#1 Odd Error Message when Starting PSPad

Posted by: Shadeclan | Date: 2020-02-28 19:32 | IP: IP Logged

Today, when I opened an Oracle procedure in PSPad, I got the message "Not a palm database or database corrupt". When I did an internet search on the message, I found this page in Czech which, when translated, seems to be about a PDB to text ebook format translator. I have no idea if the person running that page is in any way connected to Jan, but Jan may be using this translator code somewhere (although the actual app, PDB2TXT.exe does not exist in the PSPad folders anywhere that I can see. There is an executable in the Plugins folder, PDB.exe, which may have a similar function - the error message did mention a plugin problem.

The error just seems to be a minor annoyance. Any suggestions on a solution?

Hello

PDB files are handled with file type plugins.
If you want to edit PDB files directly in PSPad and you don't want to open PDB (palm database file), go to folder .\PSPad\Plugins\FileType
delete or rename PDB.EXE, e.g. to PDB.EXE.BAK
