DatHeader Error on startup


DatHeader Error on startup
#1
Hi community

When starting the latest version from DatHeader (3.0.23), I got a error message,
Missing Catecory.txt.

After confirming the dialog box, an attempt is made to download the file.
This leads to another error message.

DatHeader runs that way too, but this Zenario comes every time it starts.
Thoughts or solves?

Dunno... I have the same category file update problem (but since I do have the file, DH doesn't fail at startup). Updating ldconfig.ldr does work fine.
Attached my category.txt file, to be placed in DH folder.

There should be a category.txt file in the directory with DatHeader. Copy this file to the ldraw directory. This should solve the problem.

Thanks Philo, Thanks Orion

There is even the catecory.txt file in the ldraw root directory.
It seems that the newer version (3.0.23) looks in its own root directory.
3.0.22 should access the file in the ldraw directory, which starts without problems if the file is missing in the DH root directory.

Could there be another error causing this error message?
Where on the ldraw sites is the file category.txt stored?

When I installed using the AIOI I got a copy of the file from 2014. And it is not up to date. Many valid categories are missing.

Download category.txt

Why do Datheader fail to download this file? Where is the file stored?

I get the same error. I did have categories.txt that had been installed with LDPE, so I copied and renamed that file and now DATHeader is happy.

However, it also keeps asking for primitivescale.txt, and feeds the same connection error when I try to download that.

categories I think this is a result of me implementing https on ldraw.org. IT probably reads the page that lists the categories and creates a txt file for it.

primitivescale is here:

Heh, wouldn't you know…now that link is itself broken. (Bad certificate warning, followed by 503 error.) It was working mere hours ago.

Works for me. If you're using Firefox try a Ctrl-Shift-R

Seems to be back up now. Chrome took a while to recover, but I was able to grab it in Safari.

I also notice I have no keywords in the official list, probably due to the same connection error?

And is the full error (body) scan always so very slow? (10-15 minutes to scan a 100 Kb file?)

Yes. That 4MB fallback pattern I posted on a recent thread took all night to do on my machine.
