Troubleshooting

Welcome to the troubleshooting section. We hope that the following information will help you to quickly diagnose and fix your problem.

Please check the minimum system requirements listed here and make sure that your system meets the minimum requirements. You should also check and make sure you have the current versions of Apple® QuickTime®, Macromedia® FlashPlayer® and Adobe® Acrobat Reader® installed on your system. If you're not sure which version of these programs you have, you can always install them again. The programs will install over the older versions of the software and set themselves up to work with your current web browser automatically.

Registration is now an optional process. In order to be eligible for technical support, you must register the CD-ROM within 21 days of purchase. If we cannot verify that you purchased the product, know how to contact you, or what operating system you use, we cannot offer technical support. We do not share your secure registration information with anybody, it is only used by TriggerPointRelief.com to verify your purchase if the need for technical support arises.

Windows XP Service Pack 2 Internet Explorer 6 Users At the beginning of September 2004 Microsoft® released a free update for Windows XP called Service Pack 2 with advanced security technologies. The most noticeable difference between Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2 is how Internet Explorer 6 handles active content (i.e. videos and flash). When Internet Explorer loads any active content, a yellow bar appears at the top of the window saying that it has blocked active content. By clicking on the bar it will bring up a small window giving you three options. The option you want to select is the top option that says "Allow Blocked Content" This will only allow blocked content for triggerpointrelief.com and not other websites. For an in-depth guide with pictures demonstrating how to allow blocked content click here.


I can't register my CD, what could be the cause?

PC & Mac

For the CD to register it needs access to the internet.

If you are using a dial-up connection please make sure that you dialed in and connected to the internet.

For broadband (i.e. Cable Modems, DSL) connections you should automatically be connected to the internet. If you continue to experience problems connecting to the internet please contact your ISP for assistance.

My computer asks me to register, even though I already have.

A note about cookies: The Pain Relief with Trigger Point Self-Help CD-ROM uses a cookie to verify that you have registered or skipped the registration process. If your browser is set to block all cookies or if you delete the cookie, you will be asked to register again. You only need to register once to be eligible for technical support, and so you should use the button marked "Continue with CDROM."

Safari - At this time, Safari does not allow cookies to be set from your computer. As a result, you will be asked to register each time you start the software. You only need to register once to be eligible for technical support, and so you should use the button marked "Continue with CDROM."

Safari will work with Mac's but probably not Chrome.

The CD ROM doesn't run on my computer.  It may have to do with the way your computer options are set up.  Open Internet Explorer.  Go to "Tools," "Internet Options," "Advanced," "Security," and scroll down to and checkmark "Allow Active Content from CD's to run on my computer." 
The pain finder tool doesn't appear on the front page.

Flash player must be installed on your computer in order for the tool to work. To install Adobe® Flash® Player click the button below.

Install Adobe Flash Player

  1. When you choose to download Flash the first window that pops up will give you an option to "Open with" or "Save to Disk". Make sure "Save to Disk" is selected then click the "OK" button.
  2. If you've set your browser up to download to a specified folder you can skip this step. Otherwise a "save" window will pop up and ask you where you want to save your download. To make the Flash download easy to find, select the desktop icon from the left of the window so it will download the program to your desktop. Then click the "Save" button to begin downloading the file.
  3. Once the program is done downloading, close out of your browser and find the downloaded file on your desktop. It's name should be "FlashWin.exe" if you are using the disc CD-ROM installer. If you downloaded it directly from Macromedia's website the file name will be something like "Install Flash Player.exe". Double click the icon to start the installation process.
  4. When the first window pops up just click the "Next" button and it should begin the installation process.
  5. The installation process should be fairly quick and when it's finished it will close the install window and you're ready.

If you are still having difficulty installing FlashPlayer you can find additional help resources on Adobe's Flash Player Support website.

The Video and audio aren't synchronized. PC

If your computer is an Intel® 486 or older, the videos may not play correctly. The system requirements are for a Pentium® Processor. If you choose to purchase a product that your system does not support, you do so at your own risk, and your money will not be refunded.

You keep getting a pop-up message "Do you trust this content to connect to the Internet?" This has to do with your Adobe Flashplayer security settings. To fix this issue: Over the Pain Guide (the body with the pain regions), right-click, and you will get a popup where you can choose "Global Settings."  Follow the steps below.  When you are done, you will need to close and re-open your browser for the changes to take effect.
