PI 3 Freezes trying to open an emitter library
on Apr 28, 2013 at 8:00:57 pm

When I tried loading an emitter library (using Windows 7), PI 3.0 freezes. The library is 90,877 KB in size; is that to large or something? (It use to open just fine).

Check your Library Backups folder, and try loading an older version of that same file. If it used to load fine, some change you made probably corrupted it. I'd start with the most recent backup and go backward from there. Once you find one that loads, I'd be interested to hear what you changed since then.

Also, what exact version of pI3 are you using?

Alan.

Version 3.0.4.3

Loaded a previous backup and it worked.

I have no idea what changes I made to cause the later version of the file to crash the program.

Are the two versions much different in size?

The older one that works is 88,034 kb and the one that doesn't is 90,877 kb. I obviously added some emitters (extracted from some of the free downloads), but I don't know which ones.
