AttributeError prevents application from opening

Bug #1196172 reported by Earthisthering on 2013-06-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Advanced Comic Book Format

Bug Description

This is the first time I have tried using this program; it is a completely clean install of the latest version (0.98). I am running Windows 7. I have Python 2.7 installed.
When I try to open acbf.exe in any way, I receive a message stating that "Errors occurred".
The log file is as follows:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 131, in <module>
  File "", line 123, in run
  File "main.pyc", line 27, in __init__
  File "preferences.pyc", line 11, in __init__
  File "preferences.pyc", line 50, in load_preferences
  File "preferences.pyc", line 70, in set_value
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'text'

This occurs whether or not I am trying to open a comic file, through the command line as well as the graphical file manager.
I found an older version of the program (0.6), which seems to work without issue.

can you check if you have C:\Users\[username]\acbfv_conf directory and in it a preferences.xml file? It should look like this:


Try deleting all files in acbfv_conf directory all the whole directory and run the application again. BTW, you don't need to have python to run acbf.exe. In my Win7 virtual machine all runs fine.
