vsd file damaged

Discussion in 'Visio Archive' started by Roberto Carcione, May 25, 2005.

  1. Hi at all,

    i worked with Visio 2002 on two files (vsd files). At a certain moment the
    power suplly was down and my computer was down too. After i execution again
    Visio 2002 and i tried to re-open my two files but Visio said me:
    "An error (100) occurred during the action Open Saved File."
    "Visio cannot open the file because it's not a visio file."

    I already to follow the istruction on:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;305168
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/826418/

    but without result.

    i have also downloaded and execute the q278261.exe (also if for Visio 2000)
    but without result...

    What can i do to repair my vcd files?
    Is there a tool or an visio's option to repair my vcd files (like Microsoft
    Access repair database oprtion)?

    thanks

  2. Not usually good news!
    Is there a hidden Visio lock file in the same folder? If so, quickly copy
    it and rename it as a Visio file, then try opening that.

  4. I believe so. The sp in Visio 2002 addressed this issue, but it had to be
    installed prior to the disaster.
