Hi Abid546,

I suggest that you make your IP in automatic command before you run it. So you don’t all worry about the compatibility in your system, when you used automatic command it goes fine as long as you know what the system are running for.

If does not work try to uninstall the application that you installed in your system. Sometimes the application was not compatible in your system. That cause of the error that you have had now.

Or as you can see and understand the message box. You noticed what meaning in that message. Try to check your application before you run it.

If not you can contact your administrative support for further information about that issue.
