    Error code 20 - SOLVED

    I use Pastel Xpress V11 - earlier when attempting to open the programme, I received an error code 20.

    For the life of me I cannot find where to restart the Pervasive engine (assuming that's the problem).

    Any advice? My pastel reseller is not available today to assist, and I didn't want to re-install pervasive unnecessarily.

    Thanks in advance.

    Find Pervasive in your 'Programs" and "Start Engine"

    But Pervasive should start automatically upon PC startup.

    Is there no pervasive icon in your task bar ? If so just right click on this and you should be able to start and stop the engine.

    That option was not available. I have however re-installed Pervasive, everything is working the way it should now.

    Well done !


    Just a tip...................Do not simply uninstall Pervasive. Use "Pervasive System Analyzer" to do the uninstall as normal uninstall does not remove all the elements and can be a problem afterwards .

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
