The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

xml error
« 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.
