Snagit Invalid updates configuration file

Asked By 780 points N/A Posted on -

Hello friends, sharing here an experience of mine while using Snagit, when I updated Snagit, error message was displayed on my screen, it is talking about an error occurred on .ini file, see below the error screen shot.

nvalid updates configuration file. The first line of the .INI file should be “;aiu;”

Invalid updates configuration file. The first line of the .INI file

should be “;aiu;”.

When I analyzed the error, it is referring to a .ini file about the first line that should be “;aiu;”. I don't remember doing some changes on .ini files, and I am not also a master on that field to touch it, on my last resort I scan my computer for some virus that might infect my .ini file, but none was found, please share your ideas on my problem, thanks a lot.

Snagit Invalid updates configuration file


Hello Maryfalty,

After high research on Google I came to conclusion that this particular problem happens with the advance Installer . I hope that you are also using it. 

If You are using Advanced Installer then what you need to do is edit the "update configuration file " available over the server.

And you need to include the "; aiu" as the first line. Then you can continue the operation.

If you are not using the advance installer, then you should possibly try opening the update configuration file with some editor, prefer some good Multi editor from the internet and edit the first line as .aui.

Hope that answers the Question.
