Hi Claudio,

Is this line: 

"c:\Documents and settings\Claudio\Configurações locais\Dados de aplicativos\\epidataentryclient\epidataentryclient.cfg" 

exactly what you got from the software error message window?

If so, it could be because Epidata doesn't support accents such as " õ " in the path to the file (or doesn't support the double back-slah  " \\ " ??)

Perhaps could you try saving your projet directly under  "c:\Documents and settings\Claudio\"
