### Topic: Machine Define is giving a "Cannot find *.TRN" file error.

Technote 212
Date: 07/05
Product: Machine Define
Version: v12.x

Problem:
Machine Define displays the error: `Cannot find C:\SM9\shared\[app].trn`. Where `[app]` is a description of the type of machine the SMF file is for.

Solution:
Check your `smartcam.ini` and `machdef.ini` files located in your Windows directory. The INI files should point to the v12 install area. The default area is C:\Program Files\SmartCAM\SmartCAMv12\

In the C:\windows\smartcam.ini file under `[Defaults]` check that your path lines looks like this:

`SmartCAMPath=C:\Program Files\SmartCAM\SmartCAMv12\ `

And in the C:\windows\machdef.ini file under `[defaults]` check that your path line looks like this:

`desfname=C:\Program Files\SmartCAM\SmartCAMv12\SHARED\WMDEF.DES`
