Mach Screen Designer error
« on: May 30, 2017, 03:13:43 PM »
This happened last year but I can't recall how I solved it!

MachScreen designer now freezes when loading my screenset.  No changes have been made to the screenset and it views
OK when running Mach3 but when I try to edit it in MachScreen Designer, it only shows the Properties window, not the
main designer window.

I can only close the program using the Task manager and 'End Task'.

Any ideas?

Hi Keith,

one reason, the screenset file gets corrupted is when editing a script within Mach3 and saving it after MachScreen was terminated. If MachScreen shows only the property dialog you can try the following:

to investigate that issue, it would be very helpful, if you would:

Run Regedit.exe
Export  the following key:      HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\KD-Soft\MachScreen
Make sure, the file ending is txt
Send me that file per Email


To get MachScreen in normal mode again:
Terminate MachScreen
Press the Shift key and hold it down
Start MachScreen
Keep the Shift key down until MachScreen shows up.

Regards

Hi, Klaus and Keith.
I have the same problem, but I can't solve the problem as Klaus says.
Only appears a property window and other that say ''Warning, File Corrupted''.
Could you help me? please

Hello,

the warning "file corrupted" is thrown, if Machscreen has loaded the sceenset and the end of file isn't reached yet. To fix that, you can load the screenset, make at least one change to the screenset and save it. This warning can be switched off in the settings dialog "Don't show warning 'File corrupted'.
