CM Helper loading problem

Recommended Posts

Been using CM helper for a while now, and it just stopped loading. Updated to the latest version (1.6.2) and I think I'm getting the same error.


I have had a few HD problems lately, and I suspect it may be linked, but not sure how if I've just used the new version. The error message I get in a CMH Error Message popup window is 


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 6, in <module>
  File "__main__.py", line 128, in <module>
  File "__main__cmh__.py", line 125, in <module>
  File "controller.py", line 51, in __init__
  File "appstate.py", line 52, in __init__
  File "permadict.py", line 29, in __init__
  File "permadict.py", line 79, in load
ValueError: File not in a supported format
Anyone have any pointers?

Or, there is this wording in the Help system ...


Occasionally, if you have a crash of your computer, it will leave CMH in a state where it can't run anymore.


To recover from this, you need to do one of two things.  Either:


a.  Run CMH from a command prompt with the reset-state option


 DOS>  cmh.exe reset-state


 OSX>  ./cmh.app reset-state




b. Delete CMH's AppState.txt file


At the top of the log window (Options->Show Log Window) CMH tells you where the log file is stored - the AppState.txt file is in the same place.   If you can't access the log file, you will need to search your disk for AppState.txt.


Under Windows it is usually in a place like:  




Under OSX it is usually in a place like:  


/Users/username/Library/Application Support/GreenAsJade/CMHelper/

Doh! Completely missed Phil's post with the detailed instructions that helped me fix it, apologies!


The reset state command line switch didn't do it, but deleting the appstate.txt file worked, all up and running now, thanks Phil.


I'll PM Gaj asking him to ignore/close ticket 218. :-)


Thanks again Phil,
