Default gambit problem... help!!
Posts: n/a

I try to load a file in gambit to edit the model but this thing came out;

'Error:This database was not properly closed'

Can anyone help me with this. Thanks in advance.

What ever directory you saved the model in, there's a ####.lok file you have to delete where #### is the same as the filename of the model. Gambit deletes this file on a normal shut down... the idea is to prevent someone from opening the same model while you are working on it... if Gambit doesn't shut down properly, it doesn't delete the file and you'll have to do it manually.

Hope this helps, and goodluck, Jason

Thanks Jason,

I can't find the ###.lok file in my directory and I have deleted all the files with ###.lok just to avoid gambit crashes. Pls advise.
