Title: xml error
Post by: Aussie Carolyn on October 18, 2010, 06:27:46 AM
My turn to ask a question. Below is a screenshot of an error I keep getting. I have uninstalled and re-installed several different versions and I get the same error everytime. Inkscape does open but I cannot keep any changed settings and after about a week the program fails and I have to install all over again. I have had this problem since I installed version 0.48 (it is no longer on my computer for this reason).

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I have a funny feeling it is a Windows error.

Hi Carolyn,
I think there is a file you need to delete.  Can't look right now as it's time for Kindermusic and Sarah is still in PJ's.

Thank you so much for the links, it worked. I followed the path on my computer and deleted the file and it works perfectly.

I wish I had asked weeks ago or googled it. I just thought it was a Windows issue as a few things are acting strange.

These things can be very frustrating.   I am not as computer savvy as you so I have to search for an answer for most things.  You can be sure that someone will have posted something on Inkscape.org about almost everything that can go wrong - LOL.
