Procedure Won't Open if Stage is Renamed with Certain Characters and Icon is Changed

Last edited: 31 Aug 2005

The information in this article applies to product: e-Work 6.6.1 6.6.2


  • A stage in a map is renamed to contain a question mark, the icon for the stage is changed, and the procedure is saved as an XEP file. When trying to open the file, an error message similar to the following is generated by the Designer:

    The content of this file is not a valid e-Work procedure or library
    The original error message was "Failed to read process:Failed to read activity First stage?:Cannot create file C:\DOCUME~1\jlsmith\LOCALS~1\Temp\TestProcFirstStage?.jpg"


  • Do not use illegal Windows filename characters in an e-Work stage name. These are / \ : * ? " < > |

Post an example, and we will have a much better idea what the problem is. In about 90% of posts, the problem is one of communication. Examples bridge that gap.
