3.38 will not open

Postposted BeckyBeann » January 18th, 2021, 4:49 pm

Good morning,

I just reinstalled v3_38, rebooted and cruised around task manager because

When I clicked on my DB  file nothing happened. When I click on the program icon and also the name in Start, happens. Almost. If I have task manager open, I can see that it's starting but then it disappears off task manager.

I expected AMN to power up to the .ddb file.  I'd had it open at home on my machine there, but here at the office, suddenly, nothing I do brings up the software.  Task manager shows it comes up and it's enabled at startup but then it goes off.  I don't know how to read the AMN log files to troubleshoot.

It's updated via dropbox, shows that the ddb file is updated. This has always worked in the past.

Is there some setting I can change to make it work today?? 

[yes, I have two paid licenses]

AMN loads and then quits

Postposted BeckyBeann » January 19th, 2021, 10:46 pm

Suddenly, on the office machine, when I click the icon or the ddb file it appears to do nothing. I opened task Manager and can see that it starts running but then it quits and never arrives on my screen. I did not touch a setting...

Sooo I just reinstalled v3_38, rebooted and watched Task Manager. Same thing. AMN Starts up but then shuts down.

It works perfectly on my home machine.

please help!

Look for file named allmynotes.log, it should contain extended information on what's going on.

I can't get into the program to deal with the skin or a language error. I don't know what to do with these errors. Will search forum and FAQ

FIXED Re: 3.38 will not open

Postposted BeckyBeann » January 21st, 2021, 6:18 pm

Uninstalled 3.38 entirely
Copied log and cnfg files from the machine at home on which it works
Downloaded and installed 3.39
It worked perfectly.
Saved as and shut it down
Clicked on filename and again, it opened perfectly.

No idea what the problem was but :D it seems to be fine!!


(yes, I did look at the log files but could not tell what to do about the error.)

It looks like file content of C:\Program Files\AllMyNotes Organizer\Skins\Holy Crown\SkinInfo.ini got filled with garbage. But it's not AllMyNotes - it doesn't saves to this file, only loads it. Perhaps it was some sort of disk error. Anyway, glad to know the reinstallation fixed the problem, I believe it will not happen anymore :)

It looks like an issue with loading Skin configuration - the configuration file is missing. Indeed, in this case the reinstallation helps. IMHO, it signals about some sort of disk error on your computer (AllMyNotes itself never deletes nor modifies skin config files). It may be result of incorrect computer shutdown but better to be cautious and check your drives for errors and using Chkdsk utility. Also, check Smart status of your disk using this command line command: "wmic diskdrive get status"

Same problem here, 3.38 will not open.

I tried a few backup databases, tried deleting the ini file - no joy

The last time I used it was 10 days ago

Between then and now this windows update was done (no idea if it is relevant)

My impression: this is likely caused by Windows update. Majority of users have survived this update without any issues, but, likely, it depends from system configuration. In the past we had similar issue reports which is likely linked to Windows update too - on update some file access permissions where broken, so was needed to reinstall the software. It has no impact on data file accessibility, as it primary affects the skin file, therefore enough to reinstall the software, to restore the skin file, or, to restore the access to it for the program.
