@mitu Many thanks. Oddly the config file has always been this way and it has worked in the past. I will update this and report the result.
Unless it has been using a config file from somewhere else where it was entered correctly, this is impossible. It only works if entered as @mitu described. :) I should know, I wrote the software. And if a [screenscraper] section isn't found, it won't use the credentials.
