When doing a Download All Units command, you may receive an "Access Violation" error message. This is typically a result of a corrupt record in one of two databases. To find and eliminate this record, use these steps:

  • Close the DigiWin program, if it is running.
  • Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the C:\Program Files\Digigate folder.
  • Run the program "Dataview.exe" (User ID = digi, password = 1989).
  • Select the button labeled "Open Database".
  • Navigate to the authorized.db file and select it.

  • Look for a blank entry in one of the following fields (UniqueID, TENANTNUMBER,ACCESSNUMBER,UNITNUMBER,or LASTNAME).
  • Do the same thing for the Tenant.db file if you do not find the problem in the authorized.db
  • When you find the line with the problem, select it and use the button with the minus symbol to delete ONLY that line.
  • Continue to check the file to see if there are any remaining corrupt entries.
  • Select the Close Database button and then close Dataview.
