Hi D3rdProd,

I apologise for this error. Two questions:
  1. Did you install any extra plugins, or;
  2. Did you install and run a newer version of L3DT on the same machine?
It looks like a newer binary (either another version of L3DT or a plugin) has written one of the newer variable types to the local settings file, and the 'older' version of L3DT (i.e. v2.8) cannot read it.

I'll have to thinker about how to fix this properly, but a temporary fix to remove the error messages would be to delete the following file:

[Win 7 / Vista]

Code: Select all
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Bundysoft\L3DT\All versions\Settings\local.ini

[Win XP / 2000]

Code: Select all
C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Bundysoft\L3DT\All versions\Settings\local.ini

Please let me know if that does not fix the problem. Once again, I apologise for this inconvenience.

Best regards,
