Yes, the .mcp file generated by mplab has several stages during savings. At
the very first stage, when a new mcp file is created it look like this:
(67kb)
[HEADER]
magic_cookie={66E99B07-E706-4689-9E80-9B2582898A13}
fil


After saving the project without close the workspace, it looks like this:
(517kb)
magic_cookie={66E99B07-E706-4689-9E80-9B2582898A13}
file_version=0.9
[PATH_INFO]
dir_src=
dir_out=
dir_tmp=
dir_sin=
dir_inc=
dir_lib=
dir_lkr=
[CAT_FILTERS]
filter_src=*.asm
filter_inc=*.h;*.inc
filter_obj=*.o
filter_lib=*.lib
filter_lkr=*.lkr
[FILE_INFO]
file_000=96-72.asm
[SUITE_INFO]
suite_guid={6B3DAA78-59C1-46DD-B6AA-DBDAE4E06484}
suite_state=
[TOOL_SETTINGS]
TS{DD2213A8-6310-47B1-8376-9430CDFC013F}=
TS{BFD27FBA-4A02-4C0E-A5E5-B812F3E7707C}=/o"$(TARGETBASE).cof"


In order to rescue a "project" we have to distinguish between Workspace
file and Project file.
The project file seems to have the cookie and files paths.
A possible solution may be:
1.- delete the .mcp file
2.- open the workspace disregarding the missing file
3.- generate another project by clicking Project/new and adding the .asm
.cod etc files again.

With this method you don't have to re-create, stimulus, debugging
stopwatch, watch windows, selected device, programmer, debugger tool,
ufffff, practically all your debugging work.

Regards,
Dennis.

Umm... I don't quite agree with that.
Firstly, yes, the *.mcp file saves as you say, however, on my machine it
never gets above 1kB long.
The *mcw file does though - it is 29Kb on my present project.
Secondly, it's not a short simple matter to setup the project again, I
find that ALL the settings have to be gone through.
Thirdly, why are we doing this?  Why doesn't it work?
I apologise that I don't have the know-how to figure it out, to fix it,
or even to find out what's wrong.  I suspect (note suspect - I really
don't know!) MicroChip is just not saving files as per every other darn
program on the planet.
Surely, if I command  "Save" it should do just that.  And why does the
cookie problem seem to be cropping up so many times, but MicroChip say
they cannot duplicate it.
That's fine, I suppose - bit hard to fix something which they cannot
see, but I assure them the problem is there!
