Intermittent File Save Issues on Network

Intermittent File Save Issues on Network

We have a large number of installed users that use Mathcad 15 on a regular basis.  Just recently, a few have been noticing that selecting File|Save from the main menu is NOT saving the updates to their files.  You can imagine our concern.  It's intermittent and I cannot reproduce it myself on my desktop, but I'm hearing it from enough of our users that I think it's real.  It could very well be something to do with our environment and not be a Mathcad issue at all, but it is concerning. 

We're running Mathcad 15 M045 and one of the keys is that the attempted save it to a network drive, not a physical drive on the desktop machine.

Has anyone by any chance run across anything similar?

Thanks!

Yes, and I found where:

File Save Error (MC15).

The 'solution' may not be what you are looking for straight away, but it may be necessary...

Anyway, I hope it helps you.

Good luck!

Hi Jeff,

Never seen this issue. Users use the "floating" type of license (if so check "Borrowing" settings in the license server)? Because under certain settings the license can return to the server.

They use the "Autosave" option (with the correct location of the file)?

Re: Intermittent File Save Issues on Network

No license borrowing.  We have firmly tethered desktop machines.  License isn't dropping.   However, even if the license dropped, a message would pop up warning that the currently loaded files should be saved to disk.  This isn't happening.Mathcad is running properly and it "looks" like it is saving the file properly, but it's not actually updating the file.

Autosave is up to the users, but it has caused problems in the past so I believe most users run with it off.  I may have this user change his current autosave state and see if it helps.

Ok.

And PTC's tech support?
