It happens consistently that eventually when trying to open an existing project file, even with a brand new installation of the app, I get the error message: “Softimage cannot open this file”.
I must therefore use Merge to open any project file.
After many uninstalls and re-installs this problem persists.
I’ve several times deleted the Preferences folder, deleted the Softimage folder in Program Files, and deleted the Softimage entry in the Registry and then re-installed the program.
This works for a while but the problem inevitably returns.
I’ve posted before about this and Ohmanoggin replied that as a long time user he’d never encountered this problem but for me the issue makes work consistently more difficult than it should be.
