This is a new occurrence of an old problem with no solution so far. A user is working in Power InRoads Ss10. After creating a file and adding references, they exit and when they try an open the files, once the session starts, the login to datasource dialog box opens. Logging in or cancelling seems to have the same results- the file never opens and the sessions exit.
A copy was made of the file and the process repeated and the same result occurs.
Further testing revealed that the file fails to open even if accessed from the working directory outside of ProjectWise. In that case, the desktop opens, but the file never loads. A limited number of toolbars load, but there is no main menu or views.
It was also discovered that the files will open in PowerInRoads Ss2.
Here are some of the log entries my PW sent me:

Have you tried copying the problematic File (from the ProjectWise Working Directory) to a different Windows Folder (ex. your Desktop) and open it from there (purposely to exclude References)? If you are able to open without any issue whatsoever, can you then try copying one Referenced File to the same Folder and open again? This is to either rule out a Referenced File issue or to identify the one that is causing the issue. I would then copy each of the remaining Reference Files and test them one at a time.

The file does not open outside of ProjectWise either.

It is likely a damaged file somewhere among the root or it's referenced files.
But how do we find what is bad and fix it?
