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 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.

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 video opens a window but does not play.||
If you own product older than August 2017, the following issue was discovered:
The video is an old format which is
not natively supported by browsers and it uses an outdated method for playback.

installing a browser plugin, but that is no longer developed for Windows.
|The video plays, but there is no audio.|
|The video image is black, but I can hear the audio.|
|When I click on a video link it asks me to download the file, but I cannot open it.|
