program won't start/Macbook

Post by unejanie »

I closed the program before restarting my laptop. Now it will not open properly. The toolbar on top says MMEX - nothing else. no screens open. nothing. this is for a Macbook.

If you can't help with getting it to start, any thoughts on finding the data so i can export it?

thanks for any help.

Possible solution is to find mmexini.db3 file and delete it.

I do not have the file you mentioned on my computer.

i gave up and tried to reinstall the program. My data file is intact. When I try to reinstall, I get a message that the file is damaged.

thanks,

no luck. I backed up and tried again - some message that the file I had just downloaded was damaged and should be moved to the trash. my next thought was to find someone with a computer that could load the software, export my data, and find a different program. If you find something that works, please let me know.

the database has the extension .mmb
this file must be stored somewhere, please search.
if you have deleted the file .db3 (contains only the parameters of MMEX), you will see a selection if you want to create a new database or open an existing one.
if you open the database (.mmb) it should work again.

if this database is corrupted then other .mmb backup files (xxxxxx.mmb_update_YYYY-MM-DD.mmb) should be available.
change the name from xxxxxx.mmb_update_YYYY-MM-DD.mmb to xxxxxx.mmb, open this file and check if the last bookings are ok.
regards Renato use MMEX since 2009, now with Windows 11
