  • Echo VBScab's points, not enough info to comment...before even attempting to trouble shoot you need to give us step by step what is happening and what errors occur when... - wynnem 4 years ago

You're a developer and you're asking a question like this?!? And with soooooooooooooo much information, too, about what the program was written in, what you've done so far to troubleshoot the issue...

Let me be kind, though, and say "ProcMon". Oh and "Dependency Walker".

  • Thank you VBScab. You see, we still have lots to learn.
    Please allow me to refrase. we do get the reports, but can not backup it to Excel file. - avihe 4 years ago

>can not backup it to Excel file
Still utterly useless as a pointer to what the problem might be, really, isn't it?

Do you get an error message? Have you used ProcMon to at least *try* to determine what the machine is doing? What have you done so far to troubleshoot the issue?  Information! Information! Information!
