Do you have Java installed?

Sure. The original BrickUtils runs fine.
Would there be another way to create a pbg file?
The inventories are on Bricklink or Rebrickable, right?
Can we not create it another way?
Installed it on a different system and works fine. Maybe I should simply delete it entirely and start afresh...
You can do it manually, following the file specs, but that's tedious work.

Hmm, looking at this I think it would be possible to create a pbg file manually using a dump from Bricklink or Rebrickable and with some Excel work perhaps. I'll try some things...
I've found that Brickutils will not apply the correct colour for some elements. I applied metallic silver for the castor ball in the EV3 set and when I checked the file the number that came out was -1
I also cannot set rubber colours in Brickutils so I did that manually
OK, I've succesfully created a pbg of an official set by hand. Using an inventory on Brickset I copied to Excel and create the right format of the text. It was actually not that hard or much work, though I have to add the ribbed hoses and tubes.

Code:
[options]
kind=basic
caption=Set 8246
description=Parts in the 8246 set
picture=8246.png
sortOn=description

Rebrickable has a lot of export options for inventories and parts lists. Maybe they'd like to include LDCad's pbg format too. I'll ask Nathan (from Rebrickable) to see what he thinks Smile

Oh, that would be nice :-)
