eliminate annoying Perfect Script popup

My Word Perfect merge script pauses with a modal popup "Macro Compilation Summary", requiring user to "OK" to continue. It didn't used to. I believe the cause is some setting in Perfect Script (which I understand only sketchily and as a component of WP) that I accidentally altered last week. The merge
script includes an embedded macro which apparently gets compiled at every execution.

A web search returned this advice

With the Advanced Features enabled in PerfectScript, you chose (in
PS):
Tools|Settings|Compile Tab|[x]Show progress

Open in new window


But how can I open Perfect Script and find such a menu?

I'm using Word Perfect X5, and Windows 7.

Thanks for any answer and/or additional insight.

I don't have much experience with PerfectScript myself, although I did once download an evaluation version of X6 which no longer works but it has a shortcut to start PerfectScript in the Start Menu - WordPerfect Office X6 - Utilities. Assuming you don't have that you could try going to the program folder and start it directly (in X6 it's called ps160.exe, maybe you have a different version), there you will find the Tools-Settings menu and on the Compile tab you can clear the Show Progress option:

Perfect - thanks. Problem solved. (For WP5 the executable turns out to be ps150.exe. There seems to be a pattern.)
