If decode population has stopped and restarting the Decodes window does not cause the display to update then likely you have a corrupt database file and it will need to be deleted.

There are two ways you can use to delete the database files. Choose the method you prefer.
  1. Using Windows File Explorer delete all files with names starting "decodes" located at

  2. Temporarily set the Decodes startup options (found under the Decodes Window File->Settings menu) to "Delete All Records" then restart (close & open) the Decodes window. Once restarted, you can change the options back to your previous setting.


    Under-the-hood, this option will cause the the database file to be deleted and a new empty file to be created.
