Hi Andre,

There are a few issues with Valentina 1.10 and higher
when used from Revolution -- however, these are being
adressed for version 2.3 ; in the meantime you should
either use older Valentina data files, or connect
using the VCXMD external directly.

Oh, and revOpenDatabase will not create new .vdb files
for you, you need to use the Valentina application to
create a database and set its schema.

Hope this clarified the situation,
