S 8 file has been damaged

Created at
in Community support

I has been wroking on my project this morning (last saving was 2 days ago). This afternoon when I was trying to open it, it doesn't work and I get as a message opening error :
Model is not a SIMUL8 file or has been damaged
Try opening a back up (.Bk 8) file

My question, how can I get back my model, How can I open change bk8 file to S8 one??

Any idea could be helpful for me!!!

Thank you all

    First, make a copy of the .BK8 file, and rename it.

    Then, take on of the .BK8 files, and simply rename the extension from .BK8 to .S8. This will allow you to open it in SIMUL8.

    If that fails, you should send a copy of all files to <EMAIL email="support@SIMUL8.com">support@SIMUL8.com</EMAIL>
