LayoutUserSettings problems

Jan 19, 2009 at 1:57 PM
I get this message that "customization assembly could not be found or could not be loaded" Excel could not create the correct "LayoutUserSettings" from the default value given. The error msg days that the data had unvalid format. The very long list of Exception text is copied below.

Any advice on how to fix this?

Best regards

Tor:

I haven't seen this problem before, but it looks like something went wrong with the file Excel uses to save your NodeXL settings.  If you close Excel, delete the file, and then reopen Excel, the problem should go away.

The file is in a partially-hidden folder, so you can't just navigate to it the usual way in Explorer.  However, if you copy this folder path directly into Explorer's address bar, after replacing the "YourWindowsAccountName" part of the path, Explorer will take you to the folder:

[For Windows Vista]    C:\Users\YourWindowsAccountName\AppData\Local\Microsoft_Corporation

[For Windows XP]     C:\Documents and Settings\YourWindowsAccountName\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft_Corporation

In the folder, you'll find a subfolder that starts with "NodeXLGraph".  Delete that subfolder.  If there are multiple such subfolders, delete them all.  Now restart Excel.

Hi Tony,

I have that same problem with the NodeXL installation as described above by Tor Arnesen. The installation was successfull, but when I tried to open the nodexl template an error message appeared and the nodex item in the excel ribbon has been not created. I tried to install the NodeXL on another computer with different MsOffice2007 and WindowsXP language-version but the result was that same. I was trying to find and delete the subfolder "NodeXLGraph" as you recommended but I have not found any folders of this or similar name in "C:\Documents and Settings\YourWindowsAccountName\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\". I tryed to restart the computer several times without results.

Would you advice me how to fix it, please?

Best regards,

Peter

Hi guys

First of all thanks for the reply to Tony. I followed the procedure recommended, but with the same result as reported by Wizard1 - so the status here is that the problem still persists.

Best regards

My initial guess about a corrupt settings file was wrong.  I still don't know the cause, but now I'm wondering if it's related to language.  Peter and Tor, can you please tell me the language of the machines on which you've tried NodeXL?

Thanks,
    Tony

Also, what do you use as a decimal separator in your language?  Is two-and-a-half "2.5" or something else?  (I may have found my bug, and your answers will help me confirm it.)

Thanks,

I am running a computer with Norwegian (no) language setting.

Decimal separator: A comma is used, as in "2,5"

best regards

Tor

Hi Tony,

my computer is running with a Slovak language setting.

Decimal separator is comma (i.e. "2,5") exactly like on Tor`s computer.

Best regards

Hi Tony, Tor,

the problem is in the different separator character.

I changed the separator in the windows settings from comma (",") to dot (".") (start->Settings->Control Panel->Regional and Language options->Customize...(in Regional Options tab)->Decimal Symbol) and now the nodexl seems to run correctly.

Tony, do you have any idea how to set the nodexl for comma separator, so I would not have to change the regular settings?

Thank you both for help! ;-)

Tor and Peter:

There was a bug in NodeXL involving regional options.  I've fixed it, but all my computers here are US-English and I haven't been able to fully test the fix yet.  Would you mind trying it and letting me know if you can successfully open NodeXL after installing the update?  (You do not have to uninstall the previous version; just install the new one.)

http://www.codeplex.com/NodeXL/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=22940

Peter, you should be able to change your Regional and Language options back to the options that are correct for your language.

Thanks,
    Tony

Peter:

Depending on what you did in NodeXL after you changed your regional options to work around the NodeXL bug, you might have to delete the settings file I mentioned in my January 19 reply before opening the NodeXL template.  In fact, why don't you do that, so we know you're starting with a clean slate.  (The settings file may or may not be there.)

Thanks,
    Tony

It is working!

What I did was the following:
  1. uninstalled the previous version - including removing all mentioning of NodeXL from the registry
  2. restarted the computer
  3. installed version 1.72
  4. started NodeXL
Thank you for the help.

Sorry for all the trouble, and thanks for helping me track down the problem.
