settings.xml is broken


Recommended Posts

I updatet my LB from 8.3 to 8.4 and everithing works fine.
After a restatr of my computer LB dont start anymore.
I says that my settings.xml is broken.
I tried do rename/copy a settings.xml from my backups folder.
But the error message is still the same.

IIt took me a long time to setup my 40’000 games.
how can i rescue my LB setup?

That is unfortunate, are you sure you renamed a backup correctly and moved it to Launchbox/Data folder. If they genuinely dont work then i suggest just deleting the settings.xml from the data folder. This wont affect any of your imported platforms, it is simply the settings inside of Launchbox that you have changed from the defaults, so you may have to change a few settings in order to get it back to how it looked. You can safely close launchbox and delete the .xml and a new one will be created on your next start.
