Input file is not a ribbon configuration file

I have just installed ERDAS IMAGINE 2014 and when I start the software it throws a "C:/PROGRA~2/Java/JRE18~1.0_9/bin/wkspace009044.xml: Input file is not a ribbon configuration file" error.What am I doing wrong?

Re: Input file is not a ribbon configuration file

Can you provide the full text from the session log? It looks like it might be having trouble finding your TEMP directory. If you open a Command Prompt window and enter the “set” command, what does it report for the TEMP and TMP variables? Do you have full read/write/modify permissions for these folders?


What do you have your ERDAS IMAGINE Temporary Directory set to? Open the IMAGINE Preference Editor (IMAGINE > File tab > Preferences) and navigate to the User Interface > User Interface & Session category. Scroll down about half way to locate the Temporary File Directory preference. It must be set to a directory on a drive with plenty of free disk space.
