NT and 'error reading key data'

If you get the error:
PP015: error reading key data
and you have an old ASPAN 3 (or TASK 2) Hardlock Key and you are trying to install the program under Windows NT, here is the solution for your problem:

  1. install PARTNER/ASPAN on to a PC with Windows 95 or 98 operating system.
  2. Run Aspan at least once.
  3. Make a backup of the "C:\Aspan4" directory, including all the subdirectories, from the Win 95/98 PC to the Win NT PC. You may use the network if available or a parallel or serial cable or you may use diskettes.
  4. Restore the previous backup of the "C:\Aspan4" directory, including all the subdirectories, on to the NT PC.
  5. Install again PARTNER/ASPAN on to the NT PC, overwriting the restore.
  6. After these operations, you will be able to run PARTNER/ASPAN on the NT PC
