    Jason, Thanks for all your efforts. I finally got things sorted out and it’s starting. I tried importing from D-Fend reloaded and ran in to trouble.

    First, it had an issue with the relative paths for the images. That was easy enough to fix and it completed the import. Then, it closed on me with this error:

    System.ArgumentException: Column ‘Rating’ does not belong to table Game.
    at System.Data.DataRow.GetDataColumn(String columnName)
    at System.Data.DataRow.get_Item(String columnName)
    at LaunchBox.DataManager.Load()
    at LaunchBox.MainForm..ctor()
    at LaunchBox.Program.Main()

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    I had that exact same problem with those error messages coming up and I found that it was caused by an incorrect release date for one of the games I had imported from Steam. The date was something like Jan 1 2001, but with some extra zeros, obviously an error. When I manually imported that game the problem went away.

    Thanks Bobby for the info, and thanks Duncan for chiming in. Apparently there’s still an issue somehow with the D-Fend import; Bobby can you help me troubleshoot the problem by sending me your LaunchBox.xml file? Also, if you can, send me all your D-Fend .prof files from your D-Fend Confs folder. That way I can use them to run the same import myself and reproduce (and fix) the problem relatively easily. Send them to Thanks much. :)

    Please make a Filters editable.

      Sakamo, can you explain? I do need to revamp the filters for several reasons; for one, the list gets too long and then is a pain to use. I’m also planning to add a live search that would search all of the fields.
