Could be a memory conflict or a corrupt file. Close all programs except Explorer and Systray and run it again. If it doesn't work it's a corrupt file. Try reinstalling Splash.

I've run a virus check a few times before and it seems there are no defects detected.

I've notified Splash but they really haven't given me much help or really any "REAL" answers to why this has happened!!
It seems on there notice board on there web site there are a few  who have encounted the same thing,i've emailed them to see if they got any help but i haven't heard areply back!

You can start SPLASH, and it starts -- correct?
When you tell SPLASH to load your file,
then it issues the "access violation" -- correct?

In that case, your file is "damaged" or "corrupt",
and trying to process it creates the problem.

I hope that you have a "backup" of it!

Does that mean only the company who made the program can fix it??
Or is there a way i can?
Anyway the company said it is a bug and they are trying to fix it
but i was wondering if there is a way for me to?

Only the authors of the software can "fix" the bug.
However, it may be possible for you to "bypass" the bug.

If you have an older "backup" version of your file,
try loading that file.  Some bugs are *VERY* dependent
on the exact content of a user's file -- your "old" file
may be slightly different, and may not trigger the bug.

Also, some packages allow you to "include" a file,
rather than "opening" a file.  If your software allows this,
try to "include" the file, into an "empty" work-space,
as a way of trying to "bypass" the problem.
