  • This is a common issue among computer users when a power failure occurred. Running programs when a power failure takes place might cause your programs to be corrupt. In the worse case, the operating system itself might develop some problems due to program files that are running and not properly released by its handles.
  • You can perform the check disk in an attempt to recover lost or corrupted files due to power failure. Uninstalling and reinstalling the application wont help because there are pieces of files that is written in the registry so make sure after uninstalling you have to run Registry Cleaner programs which can be downloaded in the internet.
  • You may also try to run the installation set up again without uninstalling. Find the installation set up and then install. This will give you two choices if available. It could be repair or remove; chose the repair instead so the application will recopy essential files needed to run the program.

Since this problem only happens when you are doing the tasks simultaneously [doing the import task while you are still viewing one report], why not try downloading the IF Import Kit so you will have better results and to save time as well.

The kit includes a PDF file that contains the best practices about importing of IF files and its most common pitfalls.

The kit to download is in a ZIP file so you need to have WinZip or any other file extractor to extract the contents of the zip file.
