    Hi ,
    I can't start Objectplacer XML since a month now. I tried uninstall and reinstall but nothing. I get this error that there are missing these runtime files :

    However when I checked on c:\Windows\System32\ directory all those files where there :confused:

    The fact is that I didn't use Object placer for a month now but It worked just fine before.
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks

    Hi Andrew,

    That is kind of weird. The code is using the environment variable that determines where you windows is installed to find the system32 folder. Could it be that something has changed there?

    You can check it in your environment variables. Right click on "My Computer" and select the properties. Then the "Advanced" tab and on there there is a button called "Environment variables". In the list of the system variables you should see one named windir which should give your Windows folder (normally this is C:\Windows of course).

    Could you check if that one is set OK on your system? And have you done anything to your OS recently that might have changed this?

    I don't have the foggiest idea what happened... Got to be something I did in the month I didn't use ObjectPlacer.
