For questions about using Classic.

Post » Thu Jul 24, 2008 8:49 pm

Error with loading: expecting class (CObj), but recieved (liesGroups)

^ Error

** It also f****** up backups and another cap.

How it happened :

1) Had some stuff in a container
2) Had some variables in the container's main object
3) Changed variables a bit
4) Accidentally deleted a containership (from properties tab, where you select what objects are part of the container)
5) Pressed ctrl-z furiously to retrieve it
6) Crash
7) Cap nuke, backup nuke and another cap (made before and saved with another filename) nuke.

I have solution for this:
*Don't open .cap files with "Recent Documents" - Since I don't open .cap files with "Recent Documents", I don't have problems with this ;)
*Do backups (manually) of .cap files

These bugs are really difficult to fix. To help get to the bottom of this, reproducability is absolutely essential. If anybody can reliably reproduce a save error, that would help us immeasurably. SuperV, can you reproduce this with your own steps?

I think I found the problem. This bug only happened when I used Groups. I don't know the exact steps, but it never happened when I wasn't using groups (proofs:)

* I once added a group to a non-group cap to organize it and it gave same error.
* The error I posted is about groups.
