Cannot open an analysis

Thorsten Haarmann

Recommended Posts

Dear community,

I still use Spotfire v6.5.

Unfortunately I cannot open an analysis I have created with the same version. You find the error message below. What can I do to identify what went wrong and to avoid such errors in the future (besides upgrading the version) It was quite a lot of work to create this one.

Best regards

Hi Thorsten,

Is the file saved in the library or locally on disc

If saved in library, could you test the followingsteps to download the file from Library and test the behavior.


Open Spotfire Client

Go to Tools > Library Administration

Select the File and export

Go to tss6.5.xtomcatapplication-datalibrary

Extract the filename.part0.zip folder

In that folder there should be a file with GUID as a name

Rename that file to your Filename.dxp

Open the file in Spotfire Client.


Kind regards
