Every time I click on "Send Invitation" for remote
assistance with Windows OE the same message keeps on
coming up saying:

"A program could not start. Please try Again"

This is with OE and IE running complete with a broadband
connection.

Any help would be appreciated

Here's a past posting by Jeffery Randow which should solve this:

Let us know which solution did the trick, or come back if neither does it?

Hi Bill:

The first solution "sessmgr -service" seem to do the
trick. I managed to send a "INVITATION" - but now I will
have to wait for a reply. Now if I only knew why this
worked I would be a whole lot smarter.

The second solution (which I tried first) in "Internet
Option" was set propperly to OE!!

Thanks for your help

I've got to confess I've no idea what that does or why you needed to do it!
Maybe Jeffery will hit me with a cluestick.

However, I'm glad it did. The communication chain in Remote Assistance can
be a bit of a challenge--opening port 3389 TCP in routers involved helps, as
does those routers being UPnP enabled, and having the UPnP services enabled
on the machines involved.
