Belarc will not open

  swapper 09:33 23 Feb 2006

I have used Belarc in the past on my PC,
I now find, after installing it again that it will not open.

It initially opened in Notepad.
I now get the message "we recommend that you use HyperTerminal as your Telnet Programme" Yes or NO.

I have tried to resolve this problem. no luck
My PC is used as a server for testing. is this what is causing me a problem?

If I open the file with a programme called HTML-Kit I can see the result from Belarc.

Any ideas please?

rawprawn, thanks,it looks as if I may have to, but I cannot understand why this problem has occurred?

Les, thanks for that, I have tried as you suggested but got the same response, I will go to Belarc support if there is one.
If I get a result I will post here.

Les, I mailed Belarc twice both to the USA and the UK. but did not get a response, not good at all.

I will leave it for a while and try again.

Thanks anyway

Just after I made my comment, I went back into
The Belarc Folder - Belarc/Advisor/System/tmp/
here were two html files, Home and Licence,
within the properties of each I found that they were opening (or attemtping to open) with Hyper Terminal Applet? I changed it to open with Internet explorer and Bingo!! it is running fine now.
