I cannot run FFA as I receive the error message:

Runtime error 217 at 00686275.

The last time I ran it I had no issues.

Running Win 7 64 bit.

Suggestions?

Try these steps:

1) Download the latest installation file for FeedForAll from our website: http://www.feedforall.com

2) When asked if you want to run or save it, you want to Save it to the Desktop.

3) After the installation file has downloaded, minimize and/or close everything until you can see the desktop.

4) Right click on the feedforall.exe file you downloaded and go to Properties.

5) Left click on the the 'Compatibility' tab.

6) Check the 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' box.

7) Select the Windows XP option from the drop-down list.

8) Also check the 'Run this program as an administrator' box near the bottom and click on OK.

9) Run the installation file and click on the Install FeedForAll option.

10) Click on Next on the first step.

11) Click on Next on the second step.

12) Click on Browse on the third step.

13) In the upper left hand corner, change c:\program files\notepage\feedforall\ to c:\feedforall\

14) Click on OK.

15) Click on Next.

16) Click on Next until the installation finishes.

17) Right click on the Shortcut to FeedForAll.

18) Left click on Properties.

19) Go under the Compatability Tab.

Thanks for the help. I had already decided to reinstall and that worked fine. Then tonight I find that everytime I restart the program I have to reinstall it. I had done everything up to your steps 19 and beyond. I'll try later and see if this fixed the repeating issue.

BTW, why do I need to select a downlevel compatibility when I've run this program before without issues?

Thanks for the support.
