    Default TDM error

    I'm getting a null error when I try to start Lammania from the TDM. I downloaded the updates for TDM and when it tries to start Lammania, I get pop-up error windows cascading across the screen telling me 'Value cannot be null'. I put this in the Lammania tech assistance page but it doesn't look like anyone ever goes there.

    I got this too ... what gives?

    any suggestions as to what to do (besides competely uninstall and re-install?)

    I have never had a good experience with the TDM and DDO.

    (WinXP, SP3)

    edit: the TDM is running in the background, but I can't open it. the cascading error messages say it's the TDMGUI which is the problem. They I try to open Lamannia, and attempts to connect to the server fail, repeatedly.

    Hey, Turbine, can anyone do some tech support here? And don't tell me to uninstall and re-download as it's 7 gigs and takes me days and days and days to download.

    I couldn't get Lammania to run either, so I uninstalled it and am now having this exact same problem.

    This post might help with the problem you're experiencing. If that doesn't work, we recommend uninstalling TDM and reinstalling it.

    I *had* the TDM many error pages issue and did this:
    1) Using control panel uninstall the TDM (not the DDO-Lama client).
    2) Downloaded Tolero's dndsetup.exe from her my.ddo page and ran it.
    3) TDM installed, updated itself and ran successfully and updated the Lama client (it didn't have to re dl the lama client - just looked at it).
    4) Lama client launch had an xml launch issue.
    5) Told TDM to repair/revalidate client
    6) Works now.

    Edit: Tarrant's answer above is probably a much faster process.

    that fixed it, but now my TDM doesn't realize lamannia is installed

    So then I unfixed it, because while it complains about an error while actually looking at it, it still updates lamannia, and launches lamannia when its on the toolbar.

    I uninstalled the old TDM from my computer (I also uninstalled the old Lammania client just to be safe, but I honestly don't think you would need to do that) and everything seems to be downloading fine now. Launched the Lammania dndsetup file and it reinstalled the TDM and is now working fine. It only takes me a few hours to install the game, so I'll be on with a clean install later tonight. Looking forward to it!

    I guess I didn't have TDM backed up. Anyone know where I can re-acquire it as I uninstalled.

    tried again. says "uninstall key name argument missing". so, it must be uninstalled. and it is still giving me pages and pages of errors. oh, well. test server isnt important to me. was just curious why it isnt working, and why i cant find an updated link.
