v14 - attempt to access an unnamed file past its end.

I am trying to open a Mathcad v14 file that I have been working on for the past 2 weeks.  While I was working today, it suddenly got a runtime error  (sadly is not that uncommon but at the moment has only been inconvenient - I just save often).  I went to re-open the file and got this errror:

An attempt was made to access an unnamed file past its end.

When this pops up it only gives me the option to click OK and then nothing happens.  I can try to open it again but the same error pops up.

Did some googling and this is a problem not just limited to Mathcad, but basically every windows program.  I was wondering if all my work was lost or if there was a way to recover the file.


RE: v14 - attempt to access an unnamed file past its end.

IN my opinion you can't do anything because this error is ugly
