"System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.  Parameter name: icon"

If you are seeing the above error message message with a new wallet file created on the Android, you may be using an older version of the Android eWallet.  You should be using version 7.6.2 or newer (free upgrade if you have purchased the Android eWallet).  Using an older version can also affect the sync.

To update eWallet on your Android device:

  1. Open Google Play Store or Amazon App Store (the specific app store you originally purchased the Android app from)
  2. Tap the three line button in the upper left-hand corner of the Play Store window.
  3. At the top of this menu screen, you should see your current User ID.
  4. Make sure you are logged into the correct account.
  5. Then tap "My Apps".
  6. Scroll at the top of this screen to view "All" of your apps. (or in the Amazon Appstore your "cloud" apps)
  7. Locate and tap eWallet to re-install.

The Android version of eWallet offers an icon that looks like a double-credit card (same as the top level icon in your wallet).  This icon is actually a "wallet" icon and previously caused this error when syncing with the PC version of eWallet that does not allow use of that icon for other categories or cards.

 So, now:  Open eWallet on the ANDROID, and find the category or subcategory with an icon that looks like a double-credit card (same as the top level icon in your wallet).  Change that category icon to something else.  That is actually a "wallet" icon and should not be used for cards or categories.  (This problem has been corrected in the latest version of eWallet for Android, so you can no longer _choose_ that icon for cards or categories.)
