For some reason a group of us can not open the Mass Hunter Quantitative analysis software. We keep an error code that says "Failed to open batch file. Failed to read binary batch file. We can't analyze any of our bin files.
* does the batch file have a READ only bit? some team members could do this so that files are not changed. I think with Masshunter this is not a good idea!
* question: - so there are several people who have problems, but also people who can successfully open the IDENTICAL batch? - is this file on a server? - could it be file access rights that are inherited on the file?
=> batch creator is local admin and the other quant users might be nomal domain users?
=> use file explorer on the batch file => right click > properties > security e.g.
* other idea: use the current QUANT LOG file in "D:\MassHunter\log\Quant".
search inside for lines: "09/11/2020 time [ERROR] "
We get this when the batch has been opened/saved /created in a different version of Quantitative analysis. Might want to check versions?
yes it would be important to know:a) which versions are available?b) Batch export/import: on which QUANT version was the batch created & on which QUANT version are the load problems?
at the moment I assume: the QUANT is downwards compatible, whether this can be reversed: no idea
Another thing you can do is to check with your IT department and see if they have enabled the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) enforcement policy in Windows. This is commonly done on US government computer systems. Currently no versions of quant are compatible with this policy. The error you are receiving is what you will see if FIPS is enabled and you try to open or save a batch. Compatibility is being investigated for future releases but there is currently no ETA on when this will be available. Currently the only solution is to request exemption for your PC from the policy.
