Error opening Model in Bizagi Modeler: it is being used


When a diagram is created and saved as a Bizagi Collaboration Model on premise, Bizagi Modeler creates a .bpmc file, along with a folder with the same name.
For example, myprocess.bpmc has the folder myprocess. When moving or copying the file, it is necessary to move also the folder.

Applies to

Bizagi Modeler, all versions


When a user tries to open a Bizagi Collaboration Model (.bpmc) file, the following error is displayed:
Error loading the model because it is being used


The error is caused because users have moved or copied only the .bpmc file without moving the folder as well. The Bizagi Collaboration Model requires the folder named as the file for internal purposes.


Move the folder from the original location to the new desired path.
