It is an internal error which sometimes is caused by a no longer stable installation. If you have been using the program for quite a while then a corrupted file might have caused the error. If you upgraded your operating system, make sure the new operating system is still supported because sometimes users don’t tend to check if their programs are still supported on the new platform after the upgrade.

Unfortunately, if you are using an operating system higher than Microsoft Windows XP such as Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, you will not be able to use and will never work because these operating systems are not supported. For Paint Shop Pro 8, it supports Windows 98 Service Pack 2, Windows 98 Second Edition Service Pack 1, Windows Millennium, Windows NT 4 Service Pack 6a, Windows 2000, and Windows XP.

To make sure you are using a most suitable version for your operating system, download the latest version from PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate. It supports all x86 and x64 versions of Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

Since I think you are using Paint Shop Pro 8 on an unsupported operating system, instead of downgrading your operating system to Microsoft Windows XP, just upgrade to PaintShop Pro X6 Ultimate. This is way much better than Paint Shop Pro 8.

You just need to reset the Preferences in Paintshop Pro. Just simply go to File and then click on Preferences and then Reset. It will restore your preferences to its original state. Also, you can go to Control Panel and then search for the Adobe Photoshop Pro or PSP10 depending on your version and then check if there is a Support Information option and then click on it and select the Repair option. Follow the on-screen instructions to fix this.
