Error while opening catalog: Root element is missing


Recommended Posts



Today I started daminion (standalone, newest version) and wanted to load my catalog I was working with last week, but the error below occured.


Can anybody help ?

I did not alter any drive letters etc. ...


See the end of this message for details on invoking 
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

Could you please locate, zip and send me this folder:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Daminion Software\Daminion\1.0


After sending this folder, please it and Launch Daminion again.


PS. You can also update your Daminion to 602 build




Hello Murat,


Here it is: 1.0.zip

After renaming the folder, daminion started up from scratch, my old catalog was usable.

Now updating to version ...
