One moment, please…

Although attempts are made to make the information in these bulletins accurate and understandable, they are only a guide. Any time you are making changes to Power Broker or to Windows, there is a chance of things going wrong. If you feel something is beyond your abilities or just not quite clear, contact our technical support department or get someone with computer experience to help you.

This webpage is just a tool that we will be using to keep things noted so that should you have a technical question, you have an option to visit here first and do a search. Thank you.

This operation cannot be completed because of dialog or database engine failures.  Please try again
This seems to happen on one template at a time.

Open Windows Explorer, browsed to \bro\word97 folder.  If you find a ~$xxx.doc name of the abbreviated name, delete this document.  These documents are usually created when a word document is having issues saving/retrieving from the server.

Open the good document directly from clicking on the .doc name, and it will give you the ‘options’ ‘remove data header sources’ error, and then I close it.


Try running the form again and it should work fine.

9 Opening Power Broker
Fatal Error:  Exception Code – Error log file:  C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VFP\vfp8err.log
This error occurs after you click on ‘Yes’ when it asks ‘Convert 3.0 resource file to 6.0 Format’
In Windows Explorer, delete foxuser.dbf and foxuser.fpt.  If the system will not allow you to delete these two files because they are being used someone else, this means that the files are locked on your server.  The way to release these files is to go to the server, Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Shared Folders, Open Files, and find/close anyone using foxuser.dbf and foxuser.fpt.
10 Vista – Aero – Display Issues Until Resolved, should you find that you are having a display issue with Vista, please go to Start, Control Panel, Personalization, Appearance, and change from Aero, to Vista Basic, or some other option, and then test.

14 Error 1102
This error occurs when a user i.d. folder is not created.
Open Windows Explorer, browse to your \BRO folder and create a folder that matches the User Code.  In this example the users’ code is GG.  Should you find files in this folder that have the .doc extension, you may delete them and their cousin files.  If it does not allow you to delete the files, a server reboot may be required.
15 Error 202 Usually this means that you are sitting at a computer that does not have the same drive letter as indicated in Utilities, Define Your Company Information, Software Directories.  If you are in an office with 20 people and every desktop PB Icon points to H:\BRO\BROW.EXE but you are sitting at the server and PB is in C:\DATA\BRO\BROW.EXE, then sitting at the server, map a drive letter H back to it’s own C:\DATA directory and create a new Icon on the desktop pointing to H:\BRO\BROW.exe
16 Database is Locked If all users are signed out of Power Broker and are still getting a Database is Locked error, a shut down on the server is required (not just a restart) – that error will usually mean there is a file locked up on the server level.

Exporting to Excel
Database is locked
This happens when you use C:\ drive as the destination directory of your Excel file.  Either create a folder on your C:\ drive and add this to  your path, or direct the file to the \BRO folder on your server since it should have full permissions.  Example:
42 Cannot Locate Visual Foxpro Support Library This usually happens in Terminal Server where permissions are an issue.  The first thing you need to do is go to the Terminal Server and run the \BRO\Workstation.exe.  This will install the needed .dll files in the c:\program files\ common files\powerbroker directory.  You would then move to a workstation, connect through terminal server, and test launching Power Broker.  The next step would be to ensure that the \BRO folders permissions have FULL permissions for everyone.  If that doesn’t work, you would copy the .dll files from the c:\program files\ common files\powerbroker\viscomsoft folder to the c:\windows\system32 folder.  Reconnect backup again and launch Power Broker.
43 After an upgrade, you go to open Customers, Customer and Prospects

71 Black Box – Signature Pad – Third party software may interfere with the Signature Integration by changing an important element of the computers registry.  Should you receive a black box in your form or application, you may need to edit your registry. A WORD OF WARNING – EDITING YOUR REGISTRY MAY DAMAGE YOUR COMPUTER – PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY BEFORE HAND – Once backed up, you would go to Start, Run or Search for regedit.

In your registry, you would browse to this path and ensure that it does indeed say Paint.Picture.


If it says something else, write that down for future reference, and then change it to Paint.Picture.

Should you find that this creates an issue with another program like PhotoShop, you would have to weigh which is more important to you.

If it does indeed say Paint.Picture, close the registry and contact tech support.

Another option is to go to your computer, go to Start, Control Panel,
Programs and Features, and sort the list by ‘Date’. If you notice a ‘new’ and recently added software, it might be getting in the way of the intergration. Uninstall any software that you might not need, reboot and try again. One last thing to try is bring the Signature pad to another computer, install the software by clicking here , plug in the signature pad after the install so Windows doesn’t initialize any auto installation, and then please try again.

73 MS Outlook is running but an error occurred.  Please try again. Sitting at the computer that this is happening to, go to the Windows desktop, right click on the PB4 icon, go to Properties, and then select the Shortcut tab at the top of the screen.  If the target line is a UNC path, then you will need to delete the entire icon, ensure you have a proper mapped drive, and remake your icon.  Example of a UNC path would be (  \\server\data\bro\brow.exe ).  If Power Broker is mapped to P: drive, your target line should be P:\BRO\BROW.EXE .

Step 1) Open Power Broker, log in, go to Tables, User Preferences, At the bottom of the page, click on the ‘Run Workstation’ button, and install.OR

Open Windows Explorer, browse to your \BRO folder, and double click on workstation.exe and install

Step 2)  Start – In the RUN or SEARCH Window, type Regedit and open your computers registry editor.

Navigate to the registry key  ->
HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG -> Software ->  right click on the Power Broker PDF Printer, select permissions.  Full Control needs to be given for the group the user account belongs to.  In some cases, adding ‘Everyone’ to the security has resolved the issue.  Restart your computer and test again.

If after the restart, you get the same error, and you notice the registry didn’t save the changes, you would go back to the registry editor, go to Permissions, click on Advanced, and choose the user to ‘take ownership’ of the folder, and then set the permissions to full.  Restart and test again.

Step 3)  In Windows, go to Start, Settings, Devices, Printers and Scanners.  See the option named “Let Windows manage my default Printer’.  Turn this to ‘OFF’.

Please do this if the above steps do not work:
Go to your \Bro and/or \Bro/PDF folder and do a search for pbpdf.exe and run this file, and then please test again.

NOTE:  These fixes are also good for people that have the message error ‘Broker Management Not Responding’ when trying to use the SCAN feature in Power Broker.
