Problem Description

Embedded RAM Concept files within Ram Structural System models were being deleted during file conversion from v14.05 to 14.06. 


The problem was resolved in v14.06.01 and thereafter.

Users who are running v14.06.00 can work around the problem by doing the following:

1. Open the file in v14.06 and convert the file to the new version format.

2. Open Windows Explorer and find the .zip file with "Orig v14.5" at the end of the file name that is automatically created during the conversion process. Double click on the file. Find the embedded .cpt files. The file name will be same as ram model with .cpt###E at the end. Copy the files to the clipboard.

3. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the working directory (C:\Program Data\Bentley\Engineering\RAM Structural
System\Data\Working). Paste the embedded .cpt files from the v14.5 backup into this folder.

4. Launch RAM Concept from RAM Manager.
