    Using Elroy's example, when I have a button that, when clicked, starts some long-running process, the first thing I do is disable that button and often most of the rest of the UI controls so that...

    VS 2017 Re: Unable to run exe program

    What changes, if any, have you made to the programs?

    Any updates installed?

    Does Task Manager show the programs start, the exit?

    More information is needed for a diagnosis of the issue.

    Can you read from the .ini file on the network drive? If yes, then it is likely a permissions issue, even though you have granted "Everyone" full access. Post the actual full path that you are...

    Do you get this error when creating the installation package or when you are trying to install it on another computer?

    Re: Dead Monitor

    It sounds like the backlight may have died. Those are generally replaceable. Post the exact model number and we can check to see what one might cost, and how much trouble it might be to replace.
