### SW2006 SP05: Failed to open file

• Follow

Hi

I have a big problem when trying to open some of my files I get this
error message:

Failed to open file S:\path\to\file.....SLDASM It is already open for
read in a different session of Solidworks, or another application.

I have tried restoring my backup but the file still wont open. The funny
thing is that the file opens just fine from the backup location, just
wont open from the original location.

The problem started when I opened to drawing that use the same assembly
on two different computers. The files are stored on a mapped network drive.

Can anyone help me?

Check to make sure that you still don't have the temporary files in the
folder that you are opening the files from. Some times when Solidworks
fails to close or crashes it leaves the temporary files behind (these
are the ones with the ~ in the first part of the file). If you have
explorer set to not show hidden files, these won't show up. You have to
tell explorer to show the hidden files. Once SW is closed delete the
temp files and it should allow you to open them again.
