View Full Version : Can't run NRD

June 21st, 2008, 09:18 AM
I just upgraded to the latest versions of NR (126) and designer (51). Now I can't start designer. NR runs with no problems but designer will not run. I get an error message while the splash screen is showing and then it will freeze and I have to kill the process.

This is from the log file:

Creating CoNetRemoteHelper
Creating CoNetRemote
Getting Namespace

Connecting to NetRemote object
There was an uncaught exception initializing the application
Det angivna argumentet hamnade utanför intervallet med giltiga värden.

vid com.promixis.Forms.NRIEditorForm..ctor(String filename)
vid com.promixis.Forms.NRIEditorForm.Main(String[] argv)

"Det angivna argumentet hamnade utanför intervallet med giltiga värden." translates into "The argument is out of bounds"

Hmm... that's very strange - can you try loading another CCF into NetRemote, then closing and restarting it. Then try NRD again.

I have tried five different ccf files including "Flatstyle Music and DM.ccf" and "mce_480x640.ccf".
I also tried different versions of designer (44, 45, 48, 51) and different versions of NR (124, 126). None of the combinations work. Same error and behavior.

When I think of it I'm not sure I have ever used designer on this computer before so I'm not sure if it has worked with previous versions.

I have Windows XP.

Any ideas?

Are you running Girder? It's possible that it's sending something that's confusing NRD.

Alternatively something may be interfering with COM access to NetRemote.

Another possibility given that you are using a non-English version of Windows is that there is something strange about the path to the temporary folder, e.g. non-ASCII characters.

I'm not running girder.

I tried to install NR and designer on my other computer and I get the same error. That computer is also running Swedish Windows XP.

I have been using NR and the designer version that worked with that NR version, before I upgraded to the latest versions of both, and back then there were no problem running designer.

Can you open a command window and type

set tmp


set temp

and see what it's reporting as the environment variables for these - I strongly suspect that at least one of them will be using non-ASCII characters

C:\>set tmp

C:\>set temp

The full path is:

C:\Documents and Settings\Peter Gustafsson\Lokala inställningar\Temp

So you are right, there is an swedish character in the path.

The solution is to create a C:\temp folder and use Control Panel\System to set the tmp and temp environment variables to use that folder.

The underlying cause of the problem is that NRD sends some Lua code to NR using one of those paths - but Lua can't cope with non-ASCII characters in filenames.

That did the trick.
Thanks :)
