6.31. "File not found" (@RISK 4.x)

Applies to:
@RISK for Project 4.x

Problem:
When I open my project, I get one or more "file not found" messages. It doesn't tell me which file it's looking for.

Response:
Please try our examples, which are in folder RISKPJ41\Examples or RISKPJ40\Examples under your Palisade installation directory. If those projects run, your particular project file may be corrupt.

To fix a corrupt project file:

  1. Open Microsoft Project (not @RISK) and open the project.
  2. Do File » Save As and select the type XML.
  3. Close the original project.
  4. Open the XML project, making a note of any error messages.
  5. Save the XML project as an MPP project under a new name, then fix whatever problems the messages revealed.

We found this solution by a Web search, leading to the article "How to troubleshoot damaged projects in Microsoft Project" (accessed 2009-08-29). It is no longer in its original location, but this archived copy is still available.
