accpac 6.1a Starts then Closes

accpac 6.1a Starts then Closes

I have accpac 6.1a and am having trouble. I couldn't print to my hplaserjet6P. When I tried it said system performed an illegal operation. So I reloaded accpac and loaded the latest service pack sm990205 and now i open accpac it shows me the version screen the accpac closes automatically. Accpac ran fine other than printing before I reinstalled accpac. Can you use the net use command for local printers and if so what is it. net use lpt1 ???????
Any clues would be appriciated.

RE: accpac 6.1a Starts then Closes

You can map local printers in Windows 2k and XP. First Share the printer and the issue this command:

net use lpt1: \\computername\sharename /persistent:yes

where computer name is the local computer' name.

Did you get beyond that already?  I'm having asimilar "Accpac immediately closing" issue with 5.0a and Terminal Services.  I did not do the install and I'm wondering if it was installed incorrectly.
