    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.

    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.

    OK folks....we are breaking tradition here tonight also and opening our presents soon. (1st time ever, with no kids in the house Christmas Eve or morning:cry: ). The festivities will start with brunch tomorrow morning here in PA and end up with supper in Greece, NY.

    Anyway, I think hubby got me EQ6....so I may be back for some help.

    Merry Christmas!

    nursie--Greece isn't far from me--about an hour+. Is this a lull before grandkids? Will you see your kids at some time? Remember--it's not the 25th that's important--it's the love. ;) I'm sure we'll have to show lots of flexibility in years to come...

    You are sooo right, flexibility is the key to sanity and peace.

    Actually the reason everything is out of whack is our youngest DD and her hubby have moved to New Zealand for 2-1/2 yrs for her to do post grad work at the Univ of Auckland. Even after they were married, she and her hubby always came up on Christmas eve and stayed, getting up in the morning to carry on the tradition of dragging dad out of bed as he is protesting that it is too early (actually he was usually awake waiting for them). We all had dinner here with other DD and then DS would come from Rochester that evening or the next day and we would all meet at youngests house for supper as my son has developed cat allergies and we have 3.

    Anyway, we will make this work, AND we have opened presents...and I not only have EQ6, hubby also got me a Netbook to use with my embroidery module and designs. I really am lucky!

    Neat to hear you are near Rochester (Greece), NY. Maybe we can meet sometime when we are visiting our DS.

    Take care, and learn EQ6 real good.... I may need some guidance in the future :wink:

    Merry Christmas!

    Oh, do have one DGS he is 10. Get to see him tomorrow for brunch!

    Okay--since you were all so helpful and encouraging, I wanted to show you how I'm learning! :-D

    Here are a few I've done so far--nothing fancy, but I'm having a very good time! I even had to skip way ahead to learn how to share them with you. :lol: :lol:

    The color stuff is my favorite function so far! How wonderful to know ahead of time just how something will look!!

    Oh gosh--they came out big. I saved them under the lowest setting for websites/email! Eeek. Sorry, admin!

    I'm so happy for all of you! I don't have EQ6 yet, but am looking forward to getting it. Our traditions changed this year, too, but with extended and blended families, what can you do but be gracious about it all. Besides, a little change occasionally never killed anyone. All that really matters is that we remember the TRUE meaning of Christmas and that out families are health and happy.
