Network errors are typically caused by having an outdated copy of Turbo Lister installed on your computer or by a configuration issue with your personal Firewall. To update your copy of Turbo Lister you will need to uninstall and reinstall the program (for instructions, see Installing Turbo Lister).
Having outdated versions of certain programs may cause problems installing and updating Turbo Lister 1, as well as problems reading, and writing Turbo Lister 1 database files. These problems have been corrected in Turbo Lister 2! If you are experiencing these issues, it is highly recommended that you download and install Turbo Lister 2 (for instructions, see Installing Turbo Lister)
If you do not wish to install Turbo Lister 2 at this time, you may need to download and install MDAC 2.8 and MS JET files, available from the Microsoft download Web site in order to resolve your issue.
