And - What Happens. as exactly as you can describe it?
It happened when I did the last main update for the Savage Worlds system.
Further updates for Hero Lab have not fixed it, but those are also now up to date.
I've tried redoing the setting files and it tells me its done them fine but they just don't show up.
It opens Savage Worlds, but I get this on startup:

******
The data files could not be uploaded due to errors. Hero Lab will now attempt to load them in recovery mode. once loaded, you can access the editor as normal to correct and errors.

The Following errors occurred:

Thing 'eq50Grappll' - Condition test must occur prior to all rules and eval scripts, including on components (Initialise, 2100)
Thing 'eq50Quiver' - Condition test must occur prior to all rules and eval scripts, including on components (Initialise, 2100)
*******

I 'ok' this and it loads up, with a box for release notes for Savage worlds

But, once loaded, I no longer have the check boxes for any of the new settings (Deadlands, ETU, Rippers etc)

When I load my Deadlands character it opens, but refuses to understand the Deadlands parts.
A box comes up saying "Critical information not found in data files: source 'Deadlands Reloaded"

The character mostly loads ok at that point, but skills like 'Guts' are listed but in red as errors.

Hope that helps make sense of it all!
Luckily I didn't update one of the work computers I have another licence on and that one works fine.

Cheers!

If Hero Lab fails to load ANY data files (and your error shows it is failing to load 50 Fathoms, I believe) then it will load NO data files at all because it doesn't know if the error has to do with conflicting files or not. The big question is, do you see an update for any of your data files, in particular for 50 Fathoms? If so you NEED to update your data files. That's a very, very important step.

Otherwise if you cannot update it for some reason (or it doesn't show an update which would lead me to think you may have gotten the file someplace other than through the updater) you could try re-downloading it through the updater or just deleting (or at least moving) that 50Fathoms data file to see if that clears up your problem.

Necropolis (NOT Necropolis 2350. I have the version from when it was still a PEG, Inc. property but I have 2350 and I have been looking at updating to that version in the near future.)

AWESOME! Reloading 50 Fathoms solved the problem.
That is really weird as I've always used the updater.
Maybe I missed reloading it after an install of some form.
Either way, problem solved, thankyou loads!

No problem. That's usually the issue. Just be sure to always double-check if any of your data files have an update as old versions have a chance to cause problems and the last major update that had gone out had some things that required changed in some of the data files to get everything up to the new standards.

OK, right off-hand my guess would be that you have the Interface Zero data file without having the required Sci-Fi Companion. You'll need to either pick up the Sci-Fi Companion expansion or remove the Interface Zero materials (Interface Zero 2point0.1st and Interface Zero 2point0.user).
