Printer Label Path
« on: Mar 02, 2023, 13:45:49 PM »
Does someone know which file is holding the Error path for Labels?
I looked in MAP.ini and Print.ini and a few others.
This is has been bugging me for a long time and now I'm getting back into searching and deleting this old path.

have you checked your reports folder?  the LBL, NZN, and WZN files are in there.

Could it be your configuration is looking for the wrong folder?

C:\Autodesk Fabrication\Working Database\REPORTS would then have CAMduct looking at

C:\Autodesk Fabrication\Working Database\REPORTS\CAMduct for label information.

What I did was did a search for *.LBL and yes they were in the Report Folder so I went and hit the load and Loaded the 9square that was in screen shot. No More Message.

What still boggles me is that old path that was displaying and where it was reading it from, Andy/MAP most have the path built into the *.lbl files is all I can gather.

Have you tried to watch what happens to that file in File Explorer while modifying the label in CAD/CAM/EST?  Sometimes that will give you an idea of where things are stored.

Labels reference Layouts.  That file name changes depending on the type of label.

Nest Labels  = *.SZN
Part Labels = *.LZN
Straight Labels = *.DZN
Turning Vane Labels = *.VZN
Oversized Labels = *.OZN
Item Labels = *.IZN

Click the "Load" button on the "layout" section in the lower right and you'll see where it's looking for those layouts.

Not positive but the Label itself may story the entire path if the layouts aren't in the same folder as the rest of the report/label files as configured in MAP.INI.

I know most reports stored the image path...at least at one time. There was a trick to getting them to be "relative" but it was a extra work and not how it worked default.

So I'm guessing the Label report is having issues getting the layout file.  Or perhaps something on the label that's pointing to a path like an image, etc.

Thanks Daren, ksperop37 and Jona

That Path with the screen shot is from a Database that I have been using and the Path displayed to the label is I bet 15yrs or so old. I can only guess but it must be held in the *.LBL I searched in every readable file that wasn't MAP Compressed.

(Had to edit and thank all of you! ) :)

What racks my brain is yes can click LOAD and go to Path MIS/CADmep and go to that 9square.LBL. (Problem solved moving on)

Just not sure where it pulling that old path in error message. Not a Big Deal just curious has hell. That Path is from a setup I did 15 plus yrs ago and most likely created that label on the server (G:)

Attached screen shot I used Notepad++  UTF-8 encoding to view *.LBL

Course that is todays Path not the old error one
