HI,been using psp9 for a while now,but all of a sudden when i double click on a picture file,psp9 starts up but i get an error message saying windows cannot find the path for the file,please make sure the path is correct.This happens all the time now,the only way i can open picture files is by opening psp9 and manual opening it from there.Any ideas anyone,as its really getting to me.Tryed reinstalling it,but the same problem.Im running xp pro all up to date.Many thanks.:cry: :cry:

Check the file association in the file's properties. Also check the file association within PaintShop Pro to see if anything is screwy. That's all I can think of for now. Maybe later when I'm at home. I'm using PaintShop Pro 10 now so I haven't use 9 in a bit. But I still have it installed on one of my Daughter's machines, so I'll check on it.

If you have not done so already try resetting everything back to defaults.

File > Preferences > Reset Preferences

Check the boxes (I would do all) for what you want to reset.

I've had the same problem since I started using Paint Shop Pro X so I just open psp then browse for the file I want instead.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
