    Default Kettle startup error

    Hi there

    I have Kettle on my PC and it was running fine, now however it does not want to start. During the startup I choose 'no repository' as I have done previously and it now proceeds to throw an error:

    java.lang.NullPointerException

    I previously had the BI suit installed for review but removed it after the error started (not before). I have also tried deleting all the Kettle files and unzipping again, I also have 3.1.0 M2 and 3.0.3 and neither want to work :-(

    Any assistance appreciated.

    Default

    Same answer as usual

    When on windows go to your user directory in "Documents and Settings" and rename the .kettle directory.

    On Unix/Linux systems rename the .kettle directory as well (which will be in your home directory).

    Regards,
    Sven
