Error Running preVABS related to VABS v4.0 Update

  1. Dana Frye


    I recently had the latest version of VABS, VABS 4.0, installed on my PC. I'm using preVABS v1.4.0_beta. Somewhere in the preVABS code, it is calling VABSIII.exe, which was renamed to VABS.exe for VABS 4.0. As a result, I'm getting this error pictured below ("windows cannot find vabsiii..."). Any advice on how to work around / resolve this? I don't want to revert to VABS 3.9 because we already configured the 4.0 license file on our server which takes time. 

    Thanks in advance.

      Hello Dana,

      Now the latest version of PreVABS (1.4.2) uses the updated executable name 'VABS'.

      Check your installation files, installing 4.0 doesn't delete VABSIII but makes a new folder called "Windows 4.0" where VABS.exe is located.  You'll need add it to your path in environmental variables just like before
