Thread: Activity Loading Error

  1. #1

    Default Activity Loading Error

    Hi Guys: A few days ago, the C Drive on my pc failed and is no longer bootable. That is the drive where I had the ConBuilder app installed. I have used that app for years creating & modifying consists and w/the latest version, the MSTS Activity Manager. With the drive failure, all CB functionality is history. However. I have managed to create a shortcut to a mini route that was on another drive & can access the Activity Editor for that mini route. I can access & modify all existing activities in that route w/o any problems. However, when I try adding routes from the now defunct C drive into the Routes folder in the functional Editor, I get a popup error message that reads: "759-Failed Loading Activity Header". Following that, the error message shows the path to the location where the activity resides in the Route/Activity folder.

    My question is, does anyone know what this error message means and how do I go about fixing it so that I can access the route in the Editor. Thx in advance for your thoughts...Hawk

    PS: Train Simulator did not reside on the defunct drive. It resides directly on the drive that still functions normally. (D:TS)

    Vince -- thanks for the link that I need to find at the site of msts.steam4me.net/msts_errors.html#act_header. I need to check the activity inside the route folder -- CN_Ruel from Trainsimulations Content. But need to ask about the trk file and which program can open this file. Yes I do have the program of Context and will that work to open the trk file or leave it alone -- don't touch that file.

    You can use Context, WordPad or NotePad to edit the TRK file.
