Error reading setup initialization file

Post by MarkD » Thu Apr 03, 2014 7:08 pm

I'm attempting to run PicoLog_r5_23_0.exe, downloaded from PicoTech, on a Windows XP machine in which I do have administrator privilege and I'm getting an "Error reading setup initialization file" error dialog. Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks.

Hi MarkD,

Your settings file may have become corrupted - you will need to delete it (create a backup first).

Please navigate to:

C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Pico Technology\

You may need to enable the option to view hidden files and folders in Windows.

Find the folder with the long alphanumeric name containing the plw.ini and Recorder.pls files, create a backup and delete them.

Next, restart PicoLog.

Hope this helps.
