Corrupted File: Cannot read Plan file ERROR



Hey guys.

Im trying to open a important proyect and Archicad shows the messeage ''Cannot read Plan file''. 

I already tried the ''open and repair'' tool but it doesn't work. Also tried to opened on different computers and different Archicad versions but it doesnt work too. The backup and the original file shows the same messages.


Also read that to use the open and repair tool Archicad needs to be on the same version as the one that the file was created


Does anyone have the same issue or any one know how can I recover my work?

You seem to be using Archicad 24.

Are you by any chance trying to open an Archicad 25 file?

That will give you that message.
