Hi,
the invalid gif signature is related to an extension of the database done in WUFI Pro 6/ WUFI 2D 4. They use the same database directory like the old WUFI. The old database can not read the number of images which is now available, as there is not enough memory assigned for that in the old version of WUFI.

A workaround for that is to create a new folder for the old database:
1 ) close all instances of WUFI
2 ) Duplicate c:\ProgramData\WUFI\Database\ and give it the name Database_old or whatever you like
3 ) Change into c:\ProgramData\WUFI\Database_old\ and delete all files called Cxx.gif where xx is bigger than 44.
4 ) Start regedit.exe as adminstrator
5 ) Edit the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\IBP-Software\Database\IBP_24 and set the new file path (eg. c:\ProgramData\WUFI\Database_old\). Do not forget to end it with the name of the database "\IBP_24.mdb". The full key should look like the following:

Code: Select all

C:\ProgramData\WUFI\Database_old\IBP_24.mdb
6 ) Enter the following path into your file explorer: %appdata%\WUFI\WUFI2D\
7 ) Edit the file WUFI2d-3.4.ini and add this two lines at the end:

Code: Select all

[Climate]
database=c:\ProgramData\WUFI\Database_old\IBP_24.mdb
After that save the file.
8 ) Try to open up WUFI

Please note: Doing that, the new company logos will not be shown in the database.

Good luck, Christian

Sorry, I forgot the DB name in step 7. Please change it to the following. I also corrected that in my first answer.

7 ) Edit the file WUFI2d-3.4.ini and add this two lines at the end:

Code: Select all

[Climate]
database=c:\ProgramData\WUFI\Database_old\IBP_24.mdb
Regards,
Christian
