Please post the output.log file. Have you changed anything about your computer's configuration or where you are storing your Brain?

Are you getting this message on every Brain your try and open? How about if you try to create a new Brain?

I have installed personal brain on a new computer running win2003 server.  I copied the brain files and folders to the new computer (as I have done many times between my other computers).

New brain opened fine.  Copied thoughts from old brain to new brain - seems to work fine.

here is the output.log for after trying to open a previous brain...

I selected all thoughts in one brain and copied them into a new brain - which worked fine.  Create some new pins and voila, as good as new.

However, after working with it a number of times, I am now getting the same message again.  To my knowledge, I have not done anything except open create links/thoughts, and close it.

here is the new output log.

Is this the first time you've used 2k3 server in this capacity?

I had a machine running 2k3 at a former job, and it did some things differently than its predecessors that made it frustrating to use sometimes.

Quote
Harlan
Please verify my understanding of the facts:
  • The problem is only on a new computer running Windows 2003 Server
  • The problem does not happen if you create a new Brain
  • The problem does happen if you try to open a Brain which you copied from another machine onto the W2K3S machine
  • The problem is now also happening on a Brain created on the W2K3S machine
The error indicates that the database files are either missing or corrupt. This could be an indication that the files are actually missing or corrupt. It could also stem from a permissions problem. Is there any chance the permissions to the folder you are trying to access your Brain from have been changed since you created it? Are you logged on as a different user? This would be my best guess as to the cause of the problem. One way you could verify this would be to copy the problematic brain over onto another machine and see if it opens from there (making sure to adjust permissions as necessary).

Regards,
-Harlan

How would I "adjust the permissions accordingly?"

To verify, yes to all 4 questions.  AND, when I transferred/copied the brain back to my normal computer, I got the same error message - AND, I can't find an output log with the appropriate date on it to paste here.

specifically, I copied the brain and folder to my desktop, and opened it by double clicking and file/open to get the same error.  AND, the output.log in my programfiles/personalbrain folder is the one below - which is dated march 11, and talks about a different brain.  for example, this is the output file...which talks about the KY brain, but the brain I copied and tried to open is the Global_Warming_Debate.brain.  Since I am now locked out of my brains, I am focused on figuring this out.  no back ups for a week, and dozens of hours of work.

The issue of "can't transfer to a brain" could be due to paths to personal folders?

C:\documents and settings\user on XP

C:\users\user on W2K3

I did see a line with a funky slash:

Quote:

Program Settings Location = C:\Users\Mark\AppData\Roaming/PersonalBrain


Does PB default to checking C:\documents and settings for any reason?  Perhaps in using the "\user\Application Data" or "user\Local Settings\Application Data" folders?

Quote
asexymind
I'm not sure how to fix the personal folders thing...

AND, Harlan - I think I did access the brain through multiple users on the win 2003 server.  I created a series of users and might easily have started working on PB through any one of them because I keep documents in the "all users" desktop.  What kind of problems would that create?  Does that explain why, when I try to copy these brains onto other computers, they still won't open?

Unfortunately, the original brain (the one I copied and pasted from) seems to have reverted to an earlier version.  Hence, the data I need is not only unavailable, but unique.  Help...

The "personal folders" thing stems from changes in the W2k3 OS and probably aren't changable.

It sounds like the mutli-user thing is a likely candidate for the problem.

I loaded a fresh computer xp sp2 with a new copy of 4.2, copied the brain files and folder to the computer, then tried to open it.  Same error - here is the output.log file..

Hoping triangulation will help...

I realize that although I did not create a brainzip before the I started being unable to access the databases for this brain, I did create an export for xml to ekp.  Could we use that to restore the information in the brain? Then I can just start over with a new installation of PB and be right as rain...

Hopefully,

Mark

Mark,

We've just left a voicemail for you. We've not been able to determine the cause of this so far, but we'd like to take a look at this problem on your computer via a Web meeting. It sounds like there is something strange going on with copying the files.


Regards,
-Harlan
