KBA-01169: sfATC starts, but shuts down immediately


Why does sfATC start but then shut down almost immediately? In the Event Log, the following error is recorded: .NET Runtime 2.0 Error, EventType clr20r3, P1 sfatc_ic.exe, P2 1.0.2264.33872, P3 44175676, P4 mscorlib, P5, P6 4333ab80, P7 32f8, P8 119, P9 system.io.directorynotfound, P10 NIL.


sfATC requires a work (temp) folder for files it downloads from the Spitfire Catalog.  This folder is inside its installation folder.

  • Add a temp folder in the sfATC folder.

For example, if sfATC is installed in C:Program FilesSpitfiresfATC,  you should create C:Program FilesSpitfiresfATCtemp.
