Have you got a file called cty.fdt in your WXSim folder, it should be around 103 kb in size?
If not, do you have a backup of your WXSim folder and does that contain cty.fdt that you can copy & paste into the main WXSim folder?

Thanks for the reply :)

I do have a cty.fdt file in WxSim folder but itís only 85kb.

WxSim is located in C:\wxsim but this is asking for it to be in C:\Windows\system32\???

I copy and pasted the same cty.fdt file to that location but no change still get error.

It looks like somehow wxsim.exe has gotten put into that system folder.  It should be in, and run from c:\wxsim (which is the default where it should be installed).  It looks in the "current" directory, meaning the one where the .exe resides.  Make sure wxsim.exe is in c:\wxsim, along with cty.fdt (and a bunch of other files).  No wxsim related files should be in any of those system folders.  Let me know what you find!

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the reply. Yes I confirm WxSim is installed in the C://WxSim folder. I canít see any trace of WxSim in the folder it identifies???

Not sure where to go from here

Hmmm ... can you send me custinit.txt and wxsmini.txt, so I can inspect them for a reference to that folder?  WXSIM shouldn't even "know" that such a folder exists!

Thanks!
