Cleaning up your local fixtures database

Post by Dave Brown [admin] » Thu Jan 17, 2019 6:45 pm

The Problem

The standard D-Pro installation includes a default library of around 240 fixtures. You may not actually need any of these. In addition, you may over time have imported a bunch of extra fixtures that you no longer use.

It would be nice to delete these redundant fixtures from your D-Pro library, to clean up the list of fixtures shown in the patch window.

This fix can also repair a corrupted fixture database.

The Fix

The D-Pro fixture library is a single file on your computer called Fixtures.dsf:

OS X: /Library/Application Support/ENTTEC/D-Pro/Fixtures.dsf
Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\ENTTEC\D-Pro 2U\Fixtures.dsf
Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\ENTTEC\D-Pro 8U\Fixtures.dsf

Simply replace the above file with this empty database:

www.dmxis.com/patch/FixturesEmpty.zip (unzip and copy)

What happens next?

Now, restart D-Pro (with a live Internet connection). When your project opens, D-Pro will automatically download all the missing fixtures.
