That's it Russ, the program disappears & shortly after that the "Program closed unexpectedly" appears wanting me to send info to Microsoft which I do not do and then the FTM.EXE disappears from the Task List. Oh yeah, and the event log has the entries pointing to a null value pass between FTM.exe and dot net 4. Thanks, Frank
