Amiga Forever 2014 - "Cannot open preferences file"

Just trying AmiKit for the first time in my Amiga Forever 2014 distro ... right after boot I get an "AmiKit Live Update" dialog open and on top of that an error popup titled User Request, with the message "Cannot open preferences file".

I know *nothing* about Amiga, just to give you my perspective on things .

Is there something I can do to resolve this, should I just ignore it?

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to AmiKit!

It seems like, for whatever reason, that the file is missing. Please download it from here:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/lfhqx5gqm7h19ue/AmiKit-LiveUpdate.cfg?dl=0
and copy it to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Amiga Files\Shared\dir\AmiKit\Prefs\Presets\AmiKit\LiveUpdate
(provided that you installed Amiga Forever to its default path).

Did it help?

Hmmm the file was there already so it seems not to be that simple. After I clear the initial message about the preferences file I get this screen, does it offer any more clue?

Well, I have no idea what's wrong there. Please download and copy the following file to the same location as before to ensure you have the latest Live Update program: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/490828/AmiKit/misc/AmiKit-LiveUpdate

If it doesn't help I recommend to re-install AmiKit. Right-click on its entry in Amiga Forever, select un-install and then download it again. I hope it helps.

Yup I just removed the whole thing and reinstalled, and it's working now. Thanks!
