“Unhandled exception has occurred in your application.  If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.  If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.”

I received the above — rather intimidating — error message upon opening Presentation Studio in PortfolioCenter and attempting to edit a presentation.

Clicking continue crashed PortfolioCenter.  Clicking Quit closed Presentation Studio.

What had I done wrong?

I created a new Presentation and named it after the first report in it.

I received no warnings or alarms at the time I created the new presentation. It wasn’t until the first time I attempted to use the Presentation that I discovered the problem.

The only solution was to restore my latest backup and start over.  Fortunately, I make daily backups this “nuclear option” created little distress.

Moral: Be careful what you name new Presentations.
