Q.  I get an “Administrative permissions are required to update CAPS” error; what should I do?
A:  When you have the Legacy installation of CAPS you need Admin Rights to open CAPS after each update. In some cases you do not have these admin rights on your computer so you need to contact your IT department to update your PC (to allow the CAPS update).

An alternative MSI installation that lets you determine when you take the CAPS update is now available. Contact us at to obtain the MSI Installer.

Q: I get a “Could not open Job... Unknown file error” when trying to open my job file. How do I resolve this error?
A:  You most likely have a corrupt mark on the job file. Please send the job file to us at and we will check the file and remove the corrupt mark. Then you will need to open the job file and recreate the corrupt mark.
