When using RFEM or RSTAB, I get an error message saying that my cross-section library was not found or is damaged. What can I do?


The file for the cross-section library is named ProfileDB.ADB . It is stored in the folder by default
"C: \ Program Files \ Dlubal \ RFEM 5.xx" or "C: \ Program Files \ Dlubal \ RSTAB 8.xx".
If the file is damaged or blocked (for example, by the virus scanner), the error shown in the figure is displayed. In this case, it is recommended to adjust the filter settings of the virus scanner .

Alternatively, you can perform a new installation. The query appears asking if you want to uninstall first. Confirm this query and then re-install the program with administrator rights and, if necessary, temporarily deactivated virus scanner.

In rare cases, the cause may be the missing Windows updates. Therefore, check for and install updates of the operating system.
