I loved the idea of the Cleantol. Having been away from SimCity4 for A few years and downloading new plugins I was very happy to see this tool. So I downloaded it and ran it and it totally destroyed my Regions and Plugin folders.. I had to actually Reinstall SimCity!

I did read the readme. and after all was said and done I did find a undo.bat file but it was way to late for that.

I think *Just my opinion* it need a lot more error checking and should only remove the selected files NOT my WHOLE Plugin directory/

Nice try though.

Find the undo.bat file and restore your game.

Cleanitol does not touch your regions folder, and it backs up all its files into a folder ( %MY DOCUMENTS%/SimCity4/cleanitol/  or something similar)

But your post has no relevance to his question...

Its usually a sign that either one of the files in your plugins folder or in the cleanitol file itself has a strange character in it, like a Japanese character for example, but in this case you have put quotes marks around the list

"*.html

if you are just quoting here no problem, but they shouldn't be in the cleanitol list and that's maybe what's causing your problem

hope that helps

He's just quoting, see the "'s around the stack-trace too :)

Try writing the cleanitol's list in a different file, that may fix it (I suspect it may be an encoding issue).

Probably best just wait for Stephan to appear.
