The handle is invalid

Post by genierose » Sun Sep 18, 2011 5:48 am

I just downloaded Musette and am so eager to start using it, but when I go to do anything I get a box that say "The handle is invalid" and I can't proceed. What causes this and how do I fix it?

First lets recheck the installation. Remove the current version with Windows Control Panel. Just to be safe, download MusSetup.exe again from and install.

If that doesn't fix it, click Musette menu "File/Example Files". Choose file types "All Files". Look for a file called MusetteLog_yy_mm_dd.txt, where "yy_mm_dd" are today's year, month and day. The log file contains more information about the problem. Post the file here as an attachment.
