Recover a crashed FieldGenius project

Post by pdungey » Tue Jan 12, 2010 9:19 am

I have a FieldGenius project (Topo survey) which crashed and will no longer open. When I try, it ends up crashing windows as well.
We're using FieldGenius 2008 on a TDS Ranger.
I started a new project using the raw file from the original but this gives me the points with no linework.
Is there anyway to recover the linework as well? Ultimately, I'd like to get it into fbk format for import into Land Desktop.

zip up the bad file and email it to me for a look. doesn't sound tragic.

Problem solved. Rare crash that left the final record of the figure database incomplete. Filled in the blanks and opens fine.
