I looked at your site. Way too cool. I will have to remember that when Mother's Day approaches. My mom loves Orchids.
Yep christmas weekend and I am still wrapping, cleaning house and cooking which is why I keep walking by the office and checking the boards. I kind of watch the boards on weekends and at night just in case someone needs assistance.
One of two things could be going on concerning the drop downs missing. I presume you are referring to the Auction Lots tab (window) | Auction Site on the menu. Nothing is available as well as the Tasks on the menu?
The download could be corrupted and you need to re-download it again over the top of the copy on your computer. Or, we'll need to get hold of Thom to help. One other user had a similar problem not too long ago. Thom had to step in and provide assistance with a 60 day registration code. The download is suppose to allow 60 days but every now and then something goes amuck. Just happens.
When you run AW2000, on the opening screen, is there a red warning informing you your 60 day trial period has expired?
I am glad you like the software. It truly is an excellent program.
As far as the I/O error 103. Are all the I/O errors 103 or are they different numbers. The 103 is like a File not found, I believe. I have an idea of the cause but since I am not the techy man, if computer maintenance does not correct the problem, I suggest you email Thom at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to supply the exact I/O error number and what you were doing exactly when the error occurred.
Let me know if about the start screen displaying a expiration warning. And if the I/O error persists.
