Error message: The resource file is not valid

(Last updated on: November 13, 2015)

Do you get the following message when opening Wintix:
The resource file is not valid.  Overwrite it with a new empty one?

resource file not valid

Click Yes to overwrite the resource file with a new, empty one. The problem will disappear.

Technical explanation:
Some of the settings for Wintix are kept in the resource file Foxuser.dbf. The file contains non-critical information like settings for the report format display and size of the ticket template form. It is required by the Microsoft IDE we use, not Wintix. It is not important. If the resource files are erased, new ones are automatically created.

Why Microsoft insists on this file, we don’t know.
