there are probably non-ASCII characters in your NEF files, like accents or degree marks. the latest libRAW (which is used by PI to open DSLR files) has problems with non-ASCII filenames.

rob
Yes it was a problem of non-ASCII character, not in the name of the file but in the path to this file.
Thank you so much !

I for one am very grateful for all the work Juan and his team have put into PI. It is the best software at doing what it does and I cannot imagine life without it.

Yes there are those who will be forever critical of anything but we should never lose sight of where we have been and where we are now in this journey. Very exciting and looking forward to more!

Keep up the great work everyone!

hi all,

I have installed Pixinsight 1.8.8.7 on Windows and I want to install the new version 1.8.8.8. For that I need to uninstall version 1.8.8.7, but I can't because when I try through Add or Remove Programs nothing seems to happen and the program is not uninstalled. It had never happened to me. Is there another way to uninstall version 1.8.8.7 or how can I overcome this problem?
Thank you for your help

doesn't the windows installer for 1.8.8-7 give the opportunity to uninstall? at the very least it should offer you to repair the installation which might then allow the windows uninstaller to work (wild guess...)

if you don't have the -7 installer i think it is still on the PI software distribution site.

Hi Rob

I used the windows installer for 1.8.8-7 and it doesn't even allow to uninstall, repair or reinstall. It seems that a PI-windows-x64-1.8.8-7-20201217-c.msi file does not exist on my system. Please check the attached image for the error message. So at this point it seems that Pixinsight is really blocked not allowing you to update it.
Thank you in advance for your help in trying to find a solution to this problem
Best Regards
Luís Ramalho

unfortunately i really know nothing about Windows - maybe someone who uses PI on windows and has faced this problem can speak to it.

having said that, this seems like some kind of problem on your computer as an .msi file is some kind of installer package file, and i would expect that the installer binary you ran is trying to write that file to disk and then open it to extract the files. do you have some antivirus software running? if so it might be a good idea to disable it while you are trying to run the PI installer.

hmmm - I've just had my second corrupt project file since using the latest version.... has anyone else had this yet?

This time, 8 images are missing (from the project.data directory) is there a history I can review to find what the project wrote the last 2 saves? The images were certainly there on the workspace when I last saved the project. It's a new SSD and I've just scanned it for errors (none) and checked for deleted files (obvs not deleted by me) and it reports none....

OK - third instance of lost files and project issues... I am concerned it's either the SSD failing (brand new!) or something wrong with the saving of projects in PI... I normally have 4 workspaces on my projects but I've noticed that with the ones where files are lost I now have 8 workspaces which seems odd! Is there a log I can review?

I am a bit annoyed about the latest as one of the lost files included the finished image! Unfortunatly I had only saved it as JPG at the time.
