Title: Pixinsight can't see xisf files
Post by: alcol on 2015 July 16 04:43:37
Hi folks

I have the trial version and its been behaving itself for the first couple of weeks. I must say it is very impressive.

However, turned PC off last night and turned on this morning and when I go to open an xisf file with PI it can't find any xisf files. They are in the folder because I can see them. xisf is not listed as one of the "All known file formats"

Please don't send me to Q & A because I have been there and can find no answers.

Help please as I am now at dead stop and can do no processing

Regards

Alec

I am afraid you'll have to read the FAQ section 3.9 http://pixinsight.com/faq/index.html, and follow the instructions for reinstalling modules there. It did help others that had the same problem.

Hi georg

Can I simply re-install PI? I am only a trial user and have nothing saved?

Rather a lot of choices on the link you provided, can you give me a few more pointers on where to find what I need. I have only just started to use PI and still at the start of the learning curve?

Thanks Georg

Followed your instruction and para 3.9 gave the precise procedure to install a lost module. Did that and I am back in business. All very simple when pointed in the right direction

Thanks again

Regards
