Winfx video converter error message

by llaprelle / May 20, 2012 8:52 AM PDT

I have been using the Winfx Video converter for a couple of years without any problems. I had to reinstall it due to a full system recovery and now when I try and open the program I get the following error message:
"c:\users\LLL\AppData\Roaming\winff\cfg.xm(1,1) Error: Expected element. "
"Press OK to ignore and risk data corruption."
"Press Cancel to kill the program. "
Selecting "OK" opens the program, but the drop-down menus for Output Details are not functional. Adding a file and selecting "convert" causes the same error message to appear.
Selecting "cancel" closes the program.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program a couple of times with the same results.
Any ideas?

from that there seems to be a simple answer.

Close the program down then navigate to C:\users\LLL\AppData\Roaming\winff\ using Windows Explorer and delete that cfg.xm file

Try the program again.

I have no information whether that works or not.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
