Failed to initialize database - reported on loading IMWEdit

Article created: Jan 19 2001, updated: Jan 19 2001

Background:  IMWEdit with IMW version 6.52x - Upon opening IMWEdit or loading a database in IMWEdit, the program reports that it can not intialize the database, and then proceeds to open with no active database.

Status:  Bug - requires upgrade
Categories:   *Errors / crashes* *Data entry*

The release of IMW version 6.521 and 6.522 included a new method of storing settings between sessions. A mistake in moving existing settings to this new method caused a problem with security. The result was that no user could be authorized to open the database in IMWEdit.

The problem is fixed in IMW v6.523. A Data Entry only patch(imwedit.exe plus related DLL's) is available on the downloads page.
