What does "not a valid win32 application" mean?

When you click on "Check for Live Update", the software will check and then download a copy of the latest version from our internet-servers if a new version is available. If, for some reason, the live update does not download completely, then the error "Not a Valid Win 32 application" will arise.

To resolve, click on Start then Run and type explorer.  Click Ok and a window will popup (which is windows explorer).

On the left-hand side,

Click on My Computer
Then click on Local Disk (C:)
Then click on Bankruptcy Case Software 2007

You will see lots of folders and files.  You should see a file that says Version.txt ; delete that file.  Then double-click on the file LiveUpdate.exe and let the software run a live update again.

If this still doesn't work, please let us know and we can guide you through a manual update.

Please do not hesitate to send us an e-mail ( if you have questions, comments or if you come across something that would contribute to this section.
