[SOLVED] WG crashes after installation and config

hi all,
installed WG v1.1.1/18 on windows vista ultimate SP 2 64 bit.
- i'm located in sydney, australia, so i've modified the "WebGrab++.config.xml" file to have yourtv.com.au channels.
- i've also exported the yourtv.com.au cookie.
thirdly, i've disabled (or tried to disable) the MDB post processing.
on running the .exe i get:
"File C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\xmltv\tvguide.xml not found, creating a new one .."
this is already a problem since there is no Docs and Settings folder.
continues with:
"ABC1 updating, using site YOURTV.COM.AU, mode incremental
MDB ini file - C:\ProgramData\ServerCare\WebGrab\mdb.imdb.com.ask.ini - doesn't exist
Cannot run MDB postprocessor"
it's at this point i get the standard windows dialogue "WebGrab+Plus has stopped working"
i'm not sure why the post processing is kicking in, when i have:
"<postprocess run="n" grab="y">mdb</postprocess>" in the config xml.
i'll attach the config files shortly.
dh.

Ok,
first:
update to the latest version of WG++ (use the update download).
The one you installed is the base version. And that is a very old one. (but you need it before you can do the update) So update to V1.1.1/51.
 
second:
use the latest verson for yourtv.com files (download it from the EPG channels page. Copy the .ini file next to your .confi.xml file
 
third:
The mdb should not be run. Have you changed the folder location of the .confi.xml file? The only reason I can think of, is that you have placed a copy of the .config file in an other folder and that WG++ just takes the original .config file.
But mayb it is already fixed when you update to V51.

ok, cool. i didn't realise about the update, so that seems to have got me a bit further.
 
after modifying the new yourtv ini to look for the right cookie filename it appears to be working its way through the channels!
 
thanks!
