Receiving error message while trying to use PC5250 emulator to AS400

Hello, I am currently running Vista Business and trying to connect to an AS400 via my PC5250 emulator on my machine.  I've never had any trouble, even with Vista until a few weeks ago.  I hadn't updated anything or installed any new software, it just kind of stopped working on me.  I've seen this exact same error on this site via GOOGLE, however that was involving a remote user.  I am on the same LAN as the AS400.  I receive the below error each time while trying to connect

Here is where you can find the latest service pack for Client Access.  Only V5R4 and later are known to be Vista compatible.

The CWPing shows that your PC is communicating with the iSeries, the host servers are running and  telnet is responding.  This is good.

When you open PC5250 to start a telnet session what is the error you receive?

I was unaware of any service pack for iSeries.  We are currently using version 5.2, as there seems to be an issue with 5.3.  Where can I find information about the newest service pack?

Yes, that is actually what I just read.  The odd part however is that I have been running V5R2 for about a month now and it worked fine for about 2 weeks after I installed SP1.  Not sure how that happened, but I'm looking at getting V5R4 now, thanks!
