Error at startup of DC interviewer desktop application : "Configuration system failed to initialize".
A pop-up screen appears with the message "Configuration system failed to initialize" when starting the Data Collection Interviewer desktop application.
The MIVx.tmp interviewer log on the pc contains the message below:
