EDF file writer suddenly doesn't work

Post by Berloznik »

Hello everyone

Until now the file writer always produced a .edf file with data but since this morning an error appears and the file is empty.

[ INF ] At time 32.383 sec <Box algorithm::(0x00002884, 0x00004273) aka EDF Fi
le Writer> Writing the file, this may take a moment.
[WARNING] At time 32.383 sec <Box algorithm::(0x00002884, 0x00004273) aka EDF Fi
le Writer> edfclose_file: Could not close file [C:/EEG/record-[2017.12.13-03.31.
33].edf]
[ ERROR ] {Error description} : {Box algorithm <EDF File Writer> uninitializatio
n failed}, {Error type} : {ErrorType::Internal (code 2)}, {Error location} : {C:
\ovm\sdk\kernel\src\kernel\player\ovkCSimulatedBox.cpp::125}

I didn't change the location which worked perfectly until today. Anyone knows if this a bug or if im doing something wrong? Im using Openvibe 2.0.0

kind regards

Hi, could it be possible some other application or even crashed designer has the file open? What if you change the path and/or name of the file? Does reboot change anything?

Cheers,
Jussi

Hello!
I have a similar problem:

[WARNING] At time 0.000 sec <Box algorithm::(0x00006601, 0x00002719) aka Generic stream reader> No stream candidate in file for output 4

the ov2edf scenario is in the documents folder. I have the same issue with the ov2gdf scenario.
I'm working with the 2.2.0 64bit version

Please could you help me find a solution to this problem?
Thank you for your time and help!

Hi,
THe only time I have seen this problem is because i haven't enough space in HDD.
But maybe :
I have you all (administrator) rights on this output file folder (here the desktop) ?
Maybe (but really maybe) can you run OpenviBE in admin mode (right click on designer.exe properties->compatibility check run as administrator).

Hello!
I changed the file's path to a different user (Public): C:\Users\Public\Documents\convert ...
Turns out the special character in the previous user name caused the problem.
All the converters work just fine now.

Thank you for your time and help
