This is a miscommunication between the Mac side and the Windows side, where the model is saved to a directory on a Mac that is saving the files to the cloud, and removes it from the computer to save space.

Please follow the steps below:
  1. Start ProcessModel using the Windows Start menu (not by clicking on the model)
  2. Once ProcessModel is open: Click the open icon processmodel open button, or click File \ Open
  3. Find the file you need to open
  4. Select the file, click Open.

For Mac computers, please make sure that you open you models using the steps above.
