I use openLCA V1.8 for win64. I could restore database such as ecoinvent_34 and elcd 32, but when I wanted to import the relevant LCIA method database, something went wrong.

Here are the errors: 'failed to evaluate script', 'failed to import LCIA methods', 'error while loading impactmethod with id 41511'.

Also I have tried different openLCA versions such as V1.7.4, V1.7.2, V1.7.0, and the same errors happened.

Note that I can import method database for ecoinvent 34 with V1.6.3, but the elcd 32 method database is newer than the software version. So the elcd 32 method database still cannot be imported. What should I do?

THIS IS EXTREMELY URGENT. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Yukunyuan, I just restored the ecoinvent3.4 cut-off db and then imported the newest ecoinvent LCIA method database and it worked flawlessly. Coul you please specify in your question what exact method you are trying to import into which exact database? You are mentioning ecoinvent 3.4 but cut-off, apos or consequential?  TO what method are you referring when you say "elcd 32 method db"? Maybe something is wrong with the method file but to check this I have to know to which exact files you are referring. Thanks!

Thank you.
Databases: ecoinvent 3.4 apos and elcd 3_2_greendelta_v2_16 respectively

Methods: ecoinvent _3_4_lcia method and openlca_lcia_methods_1_5_7 respectively

One of my win10 device can operate them perfectly but another can not. Some of my friends have the same problem as mine. Maybe there is something wrong between the software and the computer brand or model?

There are two versions of ecoinvent 3.4 apos and two versions of openLCA LCIA methods version 1.5.7. Can you tell me the exact file name as downloaded from nexus? Then I can easily try to reproduce your problem.

Sorry about that. I downloaded it from my university moodle, so I do not know the full name of them. That is all I know.

Maybe this one: ecoinvent 34 apos_unit
The others I had already typed the full name.
Have a lovely night.

I just restored the file 'ecoinvent_34_apos_unit_20180420.zolca' into openLCA and subsequently imported the file 'openlca_lcia_methods_1_5_7_updatedCED.zolca' on a windows 10 machine. It workedperfectly fine and there was no error.
