Archive is currupted

Post by Potzo90 » Mon May 01, 2017 12:30 pm

I just installed this program and when I start it this message always appears:
Archive is currupted (EOD marker not at expected position)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Oops, indeed! It should, of course, say "Archive is corrupted". :P

Which version of MainType do you have?
FC11.0 Pro (Help) + MT7.0 (Help) • Windows 10

I'm sorry about the inconvenience, but somehow the database is corrupt.

You need to perform a full uninstall, and then reinstall to ensure you start with a clean database.

To fully uninstall MainType:
  • In Windows 10 open the Settings menu (Start -> Settings) and go to System and then click Apps & features.
  • Then remove MainType 7.
  • You will need to fully remove it, so also let it remove the database, vault, and cache files.
