Instead of displaying the results in the STEEL-EC3 add-on module, the message "Write Data () failed of module RF-STEEL EC3" appears. What is the error?


This is a bug that occurred in version 5.10. It has been fixed in current versions. The error was caused by a Windows update that set automatic delete of temporary files and folders. The program has created a folder to store temporary files or calculated results. Unfortunately, before the calculation ran out, Windows deleted the folder. The program had nowhere to store the data and displayed a message: "Write Data () failed of module RF-STEEL EC3". Unfortunately, no data can be saved. To resolve this issue, disable the Windows "Temporary Unused Erase Feature" or install a newer version of RFEM.
