InitGui.py not found

Postby subseapark » Sun Jul 14, 2019 3:55 am

I am having multiple issues with a new install of version 18-16093.

After start-up, in the report view there are multiple instances of InitGui.py not found.

Init: Initializing C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.18\Mod\Show(InitGui.py not found)... ignore
Init: Initializing C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.18\Mod\Measure(InitGui.py not found)... ignore
Init: Initializing C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.18\Mod\FreeCAD-library-master(InitGui.py not found)... ignore
Init: Initializing C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.18\Mod\Idf(InitGui.py not found)... ignore

Is there a quick fix for the above?

Hi and welcome to the forum!

I can think of several reasons for that:

1. Your version is outdated, it was never an official release, IIRC. Can you tell us where you found it? Download the current stable or a current developer 0.19 version. Both are better than what you have.

2. You can try to reset the configuration with the button in the preferences. Another possibility is to delete your config files or to move them in case you want to restore them.

I downloaded this version from the website https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases , and selected the first file in the v18.2 list suitable for Windows 7, FreeCAD-0.18.16117.dbb4cc6-WIN-x32-installer.exe.

I unintalled the program, then downloaded the above file and installed once again to verify the information, and indeed the program version stated in the About window is 0.18-16093.

I have now downloaded the pre-release 0.19 version: FreeCAD_0.19.17337_x86_LP_11.11_PY2QT4-WinVS2013.7z. This loaded successfully with no errors being reported in the Report panel after start-up.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

You're welcome.

@Kurt, can we remove/replace this version?

It's normal, several modules don't have an InitGui.py (ie. They don't do anythin GUI-wise). It's just an informative message, not an error. Nothing to worry about! :)

I actually get this
OS: Windows 7
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 32-bit
Version: 0.18.16093 +24 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: (HEAD detached at 0.18.2)
Hash: dbb4cc6415bac848a294f03b80f65e888d531742
Python version: 2.7.14
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.2.0
Locale: English/UnitedStates (en_US)

Has to do with building from the 0.18.2 tag and not HEAD of the branch.
