Softimage cannot open this file


I'm having a continual problem reopening files in Softimage.

After having worked on a a file, saved it and reopened it several times there is inevitably

a point when I try to open it again and I get an error message saying that the file can't be


The only way I know how to deal with this is to uninstall and reinstall the application.

Why does this happen and is there any way to fix the problem without having to uninstall?

Thanks for your consideration,

I have used Soft for years, and not had these kind of problems. However, you might try these:

1. Delete your preferences folder: C:\Users\Login\Autodesk\Softimage_2014\Data\Prefer ences
It is a good thing to back up this folder for later use, if you customize the interface much. A new preference folder will get created when you restart the software.

2. File / Merge to merge your current file into another one.

...or Save your geometry as a model and import the model into a new file.

Hope this helps,

I have never had this issue either.

If Ohmanoggin good advice doesn't work can you tell more about your file? occurs with all or not?
