Upgrade to ARC Pro

Have you rebooted? Perhaps a reinstall of ARC?

Sometimes windows gets confused:)
just rebooted, tried running my project worked fine.
tried it again, same error messasge.

sorry about that.

Try a reinstall of ARC?

Windows can sometimes get confused.:( ARC works on thousands of computers around the world... Your windows is not cooperating:)
reinstall did not work, but this what i did...
remove completely and made sure all directories deleted too. under user and windows x86.
shutdown, restart, reinstall now is working fine, some pointer must have been off.

I love your product. finished my first one in six hours it is called food-bot and works great.

thanks for your help, j
When can we see Food-bot? What does it do?
That's really strange! Man, I wish I knew why windows does the things it does. I'm glad to hear it's rock'n:D
@DJ think of the unemployment spike that would occur if the Windows OS wasn't host to what I call the "ghost in the machine" syndrome.
