    "Failure on attempt to open file" Error Message

    PVA - Jim

    If when you use the File > Open Recent menu, you encounter this error message:

    failure on attempt to open file.png


    This normally indicates that the file has been moved from the location it was in when Vectorworks last accessed it. 

    This does not indicate a problem with the file itself, you will simply need to locate the file on your machine and then either double click it, or use File > Open in Vectorworks and select the file manually.
