QBI won't open after update

Hi I installed all of the new updates and my AyaNova program is running fine however when following the install instructions it said to remove QBI first, which I did and then redownloaded and reinstalled after the AyaNova update and now I am getting the following error message on QBI

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

Hi Debbie

This is the same error you posted in the topic http://forum.ayanova.com/Topic1620-94-1.aspxin July

The error occurs because you do not have the AyaNovaQBI.exe.config file

Create a copy of your AyaNova.exe.config file, and rename AyaNovaQBI.exe.config

So am I going to have to do that everytime there is an update?

Hi Debbie

You must have a AyaNovaQBI.exe.config file to be able to run QBI - if its not there, it won’t run.

Uninstalling QBI does not remove the AyaNovaQBI.exe.config file as that is created by you when you first configured QBI, but if you remove it, you have to recreate it.
