Null Resource

Post by spounds » Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:07 pm

I am using CMAP Tools 6.01.01
Today I tried to open a cmap that I've been working on recently and received this message:
Error opening resource (filename)
Unable to read resource: The resource appears to be null.

When I look at the file size in Explorer, it shows 18K, so there's still something there.
I do backup my cmaps, but to OneDrive, so the backup is also corrupt. I haven't done any Save As...

Any possibility this file can still be saved?

Sorry but at 18K it means that there is basically nothing in the file. Do you have some other backup file? Seems like you backed up to OneDrive the damaged file. This is an extremely rare occurrence as CmapTools saves to a tmp file and only replaces the Cmap if the save was successful.
