Hi All,

The error message below came up the other day when I tried to run my 'Collins Electronic Dictionary'.

I've deleted the 'CEDT' folder in which it was stored and used a regcleaner to sweep the registery.

I then rebooted my PC and reinstalled the program...went to run it and got the same message.

COEDWIN caused a general protection fault

This program has run well on my PC, I've made no changes to the in the last few weeks and when I've had this message before, (about a year ago)I just deleted and reinstalled the program as I have just done...and it worked.

Using win98se.

Any thoughts on how to solve this 'slight' problem would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

thanks woodchip,

the website you gave suggested deleting everything from the registery and rebooting and provided me with a list of what to look for.

They also pointed out that the program had been sold to another company and gave me their web address.

I contacted them and the advice from the technical site was 'go buy a new one'. Mine was purchased in 1998 and guess what the Registration card is still in the box it came in. So no more help was given. I should have sent the paperwork off but for some reason didn't.
