I also just had this issue. The previous issues in the archives are not helpful; they just say it's rare and is being archived. This is preventing me from making any edits whatsoever, since I get it on program start.

Jim Cartar did this happen after you upgraded? Did you do something else to catch the bug?

@Magioladitis: I have updated to the day it was released and today when I opened the program I got this bug. Everything was normal, I haven't done anything to catch this bug.

Jim Cartar is this one off r do you get it often/always?

No.. @Magioladitis I don't get this bug often. So far I have got this bug twice.

I get this bug when my internet connection is down when I open AWB, and stays even once the connection is working again.

Now in version with me. Setup data from the message (whole dump available):

Version: AutoWikiBrowser (, WikiFunctions (, revision 10538 (2014-12-23 21:37:52)
.NET: 2.0.50727.3053

This message appears at ~75% of the progress bar. Earlier, at ~10% progress bar, I get this message (in a messagebox with an 'OK' button):
"Netwerk access error De type-initialisatievoor WikiFunctionsParse.Parsers heeft een uitzondering gemaakt" (Dutch; '... has created an exception'?).

I can continue and then log in in AWB. Then, when I Start a run, my AWB enters an eternal loop "Restarting in ''n'' seconds".

This happens after since I installed this version. It could be that it happened days before too (with the previous version). I remember that this happened too with version (August 2014? July 2013; see next post), and then disappeared with its next version. I did not touch the registry or any AWB settings-files. Any ideas or questions? @Magioladitis

DePiep I know. We believe that the bug is related to temporary connection problems. I already asked @Reedy to help.

OK, now I know you have read this :-). Let me know if I can help.

@Magioladitis Is it an option to manipulate the registry? Any other resetting? I'm without AWB for months now.

I just got this when attempting to load settings for use on the Yu-Gi-Oh! wiki; I was able to log in correctly, but none of the settings I tried to load worked. This is on the most recent version of AWB; I've added the version string from my error report to the above template.

AWB too. -DePiep (talk) 19:04, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Wikia sucks

Thank you for your detailed commentary report @Reedy ;)

I'm being serious. They modify MediaWiki and set it up in weird and wonderful ways. Then run ancient versions to boot.

It's a PITA

I feel you, Reedy; those of us who know better definitely don't enjoy being stuck with 1.19. You should see what happens when Wikia tries to upgrade, though... Bugs forever.

When I load up AWB it it loads the green loading screen then after a few seconds comes up with a network access error. When I press ok on the error it then loads up the message pasted above.

When trying to load a settings file I receive this error, which prevents my rules and module code from loading.

Only seems to affect Microsoft Windows NT 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1

Is resolved? If yes, close this task.
