Is there an upgrade for Parsons Technology Announcements? I have been using version 6.0 without any problems on Windows XP Service Pack 3. However, a couple of months ago, I was no longer able to start the program. It would hang and I would get a message that the 16 bit subsystem was unstable and had to close, or something similar to that. I tried installing it on another machine running the same OS and it works just fine. However, that is not the computer I use all the time. I purchased the Photo Shop Suite because it said it could import projects from other applications, however, even though they both use the same card extension .car, I cannot import. I would much rather use Announcements, as I could do so much with it. Is there a fix for the program? Even if I could export my projects to a format that Photo Shop could open, it would be helpful. Any and all suggestions would be helpful.

There is no fix to the application since it was discontinued. The best thing to do is to take advantage of the compatibility features of Windows XP. Make sure to have installed all the runtime libraries needed by the application. OCX files need also to be there. If you install Visual Basic 6 Runtime, everything should be fine.
