Execution terminated unexpectedly error


Recommended Posts

Almost every time I use manual backup (Retrospect Express 6.5) I get the following messages:


"Retrospect has encountered a serious error." Then I send in the error report. Then,


"Exeuction terminated unexpectedly, possibly due to a power failure or system crash."


However, my system hasn't crashed (usually). I'm sitting here watching it.


What could cause this and how can I get Retrospect to continue to back up?

Hi Ellen,


One of the most common causes of repeated application crashes is damage to the configuration files. You can remove these files from C:/Documents and Settings/All Users/Applicate Data/Retrospect. The files will be named 'config65.dat' and 'config65.bak'. Move them to a different directory, launch Retrospect, enter your license code if it prompts you and then run a test backup.
