Subject: Re: Can't use DI after windows update




Thank you for quick response, and many suggestions!

It's working again tonight - but I'm starting with simplest suggestion, and
moving all my (many) images to new location. If problem continues
intermittently, I guess I'll just have to work through the options.

I don't like spending money to resolve this, but would installing new MS
Digital Image software be sure to cure problem?
