I just did an important test:
- created a new lightshow on same computer
- copied fixtures.ini and fixtures directory from faulty directory to new lightshow : 3DView won't start ! That"s good information, problem is either in

fixtures.ini or one of the fixtures files.

I look at the last modified fixture file from the faulty show
copied one I backed up recently

IT WORKS AGAIN :)

so this fixture file must have been corrupted.

Lessons Learned:
- frequent named backups, at least on config changes and major scene updates
- if this happens again I know 3Dview looks at fixtures.ini and individual fixture files.

Thanks for those who tried to help,

Great ! Good job. Did you keep the corrupted file so you could check what was wrong with(in) it ?

Yes, if possible please post the "working" and the "corrupted" files.
This may speed up things for us to fix that problem.

Enclosed the faulty file. You will see that it starts with head "4" and ends with head "1"

I now recall I wanted to revert the order as moving heads appears in the reverse order i wanted. #1 was right and #4 was left. I wanted the opposite. So using Editor/Fixtures/Edit Fixture I moved each head using up and down arrows.

To confirm this was the problem I now reproduced the issue by naming heads "4" to "1": no 3Dview.
And moved them back "1" to "4" : 3D view fine.

3rd lesson learned : do no move heads order.

Is there a way to reverse heads for a multihead bar ? From left-right to right-left ?
