Bad INI file load error
« on: May 01, 2017, 03:15:50 PM »
Shop just updated to the 2018v this morning. Opening the D6 downloader prompts the error "Warning Bad INI file load-Possible loss of settings". Idea of what we are missing?

Could be any number of things, included not at all being related to the 2018 update.

There's not much in the way of settings....do you have them written down or screen cap'd?

Should be fairly simple to update.

Where is your database/map.ini located? IF I recall correctly, the D6 puts it's INI in the same folder. IF you have a local MAP.INI and the path is different for 2018, it just may not be able to find the INI for your prior setup. IF that's the case, you should be able to just copy it to the new location.

The D6INI was copied to the new location/configuration. Updating the settings did not work as some options are now greyed out. This prevents us from matching the previous settings. Any changes made are not saved, and revert back upon re-opening the downloader.

Just in case someone else runs into this.......
So it seems this is a known issue, and developers are working on a solution. The work around for the mean time is to use the 2017 downloader and repath to the 2018 CNC folder (If you have 2017 installed). Also they have a work around if you don't or never had 2017 installed. Haven't tried this yet tho......

Open it with your browser, save the .txt,  then change to .exe.

It seems to only find the 2017 software and not picking up 2018
