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" and is located in the folder
"C:\Program Files\Dlubal\RFEM 5.xx" or "C:\Program Files\Dlubal\RSTAB 8.xx" by default. If this is damaged or blocked, for example by a virus scanner, the corresponding error message is displayed (see Figure 01). In such a case, it is recommended to adjust the filter settings of the virus scanner.
As an alternative, a new installation is recommended. The first time you try to install the program again, you will be asked if you want to uninstall first. Confirm the query and then install the program with administrator rights and, if necessary, temporarily deactivated virus scanner.
