For the first time in 25 years, we opened gifts tonight! :-D The kids suggested it. Everyone had nice hair. :lol:

Anyway--I installed EQ6 and I can't open it. It reads "could not initialize application Error 42 IPM" I emailed tech support, but I'm sure with the holidays, I won't hear for a few days. So--has anyone installed and had that message? I'll start reading the book in the meantime.

Were you connected to the internet when you were installing the program? It needs internet access to sucessfully install :D:D:D

LMBO....I never would have thought of "nice hair" as being a reason to switch traditions :lol::lol::lol: I can see the appeal to this though!!!

In case you can't find the answer, here's what that FAQ page says:

This error 42 is Vista’s way of asking you for more permission. Here’s what to do:

The short way:

* Hold down your keyboard SHIFT key and Right-click the EQ6 shortcut on your desktop.
* Choose Run As, or Run..., or Run As Administrator from the menu.
* Allow this, then continue on with the activation.

The long way:

* Click START > Computer.
* Double-click on your local disk C drive.
* Double-click these folders: Program Files > Electric Quilt Company > EQ6.
* In the opened EQ6 folder you will see two red and white files.
* Right-click on the red and white EQ6 file that is an application file.
* Choose Run as administrator.
* Choose to Allow this and then continue with the activation.
