wizard ruleset file error

Last post

All my prior wizard project files only open in detailed mode. I then change
the mode to detailed and save them. Then when I attempt to open them I get
the following error (and the project refuses to open). Any ideas what is
going on? I even reinstalled eQUEST and that did not help.

Oops, I meant to state

". I then change the mode to wizard and save them."

All,
I am getting the same error when I open and tried to run my wizard models. I also got these errors as well when I click finish in the wizard mode.
Any idea on how to get around this????

I have gotten the invalid argument before. Closing eQuest and rebooting
my computer has solved the problem.

I have not had an issue opening things or getting any errors this morning. Closing equest and rebooting seems to solve it! Thanks Rick!

I get it occasionally and exiting eQUEST and re-launching seems to work.

I've seen other posts suggesting to run the program in Windows XP service pack 3 compatibility mode (right click the executable file, select properties, then compatibility). I'm running wonderful Vista at work and I only have the option for service pack 2.

Anyway, see if that helps.

Ah-ha! Did you have a beer last night?

I usually find walking away from a problem, kicking back, and indulging in a cold one helps to solve a lot of things in life =).

Christian, if you're still struggling and a reboot/beer don't help the situation (can't hurt!) you might try sharing one of your problem projects' files to see if others can successfully get into wizards under different operating systems and so forth.

If it only happened with one project, I'd guess the behavior you're experiencing could mean something is awry specifically with the *.PD2 file containing the user's wizard inputs, if the project behaves nicely otherwise in detailed mode. However if the same problem happening with all your projects - that sounds much more like an issue with your equest installation or some kind of operating system compatibility setting issue.

Regards,

Christian,

Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\eQUEST 3-64, -----> select "compatibility" tab
------> select Windows XP Service pak 3 ------> check " Run this program in
compatibility mode for".
This will fix your issue for sure.

Hope it helps.

Thanks
