The software PrintAPlot Batch cannot be opened normally and it is always ended with a message as shown in the attached file.  When i first installed it, it worked, then all of a sudden it stopped. I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, gave permissions, added permission in registry, tried to run as an administrator under that particular user account., and it doenst work. I CAN run it as local admin (run as) and logged in as local admin. It sounds to me that it is something with the profile? not sure?

They are running Windows XP Service Pack 2.

more likely this happened when you applied SP2 or some later "hotfix" updates that rendered the program unstable.  Removing and reinstalling it won't solve the problem -- you will have to remove the hotfixes, or whatever caused this problem.

i dont believe that it is a hotfix issue because it works when logged in as other users on that same machine. i am starting to beleive that there is a problem with the profile and the software?

i have tried that and it still doesnt work. i believe that there is something wrong with the program. it was just purchase this yr but is dated from 1997 it seems there is a combatibility issue somewhere along the line. it was a cheap program that i am not going to waste anymore time with. Thank you for all your assistance. i am just going to purchase a better more updated program that does the same thing. Thanks Again!!
