"Asking me licence."

jacquibrown ... I don't know what licence it is asking for, I am assuming you mean after clicking on 'Fix Errors'. I have not used the program myself as I have never needed to, so did not know about 'licence'.

Perhaps you could give a bit more detail - here within this thread please - so that I, or others, may be able to help further.

Your obviously a Newbie, so welcome to the Forum. Not scolding you, but - the Yellow Envelope should only be used 'By Invitation' of the member whose Envelope it is. I hope you can become a regular user of the Forum, you will learn quite a lot, not just from your own problems but from everybody else's problems and answers too.

To this end I would advise you to download the PDF Forum Rules, they can be found at the Top Right of the Helproom main page.

Anyway, as I said - can you give us a bit more info of what happened when you tried my Link.

Sorry this is so long-winded.

OK understood - I wish Free meant Free, bloomin' Firms ... have a look through this lot, if at first you don't succeed try a different one, I am sure you will find a Free one that works .. Good luck.
