    Dynamo 2.0 stability

    Dynamo 2.0 has not been stable for me. Often I cannot open graphs I have previously worked on (crashes entire application). What gotchas am I missing? What can I do differently so my graphs are not disposable?

    Didn't experience that so far. Are you on the daily build or the last stable one?

    I had some problems when I installed into the same Program Files/ folder as 1.3. Installed to a new folder for 2.0+ and both versions are working fine in parallel.
    Also had some definitions crash on opening, because of old custom nodes in them that didnt work. Make sure you set your package location for 2.0 to a new folder (Instead of pointing to the old 1.3 location) and install the latest packages. Then it should just tell you a package is outdated instead of crashing.
    If you still cant open them in 2.0, then open in an older version of dynamo and strip out anything that is not Dynamo standard nodes (You will have to do this anyway with many nodes for 2.0). Then they should open ok and you can repair them.

    For this reason I like to cut and paste the python code from custom nodes into a Python From String in the definition itself
    (Also means I learn something by using the python directly..)

    I would also add that I place my Dynamo graphs in two separate folders, 1.3 and 2.0. Once, they are upgraded, I do not believe that they can go back down. So, if you want a graph back in 1.3 for Revit 2016, then you are out of luck after it has been upgraded.

    Thanks, all. I don't think I was diligent enough in separating content by version. I'm separating my 1.3 and 2.0 content and completely rebuilding the 2.0 content. I'm opening a graph and then working through the custom nodes, rebuilding those and saving them to a different directory, then replacing the old custom nodes with the new 2.0 versions in all cases.

    Pretty much what i did except tht i had to keep the 1.3
    Lot's of work but if you use DesignScript a lot don't forget to use Notepad++ to change them quickly
