    Hiya

    Can you explain what Approach is, as i've not heard of it? Also, by the looks of the error, its conflicting with a driver from a HP Deskjet 930 series. Do you have one of those installed on your system, or has it been uninstalled?

    Regards

    Is it the version Deskjet 930, or a different type? Also, is it turned on at the same time as you get this error? If so, turn it off and see if you still get it.

    Can you go to Start | Find Files, and type in

    HPF9XDR0.DRV

    How many are found, and in which locations?

    Well, that rules that bit out :(

    If there were two, then they may have been conflicting with eachother, one trying to use the same driver the other is using at the same time.

    Is it the version Deskjet 930, or a different type? Also, is it turned on at the same time as you get this error? If so, turn it off and see if you still get it.

    Also, have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling Approach? If there are any saved files, copy them to another folder, just to be safe.
