    Hi Gabriele,

    GeodeWPF.exe is a Golden Software program that Surfer calls every time Surfer opens. The program controls the commands that download online base layers (Map | New | Base Map from Server command) and grids (Grid | Grid from Server command). This is called every time Surfer opens. What problems are appearing when Surfer is opening? Is the program crashing or giving an error message? Any additional information you can provide would be helpful.

    Thanks,

    Sabrina

    Hi Gabriele,

    The GeodeWPF does actually use the proxy settings, as defined by the computer (you can see these in Internet Explorer, for example). You don't need to make any modifications in Surfer, the GeodeWPF program simply picks up the settings and uses them. Can you try the following steps to see if the issue is resolved:

    1. Close Surfer if it is open.
    2. Open Windows Explorer and browse to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Golden Software\Shared.
    3. Delete all of the Geode files, including the XML, INI, and any LOG files.
    4. Go to https://support.goldensoftware.com/hc/en-us/articles/227331707-WMS-servers-for-use-in-Surfer-MapViewer-and-Didger. Download the XML file from this page and save it to the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Golden Software\Shared directory.
    5. Try opening Surfer by double-clicking on the Surfer.exe or Surfer icon.

    Does Surfer open? If an error appears, please send me the LOG and DMP files located at C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Golden Software\Shared and C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Golden Software\Surfer 13. You can email the files to sabrina@goldensoftware.com Can you also let me know what specific version of Surfer 13 and Windows you are using?

    Thanks!

    Sabrina

    Hi Sabrina, the error is generically a "GeodeWPF has stopped working". Actually, the program does not work even in interface mode (error "Error communicating with server"). It seems it does not read the proxy settings, as Surfer Update does. The problem for us is that the automation stops when th error raises. Gabriele
