The program has a licence error message on startup
Licence files are unique for each computer and cannot be used on a computer other than the one it was created for, or for the version of Poles ‘n’ Wires it is intended for.
If the licence file is corrupted or you installed the wrong licence file you will not being able to start the software. You will probably see an error message.
You need to remove the licence file then request a new one. Follow these steps:

- go to the program directory (default location is c:\polesnwires)
