Launch Error on Windows XP

Postby dragonsoarer12 » Thu Nov 14, 2013 4:13

Hi, all! ^^

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this error.
I downloaded and installed the Orange 2.7 (full package).

Code: Select all
C:\Python27>python.exe -m Orange.OrangeCanvas.main

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Python27\lib\", line 162, in _run_module_as_main
    "__main__", fname, loader, pkg_name)
  File "C:\Python27\lib\", line 72, in _run_code
    exec code in run_globals
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\Orange\OrangeCanvas\", line 340, in
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\Orange\OrangeCanvas\", line 207, in
    canvas_window = CanvasMainWindow()
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\Orange\OrangeCanvas\application\canvasmain
.py", line 188, in __init__
    self.recent_schemes = config.recent_schemes()
  File "C:\Python27\lib\site-packages\Orange\OrangeCanvas\", line 214,
in recent_schemes
    recent = pickle.load(f)

Thank you so much! :D

Can you try deleting the Orange Canvas settings directory?
Locate the 'C:\Documents and Settings\your user name\Local Settings\Application Data\Orange Canvas' directory and remove it. The 'Local Settings' directory is hidden so enable the "Show hidden files and folders" in the Explorer (Menu -> Folder Options -> View).
Or simply run this from the command prompt
Code: Select all
rmdir /S /Q "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Orange Canvas\"

Then try starting Orange Canvas again.
