Error: Error parsing your configuration file: [C:\Users\Vampy\AppData\Roaming\HughesNet Usage Meter\status-meter.config]: Unexpected Token
I tried uninstalling and reininstalling and got the same thing. Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance for any help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the event that this happens:
1. Fully quit the Usage Meter from it's own menu by clicking on the donut in the menubar and clicking "Quit".
2. Look for the following directory
Windows: C:\Users\[your User name]\AppData\Roaming\
Mac: /Users/[your User name]/Library/Application Support/
3. Carefully delete just the "HughesNet Usage Meter" folder under that and empty the trash.
4. Restart the Usage Meter. This will regenerate all the underlying information as if it were run for the first time, thus correcting the error.
Try uninstalling the status meter and usage meter from your system, then navigate to C:\Users\Vampy\AppData\Roaming\HughesNet Usage Meter\, and delete anything that desides in that folder. Also navigate to c:\program files\hughesnet-usage-meter and delete anything that may reside in that folder. Then download and install the latest version (Should be 6.6) and see what happens.
What about the file in particular that is mentioned in the error? I am suspecting that uninstalling isn't removing that file for some reason, and that's why a reinstall isn't working.
I uninstalled again, went to C:\Users\Vampy\AppData\Roaming\HughesNet Usage Meter\ and deleted that folder but there was no other folder in C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files 86x. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. I reinstalled but still got the same error. I had the latest version of the Hughesnet Meter installed.
I was thinking of uninstalling java but it's not in add/remove programs and after doing a little research someone suggested typing this %SystemRoot%\system32\javacpl.cpl into start but when I do I get this:
So now I have to try to uninstall java if I can and reinstall it. This has become a real chore. I see this is not so easy to do and I might have to use cmd prompt which I have never been real comfortable doing.
@Liz You may need to look into this... There are also a few people in a private setting that are experiencing this... @Amanda may know more since she seems to frequent that group of people...
I think I fixed it. My Java was not showing anywhere on my PC including in Add/Remove programs in Control Panel. I downloaded the java uninstaller file named JavaUninstallTool. I ran it but it couldn't find the file to be deleted. That worried me. I downloaded the latest version of the Java installer named jre-8u121-windows-x64. When I ran the file it saw I had Java installed (now I was really worried) but it gave me an option to install and repair so I tried that.
Before I installed this new Java I had uninstalled The Hughesnet Meter and that folder. After I ran the Java installer and repaired I again ran the Hughesnet installer again with fingers crossed. It installed this time with no errors and is running in my system tray. When I mouse over it, it now shows my allowance. I'm not sure if this will help the others here with problems but it's worth a shot. Thanks everyone who tried to help and answered so quickly.
JRE (Java Runtime Environment) shouldn't (more like isn't...) a requirement for running the status meter... Have no idea how nor why that would fix the problem...
I have no idea either because I don't know programming but this website: What is Java and can I do without it?
