I have searched everywhere for an answer to this. I am surprised that I have found nothing that relates.
I have a older Dell with Win2k pro installed. I share the computer with the rest of my family, so the default user intentionally does not have Administrator Privledge. If I try to use Plextools while logged in as that default user, I get several annoying error boxes titled “Plextool” and the text:
"An invalid argument was encountered."
Once I acknowledge this error twice, I get into Plextools, & The program is unusable.
I can work around the problem by modifying the shortcut that launches Plextools to “Run as differant user”. This causes a login dialog to appear, and I can enter the admin password.
This is very annoying. It also means that I cannot place a “plextools” shortcut in the startup folder. This problem started the day I installed the Plextor PX-716A Plextools software (version 2.32a).
Please, if you are gong to offer help, please don’t make suggestions about how to set up multiple accounts. I already know how to do that. Setting up multiple accounts would create more annoyances than the original problem.
