While placing equipment in the model, below error message is displayed in message center and equipment diagram disappears from component placement dialog. Below is the dialog and error when placing pump.
This error is appearing mainly because the cell library which has the diagrams for equipment is missing in the workspace. This file is generally located inside C:\ProgramData\Bentley\OpenPlantModeler V8i\WorkSpace\OPModeler\cells folder.
Copy equipmentdiagrams00.cel file from delivered workspace and paste it in your workspace at the location given above.
Repair the OpenPlant Modeler installation to get this file back into the workspace.
Once the file is placed at the above said location, this error should go away and you should see the equipment diagram in preview section of component placement dialog box.
If above problem still persist, then please create a Service Request and contact the Bentley Product Advantage group. Please include a list of all relevant details to get in depth analysis for a solution or workaround.
Bentley's Product Advantage Group requests that you please confine any comments you have on this Wiki entry to this "Comments or Corrections?" section. THANK YOU!
