Hi Sal. Can you look in the folder containing the Tux Paint executable
file ("TuxPaint.exe"... probably in C:\Program Files\Tux Paint) and
see if you can find files named either:
If so, please send the contents of it/them back to the list.
If not, then you may want to open an MSDOS prompt on your system,
and then "cd" to the folder containing TuxPaint.exe and run it there,
and see if you get any output.
Did the _same_ version of Tux Paint work on your system before, and
then suddenly stop working? Or had you upgraded to the latest Tux Paint?
Did you change anything about your system (e.g., install new software)
between the time Tux Paint worked, and now?
Thanks and good luck! Happy new year, too!
