    DX Schematic requires "Repair"

    Rlongton

      I work with two other engineers. We share schematic projects regularly.

      Often but not always, when I open a schematic that has been worked on previously by a certain user, I cannot open the schematic.I get a message that says the program cannot make an ICDB connection. It

      further advises me to use  "ICDB project backup" in order to repair the project.

       

      What is the problem here?

       

      DXDesigner, 9.4.1

      Floating license

       

      Only difference I can see is I am using Windows XP while he is using Windows 7

       

      Thanks

          One thing the Repair does is looks for and removes the server address file that acts like a lock file.

           

          If you try to open a (single user mode) project that your co-worker still has open (or the database is still being written after a close) the server address file exists and DxDesigner can not open it. Running Repair will remove this file. So in this case Repair is a pretty strong word, a gentle "Clean-up" is more likely what is happening.
