VW 11.5 crashes at page setup

Recommended Posts

G4/800 quicksilver

Have recently performed an upgrade from OS9.2.2 to OS 10.4.2. The funny thing is that when a drawing created in VW11.5 in 9.2.2 is opened in VW11.5.1 in 10.4, VW crashes when page setup is opened.

A drawing created in VW11.5 with OS 10.3.9 has no problems.

We've found we can get around this by exporting as a vectorscript and then reimporting the file into a new document or by creating a new document and copying and pasting the layers across. This is a bit annoying though...

Is there another way???

Did you trash both of your old Preference files ? Then restart and re-initialize VW with your SN# ?

Forgot to say that I reformatted the hard drive prior to installing OS X 10.4.

I also repaired permissions with disk utility after installing VW.

I've also since tried trashing the VW prefs file and then re inputting the serial no and the problem still exists.

Many thanks to Richard of Solutions inc. for helping us out on this one

if anyone else has the problem here's a work around that doesn't involve having to rebuild the drawing file.

The work around involves clearing the OS 9 print settings from the file. There is a small vectorscript that does this called "Clear Print Settings OS9.vss". I think it is available from the Nemetschek Knowledge base.

open the drawing file.

go to File - import - select Clear Print Settings OS9.vss

click OK.

Everything then works fine.

Remember to save the drawing file before closing it .down

Barry,

How do you access that script? I downloaded it fine, but it seems to be encrypted and importing or running it only yields a VectorScript Error.

Barry,

That would be great. Check your private messages. I will send you my email address.
