45. FIXING TOOLBAR AND LAYER MANAGER ISSUES

Post by jovivier »

Sometimes IRRICAD toolbars will no longer dock correctly or the Layer Manager does not display despite being enabled in the View menu. Issues similar to these can often be fixed by re-creating the configuration file.

To re-generate the configuration file for Pro Version 12+:-

1. Close IRRICAD.

2. Using "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer" browse to the Irricad “\Config” folder (typically C:\Program Files\AEI Software\Irricad Pro 12\Config or later version folder).

3. Rename the Winicad.ini - for example to WinicadOld.ini. It is best not to delete this file just in case it is not corrupted and you would like to retain your current set of personalised settings.

4. Restart IRRICAD.

(To see the file extension follow the steps in the forum post https://www.irricad.com/phpbb3/viewtopi ... 1422#p1422).

Note the content and location of the toolbars will be reset to the installation defaults so you will need to redo any customisation.

Tip: Take a copy of the .ini file as soon as the toolbars have been customised and save it to a different location. Then if you need to recreate the .ini file at a later date simply save the copy back to the config folder and overwrite the corrupt file.

Similar problems with the IRRICAD Database Editor and Curve Fit utility may be remedied by following steps 1-4 above but renaming “Irribase.ini” instead of “Winicad.ini”.

Note with older versions of IRRICAD (Version 8 to Pro Version 11) the Winicad.ini and Irribase.ini file is located in C:\Windows.
