Question: I get and installation error, "Insufficient privledges". What's wrong?

Answer: Your Windows user id needs "Administrator" privileges to install programs to the C:/Program Files folder. If you are not able to log on with an "Administrator" id, just create a new folder (ex. C:/Programs2 ) and install to that folder. You are guaranteed to have 'write' access to any folder you create.

Answer: Try the Application Diagnostic Tool which may solve the problem.

Question: The program starts but crashes and/or an error message pops up. What's wrong?

Answer: Restart the program and go to 'Help--Session Log' file. Error messages in the log may give you more information about the failure.
