Integrate keeps crashing due to an Xml error, even after fresh install


I had a PC crash during my work with DATPROF Integrate.

When starting Integrate now it crashes before opening any project. 

I even did a reinstall but nothing helped.

I found two examples of errors .

InvalidOperationException - There is an error in XML document (0, 0).    at System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializer.Deserialize(XmlReader xmlReader, String encodingStyle, XmlDeserializationEvents events)

When starting Datprof integrate two Xml files are read:

  • <USER>\AppData\Local\Datprof\Integrate\layout.config.
    This file contains the info about the positioning of the Integrate objects.
  • <USER>\AppData\Local\Datprof\Integrate\user.config.
    This files contains the info about the recent used projects.

During a crash thes files might become corrupt causing Integrate to fail during startup.

Remove theses files, they will be created again,
