    How can I open my saved Paint 3D projects?


    Suddenly today, all my saved projects have disappeared from "OPEN" menu screen.
    How can I open my saved projects?

    I can open only their thumbnails from %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MSPaint_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\Projects.

    Could someone please help me?
    Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Paint 3D Projects not Appearing

    Hi,

    The location that you've provided is the default file storage for Paint 3D. For us to provide the best resolution possible, we'll be needing additional information:

    • Have you tried browsing on the default file storage and open the project files in Open menu? If yes, what happens when opening the project files?
    • What do you mean about project.json does not point to any of the projects?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you run the Windows apps troubleshooter as an initial troubleshooting step and check if the project files are visible in the Open menu. You can also try browsing the project files in the Open menu after running the troubleshooter.
    For your reference, check this article on how to run the troubleshooter for Windows apps.

    We'll be waiting to your reply.

    Paint 3D Projects not Appearing

    Hey Gerard,

    Thanks for getting back to me. Here's where I'm at:

    We suggest that you run the Windows apps troubleshooter as an initial troubleshooting step and check if the project files are visible in the Open menu. You can also try browsing the project files in the Open menu after
    running the troubleshooter.

    I have ran the troubleshooter which completed a reset and opening of the windows store. It listed the issue of "Windows Store cache may be damaged" as being fixed. When I repoen and rerun the troubleshooter, it continues to find and "fix" the same issue
    each time shown in Figure 1.

    Figure 1: Windows Store Troubleshooter

    I have tried to open the files through the open dialog in Paint 3D. The problem that I am seeing is that Paint 3D projects don't seem to have a master file that Paint 3D itself can recognize. In each project there is at most a thumbnail
    and several .bin type files which cannot be opened from Paint 3D as in Figures 2 and 3

    Figure
    3: The same project directory from Figure 2, but from the Open dialog.

    Sorry for being vague. After the data loss, I created two new projects,
    radda and radda2 to see if they would be identified in the open screen. They were, and this is the current projects.JSON file in the Paint 3D directory:

    [{"Id":"{755cfc74-87ba-474b-9882-c221017bbbaa}","SourceId":"","Name":"Untitled","URI":"","DateTime":1.3162058946403906E+17,"Path":"Projects\\Untitled","SourceFilePath":"","Version":0.21,"IsRecovered":false,"IsPreviouslySaved":false},{"Id":"{d0ed6c56-dbe1-4136-88dc-9dd2496dd535}","SourceId":"","Name":"radda2","URI":"ms-appdata:///local/Projects/Untitled
    (39)/Thumbnail.png","DateTime":1.316189481089825E+17,"Path":"Projects\\Untitled (39)","SourceFilePath":"","Version":0.21,"IsRecovered":false,"IsPreviouslySaved":true},{"Id":"{1c0fc511-8370-4c2e-a882-a776daa73b6d}","SourceId":"","Name":"radda","URI":"ms-appdata:///local/Projects/Untitled
    (37)/Thumbnail.png","DateTime":1.3161894802891816E+17,"Path":"Projects\\Untitled (37)","SourceFilePath":"","Version":0.21,"IsRecovered":false,"IsPreviouslySaved":true}]

    While it's kind of a mess in that form, you can see clear references to radda and radda2, while none of the other projects are referenced at all except for a project named "Untitled" which doesn't exist
    in the open screen. This is what I meant by projects.JSON not pointing to the old projects.

    Thank you for taking the time to sort through this. Let me know if there is any more information I can offer.

    -Alex

    3D Paint: Can't open saved projects

    Tonight I spent several hours making a project in paint 3D as a friends birthday gift. I saved it several times along the way and after taking a single screenshot I closed it, planning to finish it later. Minutes later, I opened it again
    to take more pictures and in about 30 seconds I recieved the error "Can't open that file: Something went wrong." I can see the preview for the files but none actually open. I've researched online but I can't find any real answers. I tested several files and
    even a flat single color image cannot be opened. I really hope I can open the file at least one more time so i can give the gift to my friend.

    Important Info:

    • The issue occurred tonight (8/30/2017)
    • I cannot open even the simplest paint 3d file.
    • I ran the troubleshooter for Windows
      apps
    • I tried to save the files located in appdata (so that I could reinstall) but am unable.
    Thank you so much in advance.
