Dear Chemaxon,

I have a problem when I open an excel file containing Chemaxon data (structures). Each time, a error message appears with the following message:

"Could not load settings!"

The details give me the following data:

Exception: System.FormatException
Message: Le format de la chaîne d'entrée est incorrect.
StackTrace:    à System.Number.StringToNumber(String str, NumberStyles options, NumberBuffer& number, NumberFormatInfo info, Boolean parseDecimal)
   à System.Number.ParseSingle(String value, NumberStyles options, NumberFormatInfo numfmt)
   à System.Single.Parse(String s, NumberStyles style, NumberFormatInfo info)
   à ChemAxon.JChemExcel.Base.ExtensionMethods.XmlExtensions.GetNullableSingleAttribute(XmlNode node, String name)
   à ChemAxon.JChemExcel.Base.Settings.XmlFileDocumentSettingsProvider.CreateFont(XmlNode node)
   à ChemAxon.JChemExcel.Base.Settings.XmlFileDocumentSettingsProvider.SetRangeSettings(RangeSettings rangeSettings, XmlNode node)
   à ChemAxon.JChemExcel.Base.Settings.XmlFileDocumentSettingsProvider.SetSettingsFromXml(String xml)
   à ChemAxon.JChemExcel.Base.Settings.AbstractXmlFileSettingsProvider.LoadSettings() 


What can I do to repair it?


Thanks for your help

could you please post your settings file from the following location?


Documents and Settings\<User Name>\AppData\ChemAxon\JChem for Excel\Settings.xml


Users\<User Name>\AppData\Roaming\ChemAxon\JChem for Excel\Settings.xml

It seems JChem for Excel has a problem reading it.

Dear Bostonman,

I could reproduce the bug with French regional settings. The problem is that it tries to save the font size with 9.75 instead of 10.

We will fix this issue for the next release.

In the meantime you can fix it in the following way:

1. Open up options.

2. Go to Formatting\Data

3. Change the Font size from 9.75 to 10, by manually typing it in on the right. If you select it with the Font selector it will switch to 9.75 again.

4. Restart Excel.
