Ami Pro is MS-DOS Software, XP does not have MS-DOS sub-system, you need a later version:

I was and have been running Ami Pro 3.1 with Windows XP Professional without a problem for a number of years without a problem until two weeks ago. I am not sure what happened to cause the general protection fault in the AMIFONT.DLL module.

I also have MS Office 2007 that I have tried and can open some of my Ami Pro documents in, but the Ami Pro document loses its format, especially when there are graphics or tables in the document, and I have quite a few documents that I need to keep in the original format.

If that is the case then I suggest you review the updates you have installed since the last time Ami Pro worked. Find them in Control Panel> add/ remove software. Be sure to check the box to show updates.

If you can't determine what an update was for google it by KB# or name. You can selectively remove updates. It is odd you were able to run that program. Is it installed in the root directory or in programs?

Googling Ami Pro 3.1 also may yield alternatives that CAN open your existing files.

I am guessing it is installed in the root directory of my C drive. When I go to add and remove programs, Ami Pro does not appear as a program. When I click on my computer and the C drive, Ami Pro and Ami Pro Old appear as folders.

I used to have an older computer and when I got a new computer, my hardware person moved the programs and files that I wanted from my old computer on to this computer, which is why I guess I have an Ami Pro and Ami Pro old folder appearing on my C drive. As mentioned, I have been able to use Ami Pro on the computer for at least a year if not longer, until recently, so running it on Windows XP Pro was apparently, not the initial problem.

I have Googled AMIFONT.DLL repair and found several sites that offered .dll repair software. There were also some sites that offered files for font management, but I was not sure what I needed to download and try. I have Norton Utilities on this computer and did a registry scan and repair, as well as cleaned the files, hoping this might help solve the problem, but has not.

I guess I may have to begin removing updates and software as you suggested unless someone comes up with another suggestion.

Thanks for following up with me on this. I already have the Ami332.cnv file on my computer and can open the Ami Pro files in my MS Word 2007, which solves the dilemma of opening text files. However, when open my Ami Pro documents that have graphics, tables, or charts, the graphics, tables, and charts do not appear.

I am wondering if deleting and then re-installing the original AMIFONT.DLL file will resolve the problem.
