Crash on load
There is a known bug in Archie-M 2.5 which causes Archie-M to write corrupted bridge files. The result is that when these files are later loaded, Archie-M will crash.
We are trying to track down the bug, but it is proving very difficult to locate. In the mean time, we have a program that can be used to fix corrupted files. This can be downloaded here: Archie2FileFix.exe
This is a command line executable.
- Save the .exe file next to the .brg files you wish to fix.
- Run the windows command prompt, and change to the folder containing .exe and .brg
- Type "Archie2FileFix.exe <bridge.brg>"
A new .brg file will be created alongside the original with the filename suffix -Fixed, so "bridge.brg" will become "bridge-Fixed.brg".
This article will be updated when a new version of Archie-M that fixes the bug is available.
