Error reading your Preferences files

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

This message means that Q++Studio encountered an error, at startup, trying to read your preferences files. Each user has 2 preferences files, both located in the c:\qpp\ directory : Q++Studio.Ini and Q++Ini.DB.


Q++Studio.INI is used to store text and integer preferences; startup options, default paths, etc… To see if it is the cause of the message, close Q++Studio, rename the file Q++Studio.INI into Q++Studio.IN_ and relaunch Q++Studio. If all goes well, then Q++Studio.INI was corrupted and Q++Studio will rebuild a new Q++Studio.INI file as you ste your preferences over again.


Q++Ini.DB is used to store binary format preferences (default MiniCal options, for example). To see if it is the cause of this message, close Q++Studio and copy the files Q++Ini.DB and Q++Ini.VAL into Q++Ini.DB_ and Q++Ini.VA_ . Then copy the same 2 files from the PC of another user (one who has had no such message) to your PC and launch Q++Studio. If all goes well then keep these 2 files and recreate your preferences.


If you do not feel comfortable with the above manipulations, make sure your Administrator helps you.
