Invalid filename error

Post by kharman »

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to resolve an Invalid filename error in Fixture Creator 6.9? I am brand new to Freestyler but was having some success on my test PC. Then I installed the software on my production PC and every time I try to import I immediately get an Invalid filename error and cannot proceed. I am not even given the option to chose a file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kevin

if you have made changes to a fixture you must export it to a file. Once exported get it on the machine you are wanting it on and just double click on the file to install it on that computer. When you restart freestyler all should work

Thank you for your reply. I have the exported fixture file from my other computer, however I get the error message I mentioned above each time I click on Import before any interaction with my file.
