A: "Advantage Plus configuration file is already in use. Click the version shown on the windows task bar to re-activate."

The error message you are getting is caused when the program cannot open the file, gail.def, because it is marked Read Only or because the file has been truncated to zero length.

Use windows explorer to locate the file c:\gh\gail.def. Then right-click on it, select properties, and make sure it is not marked as read only or as a system file. If it is, change those settings and the program should then work. If that does not fix the problem, try deleting that file. Then run the program. The file will be recreated.

If you do not see the file in the folder, try making sure that all files and extensions are showing on your computer.
