    Hiya

    Can you post the exact error that you're getting?

    I'm assuming the other pc's can use the program.

    Regards

    All the message says is: Can't Initialize. Then the program quits.

    I am using XP Professional and maybe Wordperfect is not fully compatable with XP Pro.

    Thanks for trying to help.....

    You have to be an administrator of the workstation using XP and WP 8....and only 8.
    6.1, 7, 9, 10 all work fine as power users, but 8 you have to be an admin.
