You would probably be better asking this question in the Spoon Studio forums here...

... that error is not a Windows one.

I am waiting for a solution from spoon forum. Meanwhile I distinctly remember that only a Windows 7 update made it inoperable. I was running fine. After a Windows 7 update , the PC rebooted and I wanted to continue with my work in Portable Minitab but it did not respond. Also the windows update modified several registry keys while rebooting

Thank you,
Searched your thread at Spoon studio forum and followed the advice to uninstall the windows update that caused the problem.. I know it's not a real solution but at least I can keep on working until I recompile the program with a newer version of spoon studio.
