Error 42 IPM Issues

"Error 42 (IPM)" when launching ROBOTC after installing ROBOTC

Error 42 IPM.gif


Solution

This error is caused when Windows XP or Windows VISTA does not have the appropriate rights to initialize the activation software. To fix this issue, you will need to run the application "As an Administrator." Once you have followed these steps once, you can use ROBOTC as a normal user (without Administrative Privileges) without issue.


Windows VISTA

Step 1: Right Click on the ROBOTC icon. Select "Run as Administrator"

Step 2: Windows VISTA will prompt you to give Administrative Access to this application. Select "Allow" to continue.

Step 2. At the "Run As" dialog, select the "Following User" dialog and enter the user name and password of a user with administrative rights.

ROBOTC should now open to the Licensing Screen. You will not have to repeat these steps again to use ROBOTC in the future.
