System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException - Error message


I am running a server with TDA version and 2.7.

Between the 2 version I have about 50 schedule tasks which run throughout the day, and these have been running fine until yesterday when I started to recieve the error below.

Can anyone help me resolve this please.


Error only appears on v jobs.

Attempting to Deserialize an empty stream

It looks like your settings file got corrupted. You will need to reset them. To do so, start up TDA and go to the about window. Use the Application Data Directory link. Once there, close TDA. Then rename that directory and restart.

This should resolve the issue.
