[bug-14641]Error reading updated project from Gateway

#1

Hi,

I recently upgraded to 8.0.2 from Ignition 7.9.11 and am having this issue any time I try to save any project settings. I have tried doing a fresh install but this has not helped. The gateway is running windows 10. Any ideas what I can do to fix this problem?

Can you take a look in the <install directory/data/projects/ folder? Specifically, depending on how many projects you have, at whichever project you’re trying to load in the designer when that happens? And maybe upload a screenshot of that projects’ directory structure?

Or, just send in your 7.9 gateway backup to support - it looks like the code is erroring due to a method we added to try and keep designer state consistent. Reference case #14641 - even if you aren’t able to send in your info, we should be able to back into this with the stack trace and get it fixed.

Hi Paul, I am seeing something similar when trying to save some of my projects:

Actually, the error only comes up after I have saved a project after re-configuring auto-login (all projects that previously had auto-login configured seemed to have lost those project properties due to the upgrade)

This issue is caused by the strange looking directories with “…renamed…” in the name. A quick manual fix would be to close any open Designers, cut and paste the resources.json and data.bin files from the inner to the outer folder (e.g. from 1)_renamed1 into launch-properties), then delete the inner folder. You should then have your old login properties from before the project conversion from 7.x to 8.0.

This is a case of a weird resource name not being handled on upgrade; we’re looking into preventing this in the next release.

I just wanted to give a quick update. I was able to get around this issue by creating a copy of my project and working from the copy.
I will verify the folder structure when I am able to access the system again later this week.

This issue was fixed in the 8.0.4 nightly build that was uploaded yesterday (8/13).

Just as some extra clarification if your project has been upgraded from 7.9.x to 8.0.x before these changes and you end up with those oddly named folders inside the project, the designer will still throw the original error. It’s just that after these changes, those folders should no longer be created while upgrading or restoring gateway backups from 7.9.
