Show server init failure

Hi Guys,

Ran into a problem today when we tried to load our show. As usual I opened up Hog 4 PC and tried to launch our show. A few seconds into the loading process, a "Show server init failure" window popped up and the file would not open. As far as I know nothing changed on the computer between now and the last time this show was loaded. Other show files were loading fine on that computer, and the problem show file also would not open on other computers. Originally had version 3.3.1 loaded but was given the same error with version 3.4. Computer is running windows 8.1 and hardware is a Nano Hog. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Are you still seeing this issue?
    Do you have a backup that will load?

    Hi Michael,

    With this specific show file I am still experiencing problems on all computers tested. I have a backup from about a month ago that loads which is what I've reverted to, but unfortunately that one is missing some updated pallets. The most recent backup got formatted two days earlier when the sound guys were desperate for a drive.

    Anyways, I'm up and running now but still curious to know what could have happened to that file?

    I have exactly the same Problem in 3.6.1 and only a very old Backup, which loads fine
