Each time I check for updates, or download a sim to previous before I decide to purchase a license I get this error.
I've reproduced this 6 times in the last few days.

Should I reinstall the loader and then reupdate?

I've logged it on Mantis as 22063.

I'm not sure what to suggest, but completely removing SimSigLoader.exe, SimSigRefresherA.exe, SimSigRefresherB.exe, SimSigRefresherC.exe, doing a download of the website, then doing check for updates may resolve the problem.

No licenses are stored elsewhere. Any issues though just request a total unlock, I'm around most of today so it wouldn't take long to do.

Licences are tied to your forum log in and your computer. As you’re not doing a hardware change I would imagine all would be fine. If you want to be extra cautious, it could we worth deallocating your licences (unfortunately this can only be done 1 at a time) and then reallocating them afterwards

As quick as a flash, I've done what you said. Updated without issue and the error didn't pop up. So hopefully could be ok for now. I think it may of lost a file or something when I updated Windows 10 from 1803 to 1809 last week...
Licences all present after that too, so didn't loose them.

Ok, Jumping the thread here a little. It's not done this since I reinstalled the loader. So tonight updates for 3 sims where waiting, I ran check for updates and updated said 3 sims etc. As soon I exit Check for Updates, the error reappeared. Oddly this didn't happen last time there was updates.. I've now reproduced this 7 times with the 6 I mentioned below.

So posting it here for record again.

Check your firewall and/or antivirus for anything that they may have blocked. Runtime error 217 is a Delphi I/O error, ie it cannot access a file for some reason.

I wouldn't say it was my firewall at issue here I'm backed by AVG Firewall. All the rules via here are ok. I've checked Windows Firewall and its the same.

The issue happens when you close 'Check for Updates' to land on the main screen of the loader itself. Updates are downloading/installing normally and seems to be accessing them files without issue.

Too add to the below all files are present in the correct locations..,
Still thinking a file may of been 'removed' when my PC upgraded from Windows 10 Pro 1803 to 1809. Before Microsoft Pulled the plug on 1809 update due to a file bug.. I've reinstalled SimSig once as mentioned in the this thread. I stopped and didn't appear until last night.

I've now completely uninstalled SimSig Loader and removed all keys via RegEdit and Deleted all Firewalls via AVG. I'm going to reinstall the lot again and see how it goes.

UPDATE:
I've reinstalled SimSig, Updated, Install all the sims I use, Allocated The Licenses.. and it's working. I'll update this again if the error reappears.
