Topic-icon RoborunPlus v15-101015 suddenly fails to start

After many months of using Roborun+ with only nuisance problems, this afternoon it suddenly fails to start. This morning it was working fine. A screen shot of the error dialog is attached.



I have tried a repair, removal and re-installation, and complete shut down and restart of the PC (Win7-x64) all to no avail. If you have no suggestions, I will backup recent files and restore the HDD from an image made about a week ago, but a less cumbersome solution would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Lenny

Blake,

Thanks, this would seem to be far less cumbersome than restoring a disc from image + incremental updates. However, both WindowsExplorer and WinZip said that the archive is INVALID -- until I renamed it from .zip (not .ra_) to .rar! Off to copy and register strip.ocx.

Oh well, win some, lose some. There was already a strip.ocx file of the same size, but I replaced it with the freshly downloaded one and registered it. Roborun+, however, still fails to load AND GIVES THE SAME ERROR. HELP!
Ciao,
Lenny

No, copying and registering a fresh strip.ocx didn't work, and the link you just posted gives a 404 error. However, restoring my HDD from an image did bring back Roborun. When I tried to copy back all recently changed files in the User directory, however, the visual basic error came back again - so some file in there had been corrupted. I haven't tried to track that down any further, but again restored the image and copied back only recently changed document files. All OK now. (If I have some spare time, I will try to track it down further and let you know what, if anything, I find out.)

BTW, in order to keep working while all this was going on, I retrieved the beat up old lap top that normally resides between drill press and soldering station. This has been an annoyance, but I actually haven't lost much productive time.

Ciao,
Lennyh
