Can't open files in 2.0.3 (Buffer_convertLyxFormat.hXXXX is not a readable Lyx Document)

2012-04-23 Thread John Enright
Since upgrading to 2.0.3, Many of my files will not open. I get an error message
during the open operation saying:

C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Local\Temp\lyx_tmpdir.p10476
\Buffer_convertLyxFormat.h is not a readable LyX document.

The temp directory exits (as specified in the message); the temp file is
zero-bytes long.

- I'm running Win7 (x64). My MikTex is up to date. I've reinstalled LyX several
times (including uninstalling it). No difference. 

- Some old files will open. But many will not. Not sure of what is special about
the affected files. Perhaps some particular floats, but I can't seem to
replicate the problem with a new file.

- I can create and reopen a completely new file. 

- The affected files are not corrupted, since they open just fine in LyX 1.6.X
that I still had installed. 

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

John

Sounds like some sort of lyx2lyx conversion error. If you can run LyX
from a terminal, you should get more error messages, though that won't
solve the problem by itself. So, alternatively, try posting one of the
problematic files here, or sending it to me privately, if you prefer,
and we can try to figure it out.

Is there some magic to get the debug output from the command line? I run:

lyx -dbg

or

lyx -dbg graphics

and get no additional output. Is this logged to a file somewhere?

BTW, I have verified that I can make the problem disappear by rolling 
back to 2.0.2 (well, uninstalling 2.0.3, and then installing 2.0.2).
