WPWIN8 caused an invalid page fault in m

By damianlukban ·
I have been trying to install Word Perfect Suite 8 on a Compaq Armada M700 laptop. I am not able to launch the Word Perfect application and each time get this error: "Program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down." I have uninstalled and installed it several times, even downloaded the latest service pack (7) from Corel, but still get this persistent illegal operation error. One of my collegues told me to remove Microsoft NetMeeting if it was installed. There is no NetMeeting!! Help!!! I hope someone out there has the solution. Thanks!

Uninstall your printer. I have seen many times a PC would have problems opening WordPerfect because of the printer installed. Uninstall it then try to open up WordPerfect.

What I have had to do then is re-install the printer and another one (different printer, like fax or adobe pdf writer). Make the second printer, the default printer.

Change the Windows default printer driver or install a new one from the "Add Printer" Wizard.
Ensure that:
The above errors occurs in the following situations:
1. A fax driver is selected as the default printer.
2. A printer driver has not beeninstalled in Windows.
3. The printer driver has become damaged.
4. A Primavera Plot(tm) printer driver is the default windows printer.
5. A 16 bit driver is being used.

The way to tell if a 16 bit driver is being used is to go to Start | Settings | Printers. Right click on the printer driver, and left click on properties. If there are 2 tabs (not including a possible Sharing tab for network printers) you are using a 16 bit driver. If there are 4 or more tabs (also not including the Sharing tab) a 32 bit driver is in use.

As WordPerfect is loading, the program looks to the default printer driver for information on formatting the document screen. If Windows 9x does not have a default printer installed or if the default printer driver has become a dama

Thank you so much for your response!! I followed each step and it worked! I truly appreciate the thoroughness of your response and most especially the explanation that followed. People are always ready to give you the "what" to do (steps) but seldom the "why". Again, thanks so much for your help. You have made my first experience posting a question to this forum really worthwhile and exciting.

I agree with these guys. Several times I have seen this when the default printer is set to Microsoft Fax (or whatever it is called). If it still doesn't start, make sure you close everything running including anything in the Systray and try running WP again. Perhaps something is running in the background that WP doesn't like. Good luck!
