Book does not recognize TOC

I am working with translated files. After the files returned from translation, the book no longer recognizes the TOC. I need to fix this error without re-creating the TOC.


In the book structure, I noticed two things about the TOC file:

1. Its icon is orange.

2. A path appears along with the filename: "..\FM 10\.fm"


I verified the TOC exists in the same location as the other book files. I can also open the TOC outside of the book, with no errors.


I am using FrameMaker 10 on Windows 7. Thanks!

    Usual hack:


    1. Rename the legacy TOC file temporarily.
    2. Have FM create a new one.
    3. Delete it (the new one) with the system file manager (not from FM).
    4. Rename the old one to the same name as the new one.
