When starting the software, one of the following error occurs. Often the software was running without issue prior to this problem, and other errors may occur when other tools are used to access catalogs or their contents.Internal ErrorError Message: Unrecognized database format "C:\ProgramData\Bentley\promis-e V8i(M)\promise Data\Catalogs\xxxx\catalog.mdb".TargetSite: Int32 NewConnection(System.String)DeclaringType: MDBProxy.ConnectionManagerAttributes: internalMemberType: Method
It is likely that the catalog.mdb file has been corrupted.
In more than one case, the problem was resolved by using the Compact&Repair database function in Microsoft Access.
You can select the Compact on Close database option if you want to automatically compact and repair a database when it closes.
NOTE Setting this option affects only the database that is currently open. You must set this option separately for each database that you want to automatically compact and repair.
In addition to or instead of using the Compact on Close database option, you can manually run the Compact and Repair Database command. You can run the command when you have a database open, and you can run the command on a database that is not open. You can also create a desktop shortcut that runs the Compact and Repair Database command on a particular database file.
NOTE If other users are also currently using the database file, you cannot perform a compact and repair operation.
NOTE If other users are currently using the database file, you cannot perform a compact and repair operation. While you run the compact and repair operation, no one can use the database file.
