If this occurs, you can download the updated file from. http://carbonmanagement.com.au/support/ModelParameter.zip

Once this has been downloaded, you will need to extract the downloaded ModelParameter.txt file

& place it in c:\programfiles(x86)\CMS Pro Control & replace the existing file. Reopen CMS Pro Control & you should not see the error message.
