Error-Unspecified Error With CAM2 Measure X1


Error: The log could not be opened for the following reason: Unspecified error.

When receiving the error “The log could not be opened for the following reason: Unspecified error check to see if the software will still launch after the user clicks OK in the error message. Customers will also report the inability to open log files as well as the software freezing during the manipulation of CAD models.

If the application still launches after clicking ok then the error is referring to the C:\Documents and Settings\(User’s login or computer name)\Local Settings\Application Data\FARO\CAD Engine\1.0\CADEngine.log.

This log file records all the commands that are executed, in the event that there is a problem with the application then we have a log of the events that took place for debugging purposes. The log might have become corrupted or the application simply cannot open the log to continue recording events. This should have no effect on the functionality of the application as it is used primarily for problem investigation. Rename/erase the log file and re-launch the application, a new log file will be created at launch time and the error should not be spawned.

If this does not fix the problem the next course of action would be to first verify the user has the most recent update to the software he is using. Then uninstall and reinstall the software by using the following steps.

You can use the following procedure for the reinstall of your software.
