When I do an "ALL BOOKS" search, towards the end of the search results topics list as I scroll down the list the application quits and I get a "error type 1" message.  How do I fix this?  I already increased the app's memory allocation by 500K.

You did the right thing by increasing the memory allocation, but it is quite possible that 500k still isn't enough when it is doing a large sort. Experiment by increasing by 3 or 4 megs and see if that works. If it does, trim back the memory allocation until it starts choking again.

If it still crashes no matter how much RAM you give it, then try taking the MS Bookshop Preferences file out of the Preferences folder in the System, and rebooting the machine. (Just leave them on the desktop for the moment). If you still have the same problem then you can put your original preferences back into the system later. If you have no further problems and everything now works, trash the Preferences folder sitting temporarily on the desktop.

If all that fails, let me know and I'll suggest something else.

Cheers,

Rifty.
