Sorry for the delay but the message was tagged "collect" and "earth", not "collectEarth", and I missed it.

Please have a look at this reply while a fix is implemented.



  • dig manually to the file C:\Users\marchi\AppData\Roaming\CollectEarth\earth.properties
  • open it with a text editor
  • change the line "db_driver=POSTGRESQL" to "db_driver=SQLITE"
  • save the file

Hi There,

Collect Earth failed to open, exactly as described above since yesterday. I did move one file into different folder last week but it was not the application file. Since this morning I start to get this message. alt text tried to reinstall but, first it won't download fully in my PC. So downloaded into USB using a different computer. And transferred for installation. Installs without problem, but still not starting. Just the log window pops up for few seconds and nothing happens alt text

Help appreciated. Tesfay
