Well if anyone is interested, I uninstalled the script, repeated following the instructions and re-installed the software and still the same problem remains.
To repeat what I said before, I didn't change anything to stop it working - it just started showing red crosses one day right out of the blue. Very poor support from here by the way and I think you have lost a customer here.
I paid vbadvanced in good faith for a years worth of support and upgrade. It s transferred to you and it seems that is nul and void. Guess I'll start looking for a more reliable and better supported script.
