The problem seems to have gone away. I think there has been some network
problems, as others have been complaining about various problems.
Thanks for the advice Dennis, if I have more trouble I will try your ideas.

ideas:
uninstall your printer driver
or change the default printer driver to something else

i doubt that this is a license issue

or alternatively maybe it has something to do with loaded libraries

after closing protel and rebooting try moving one or both 
of these files
ADVPCB99SE.INI
&
CLIENT99SE.rcs

to some other folder
(they are in \WINNT)

i am pretty sure (not positive) that it will create these files if they
are not found

if it works you will have to set up some stuff again, but it's not too
bad
