I just ran into the problem discussed in this older thread: http://forums.thedar...dled-exception/


I checked darkradiant.log and it said:


2019-03-13 14:19:54 (13600) XMLRegistry: Importing XML file: C:/Users/user/AppData/Roaming/DarkRadiant/filters.xml
2019-03-13 14:19:54 (13600) Unhandled Exception: Unable to load file: C:/Users/user/AppData/Roaming/DarkRadiant/filters.xml
I looked at filter.xml and it was an empty document (well, a bunch of spaces). I deleted it and then DR started up fine.
So all is well. Attached is the bad 'filters.xml' file, if anyone is interested. Seems like a pretty minor bug.

This has happened to me a couple times as well. It can be sort of annoying. Ill fill out a bug report if there isnt one already.

Yeah last I recall, the general thing I was told was to delete the DR temp folder in AppData and restart. Not sure what causes it myself but I think it's been a persistent (if primarily annoying) bug that's been around for a while.

You need a model? Epi does you a model.


Toss me a PM I promise I don't bite.

One of these days when I’m bored I’ll take a look at the code and see if I can find the problem.
