I have an application with Mapwingis which suddenly appears to have one of it's shapefiles corrupted, that to say each files shp, shx, dbf filled with "00"'. I wonder how this could happen and would appreciate any idea.

Hi Olivier,

This is completely new to me.
Can you reproduce this behavior?
Which version of MapWinGIS are you using?

Hi Paul,

One of my guess is that the reason could be because I used two axmap pointing to the same shapefile. I remember you told me it was not a good idea but at the time, I was not skilled enough to replace the second synchronized map with a screen copy.

If this was the reason, I'm still wondering how shp/dbf/shx could be simultaneously all filled with "00". I will appreciate your point of view if you think it could be possible. Having now modified with a screen copy, I'll let you know if the issue is still there.
