    Default Can not create new project.

    Hi,

    I am having a weird problem right now. I tried to create new project but failed.
    Even after creating new workspace, I can not create new project.

    Please see attached images.

    P.S.: I compressed my C: drive after installing Zenon. Can this cause any problem?
    I re-installed several times, but no result.

    HI,

    One more thing I just observed that, ZenDbSrv.exe is running.
    But I changed my PC name a few days ago, so due to that it is not connecting to SQL.

    So where or how can I change, PC name for this exe or Zenon_Dev instance?

    for the changed computer name:
    type %cd_system% into the address bar of the explorer
    -> the zenon system folder will be opened
    -> open the file zenDb.ini
    -> check at SQL Provider string if there is your old computer name within the sting (localhost should also work)

    for the compressing issue:
    afaik the SQL project path must not be compressed
    -> btw: the installation of zenon is also not possible if the whole C:\ drive is compressed

    Regards,
    Herbert

    Yes, it is localhost.

    I compressed whole drive after installing Zenon, but I can install zenon still.
    I re-installed two times. It shows drive is compressed on installation window.

    so decompress the whole drive and try it again

    zenon Editor was working before.. yes?
    -> after compressing the the drive the zenon editor does not work
    --> so this is probably the reason for this

    for the SQL providersting
    -> localhost should be fine

    also register the version via the startup-tool (after decrompressing)

    Zenon still works fine, but with the already created project only. I can modify and run this project but can not create new project.

    okay.

    How long is your new pc name? Is it more than 15 signs?
