PC Anywhere - cannot start service

By dcoyle ·
Has anyone seen this error message before, on trying to start PC Anywhere (both 9.x and 10.x versions):
No object was specified. Maybe because you are starting Host for the first time, using Services Control Panel Applet.
To start try:
1) Specify the name of the Be a Host file (*.BHF) in start parameters for the Host, using Services Control Panel Applet.
2) Start Host from PC Anywhere manager.
3) Open a Be a Host file in Explorer.

Notes to above: I believe I could start the services, no problem up to recently. After installing VNC (a free Remote Session utility) this may have started happening. I uninstalled VNC. After that, and a re-boot, I got the above eror message (still).
I tried no.2 above to no avail. No's 1 and 3 I'm not sure how to do...
Any help appreciated. Thx in advance!

I have not seen the message before, so not much help there. If you have any *.bhf files on the machine, you can go to settings, control panel, administrative tools, services and highlight PC Anywhere. Right click and choose properties. The bottombox allows you to set parameters, you could try entering the path of one of your .bhf files.
