  1. You are presently running the stand-alone default installation of AyaNova v3 at the same time as you are running the CEImport utility.

When in stand-alone default installation mode, you can only run one program at a time. Make sure the AyaNova v3 program is exited before running the CEImport utility

  1. You have not edited the AyaImport.exe.config file you created so that CEImport can find the AYANOVA.FDB file

You must include the full path as per the instructions - i.e C:\Program Files\Ground Zero Tech-Works Inc\AyaNova.FDB

  1. You have incorrectly edited the AyaImport.exe.config file and it is not pointing to the actual location of the AYANOVA.FDB database file.
