I was getting following Cognos framework error while opening the model.

BME-EX-0047 Unable to read preferences for the requested interface. Please use another repository and/or ProjectAccess Interface.

I got this error for framework 11.0 after we had a patching on windows.

I reinstalled the software in same path with same version and it worked.
None of the framework models were effected.
