Problem with app starting
Posted on 2006-11-01
We use a product called Maxwell Management Suite. The previous administrator built a program that pulls data from the Maxwell software and exports it into another program. The program that does the exporting is called NGSDS. NGSDS has worked fine for the last two years that I have been here with only minor modifications needed.
On Friday we upgraded the Maxwell software to the latest version. Since the upgrade the NGSDS program will not run. It is set to automatically run each night, however doesn't do so. In addition, when attempting to manually start the program (double clicking), the program shows in the task manager for a second or two and then disappears. The app (GUI) never opens and nothing else happens. I have looked in the event viewer but don't see anything regarding the file.
What do I need to do to figure this out? I have the original source code for the NGSDS program which is written in Delphi, but I'm not sure what to look for.
