue.If those libraries are not available it might be a solution to recreate the missing cells in a separate library. Unfortunately these cells cannot be empty dummies, but need at least the used levels to be defined.
To achieve this, the following steps can be followed:
1. Create a new cell library (dummy.cel for example) and open this as a DGNfile.2. Create a new design model with "Can be placed as a cell" ON and givethis model the name of the missing cell.3. Make this new model the active model.4. Attach a file that contains the missing cell.5. Copy one instance from the cell to the active model.6. Detach the referenced file.
If necessary, repeat steps 2 to 6 for other cells.
