Hello Experts,

Recently I upgraded my system with new software Microsoft Equation 3.0. The installation and setup went pretty well and good without any problem. However, the problem triggered when I start to work with it. I got an error message ‘this program has performed an illegal operation and will be shutdown. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor’. Please help me to solve this problem. Thanks.

This problem is occurring when you’re utilizing MS Word 97 with Adobe Type Manager Deluxe v4.0.

In order to resolve this issue,

  1. Exit Word.
  2. Start Notepad.
  3. Open “C:Windowssystem.ini” for editing. As this is a part of the Windows, you should make a backup of this file first to avoid any type of accidental problems.
  4. From the “[Boot]” section, find out these lines:
    SYSTEM.DRV=ATMSYS.DRV
    ATM.SYSTEM.DRV=SYSTEM.DRV
  5. At the start of the lines, add a semicolon like these:
    ;SYSTEM.DRV=ATMSYS.DRV
    ;ATM.SYSTEM.DRV=SYSTEM.DRV
  6. From a new line it “[Boot]” section, type this line:
    SYSTEM.DRV=SYSTEM.DRV

    Now, your “[Boot]” section should look like this:

    [Boot]

         ;SYSTEM.DRV=ATMSYS.DRV

         ;ATM.SYSTEM.DRV=SYSTEM.DRV

        SYSTEM.DRV=SYSTEM.DRV

  1. Save the file.
  2. Restart your PC.

Now, your problem shouldn’t bother you again
