When trying to redisplay a stored Particle Trace solution getting error:Error: Files <(><<)>filename>.ptd and <(><<)>filename>.shp are notconsistent.Possible reason:Trying to redisplay an incomplete stored Particle Trace solution (.PTD)with a complete or different "hits" (.SHP) file.
Information:When processing a solution, if it was cancelled before completion, thensaved anyway, this makes an incomplete solution that does not have allthe needed information to redisplay the solution later. When thishappens, the "Hits" file (.SHP) will need to remain in order to see thesolution as saved.When the incomplete solution is saved the following message is returned:"WARNING: Only n% of surfaces have been meshed!"Details:Additional meshing may be required to display other views of thissolution.The file <(><<)>filename>.shp will be required for additional meshing.If the Solution file (.PTD) does not match the Hits (.SHP) file, it willreport the message:Error: Files <(><<)>filename>.ptd and <(><<)>filename>.shp are notconsistent.Solution:-Get the matching Hits (.SHP) file that goes with the solution (.PTD)file.OR-Rebuild the entire solution.
