When trying to use ArtiosCAD, a non-descriptive SQL error message "#4" states that the "Database is not found".

Other issues could be that ArtiosCAD is extremely slow to respond or start.


None of the database functions work, SQL seems to be frozen or very slow to respond to a request in ArtiosCAD or even SQL Studio.


Please check the ArtiosCAD directory structure, starting with \Esko or \Artios, for compressed files (normally showing in a blue color). 

ArtiosCAD will not be able to operate with any ArtiosCAD application, database or other associated files when the files are compressed.
