I have a problem with a file I saved in ViaCAD 9.0 at the last session.
When I try to open it, there appeares a message, the file is damaged.

"This file is damaged! Cannot read into application.
File position: 1632251
File size: 1632251
Filename: xyz.vc3"

Is there a chance to rescue the file?

I opened the file in a texteditor. At the end there is the Word "SUCCESS".

Could anybody help me? It took a few hours to create the file.

Sorry for the negative message, but this is an issue with SharkCAD also. File is probably lost.
A tip is to regularly do incremental save a copy under new name on any file you work on as well as have the backup feature turned on. E.g. add date and version to your filename like "filename 240112-1..." and so on.
A "benefit" with this software is that you thus end up with GB of data for files. For you own safety also save a few of the various file versions to your backup..
