EM Viewer Will Not Run

Question asked by splatt on Oct 31, 2003
For GENESYS 2003.03, some users recieve an error when trying to run the EM Viewer. To fix this problem follow these instructions:

You can download the attachment at the bottom post, unzip it, and run the ViewerFix.bat file or you can follow these steps.


STEP 1. Right click on start and click explore. This should bring up windows explorer. Find the Windows directory and open it. Within the Windows directory find EagleWin.ini. Open this file using notepad.

It should look something like this:

[Directories]
EaglewareDefault2003=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003


at the end of it there is supposed to be another line that should read.


EaglewareDefaultV8.0=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\ViewerFix



Create it and make this the third line. So your file should now look like this:

[Directories]
EaglewareDefault2003=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003EaglewareDefaultV8.0=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\ViewerFix



Save this and close it.


STEP 2. Return to windows Explorer and click on Program Files. To the right
you should see the contents of Program Files. Find the GENESYS2003 folder and open it. Right-click somewhere in the
window and click new/folder and name the folder ViewerFix.

STEP 3. Make sure that you are in the GENESYS2003 folder. Find a folder that says License. Right-click on that folder and copy it. Paste it
in the new folder that you created called ViewerFix. Go back to the GENESYS2003 folder and find a file called Default.eg$. Copy this file and paste it into the new ViewerFix folder.

STEP 4. Open the new ViewerFix folder and open Default.eg$ using notepad. It looks like

[Default]
VERSION=506
TEMPPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Temp
DISK= C
CWD=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Examples
SDATA=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\SDATA
PROTO=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\BIN\\PROTO
MACHINETYPE=1
FONTPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Font
LIBPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Lib
MODELPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Model
LICENSEPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\License
LICENSEEXPIREDAYS=37


STEP 5. Delete the first line that says "[Default]". Also on the fourth line delete the extra
space between DISK= and C. It should now read DISK=C. Your new file should look like:

VERSION=506
TEMPPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Temp
DISK=C
CWD=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Examples
SDATA=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\SDATA
PROTO=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\BIN\\PROTO
MACHINETYPE=1
FONTPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Font
LIBPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Lib
MODELPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\Model
LICENSEPATH=C:\\Program Files\\GENESYS2003\\License
LICENSEEXPIREDAYS=37

make sure that VERSION=506 is at the very top of the file. Save it and close. Everything should now work fine.
