    This has been a problem with random users for some time. Each time we think we have it fixed it comes back and bites us.

    If you are using a country setting with comma as the decimal separator rather than point and get a string format error:
    • Uninstall ADE. This is very IMPORTANT
    • Now change your country settings to UK or US
    • Re-install ADE
    • Start ADE and complete the new user wizard
    • Make sure ADE is closed
    • Change your country settings back to your own
    • Start ADE again.
    Unless something has changed that I don't think has changed then this is an ongoing problem that so far has always been fixed by the above process.

    ALWAYS start with a clean installation don't try changing the country settings with a partially initialized setup as I believe it will continue to behave in unexpected ways.
