Nightmare Redux, can't compile update file on win 10

Post by Julian » Sun Dec 23, 2018 12:57 pm

SInce I can't post in Nightmare redux, I wanted to post here.

When I try to compile an update file or blank update file, I get an error instantly.

So I can't.


Help?

is wg running when you try to compile? if wg is running the db file is most likely being held in memory, does it tell you what error is???
try rebooting comp a file could be stuck in memory.

As bloodrock is saying, you need to provide way more information. It's like saying, "My TV won't turn on. What's the problem?"

Ok, so I run Nightmare 1.8.1 and the previous version until I upgraded.

I go to TOOLS -> Compile update file..


ERROR CREATING UPDATE FILE: Invalid Location (11)


GO TO FILE --> SETTINGS AND SET YOUR DEFAULT DAT FILE PATH AND CALL LETTERS.

--------------

Directory: c:\wgserv
v1.11p
cc
bottom

nothing else is checked.

I'm running psql.

ok did you highlite c:\wgserv in datfile path is box to the right showing wcc files.
i do not use psql so not sure what that does to the files.
clearly nmr is not finding the files needed to update so either the psql has done something to the files or you didn't do what you need to do for datfile path
which should be c: then below that do choosing wgserv folder that then to right will list wcc files
giving the new info you gave does help alot never be fague when posting. all info is important.
