Error in autotuning tied to missing XML - Masshunter GCMS

Version 2

    User could not tune and was getting missing .xml errors. This error was observed in MassHunter Acquisition software B.07.00 on a GC QQQ but may be relevant in other revisions as well.

     

    Error in auto tuning! Missing XML file or invalid contents. Failed to process the child elements in element [ QQQTuneFile]
    Failed to process the child elements in element [positiveIon Parameters]
    Failed to process the child elements in element [Auto Tune Settings]
    Failed to process the child elements in element [tunemasses]
    Failed to find a required element [ isActive]

     

    This error was attributed to a corrupt auto tune file. In this case, D:MassHunter\GCMS\1\7000\defaulteiex.tune.xml was renamed to atune.eiex.tune.xml.  The instrument was retuned successfully using the new tune file.

     

    Important to note that this should only occur in B07.00 or earlier. There has been a code change in B07.01.
