I’ve recently been getting an occasional error while trying to save files. It’s been happening every couple days or so, the error message says that it has failed because “The temporary file could not be renamed”. If I try to save it a second time it gives me the typical read-only dialog like if you open the same file twice and try to save the second one. I then have to ‘save as’ and use a different file name. (Incremental save works pretty quickly for this)
If I browse to the directory in windows the .tmp file is there along side the original file and I can delete it. The other original file can’t be deleted until the Rhino session is closed. It gives a file in use error from windows saying it is open in compute.geometry even though that file has been saved with a different name and therefore should no longer be in use.
A couple notes for what they’re worth:
-These files are using sharepoint. Although sharepoint sucks, it doesn’t really seem like it’s at the heart of the issue.
-Grasshopper… I’m using a few sizable definitions (500-1500 components) that were originally created in V5, then updated for V6 and again in V7. I wonder if these were re-built from the ground up in the current version of GH if that would help any, if they weren’t so huge I would have tried that already. I’ve been having a bunch of Rhino UI problems that I’m still trying to isolate & replicate that I believe only happen while using these GH definitions. This is really a separate topic which I will start once I have a better understanding of what’s actually going on, I just thought I’d mention it.
-I’m using the latest service release 7.4 but this may have been happening in 7.3, I wasn’t on that version for very long. I don’t recall it ever happening before that.
-GH plugins being used are Human, Human UI, FabTools, Elefront, Mallard and Bowerbird. There are a bunch more plugins installed/loaded but I’m fairly certain those listed are the only ones with components that are actively being used.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
