server busy box

Specs: Windows 98se
I have a heavy duty diagnostic program I run for caterpillar engines that uses a cable attached to my printer port. It locks up if i attempt to change screens during the programs operation. this is the only program the error message has ever occurred on. It pops up server busy(retry/cancel) options only. if i hit rety it only pops back up again continually. I have to ctrl/alt/del to continue. I have several heavy duty programs I use and none of the others have this problem and they use the same hook up cables. Any suggestions. toshiba sat 2454 333mhz aprox 10yrs old and this problem has always beern there with this program. I can't reload program for cat no longer will issue a new auth key code.

Here are some things to try not necessarily in the following order. You decide that.

If there is a printer connected as well, disconnect it.

Look at the event viewer for errors.

Open the task manager. End processes that you think might be causing the error.

Go into the BIOS and change the com port, if that option is available.

Look for IRQ conflicts.

Try it in safe mode.

Look for command line options to start the program instead of clicking on it.
