Error Message: Run-time error '383' when saving microplate layout

Document ID: DQ286
Relevant to following products: WorkOut 2.0 Manta
Document description: Error Message: Run-time error '383' when saving microplate layout

When Save and Close is pressed in the layout editor the application displays the error message:

Run-time error '383'
Property is read-only.

and the program exits.

If this situation occurs use Windows task manager to terminate the MTE5CmdLn.exe process.

This issue only occurs if the data folder where Manta or WorkOut stores its data contains a full-stop (period). This can occur if the Windows user name contains a period, e.g. “john.smith”.

The problem occurs if the Create a new microplate layout wizard option was selected from the Organiser and the microplate layout is edited from within the layout editor.

This has been fixed in WorkOut 2.5 and Manta 2.5. It is recommended that an upgrade to version 2.5 is made.
