After some maintenance on my computer, I downloaded and installed the latest version of TBC (4.10).

I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. All looks good with the process but when I try to state TBC I get the above notice and nothing after that.

I have a couple of big projects that need to be processed. Any recommendations?

  • Never Mind.

    I gave up and uninstalled TBC once again and also deleted practically everything "Trimble" then reinstalled TBC.

    It works now. The rest will have to be installed again later.


    • Yes, this has been my experience also, which is why I started using a Virtual Machine (like virtual box) to run TBC.  As soon as it starts acting up, I roll back to a clean state which only takes seconds instead of hours troubleshooting, uninstalling and reinstalling.
