Recovering Corrupt Document

Hi Kristin,

I don't think you can with Personal edition unless the easter egg functions work like I described earlier.
Send the document to me and I can see if I can do something with a registered version.

Regards,

Gustav

Re: Recovering Corrupt Document

Hi Everyone,

I'm fighting with an apparently corrupt document, and am attempting to use the Easter Egg method.

Where is "Layout Rescue" in QV11?  I see "Script Rescue" in the list, but not Layout.

Thanks,

DJ

Re: Recovering Corrupt Document

Woohooo!  I installed QV10 on the server where this (large) corrupted QV file exists, and tried the "Layout Rescue" option above.  It worked!  A data-reduced version opened up, including the full UI and script, which is exactly what I was after.  Save'd As, reloaded, and everything is working fine.

Running "Script Rescue" in QV11 also worked, for the script, but we needed the UI dev updates more.

I'm going to [lightly] abuse our developer for not saving backup copies more often while developing, but this solution saved us many hours of re-coding.  Thanks!!

Re: Recovering Corrupt Document

Hello Ggg,

The same doubts about this post that maybe you can help me. I changed my computer and I tried to copy my QVW to new computer but when I tried to open I got the mensage about “failed to open XXX.QVW”. If someone open my file in a QVW licensed and save as, will it possible to open in my new computer?
