What is a Runtime Error?

Runtime errors are glitches or problems that occur when a computer program is executed. Because a wide range of errors is usually grouped under the collective term of a runtime error, the operating system usually provides some information about the nature of the error that has occurred. The message provides the end user or the technician with some idea of what component has failed to launch properly, and provides a starting point for seeking resolution to the issue.

A runtime error may occur due to some serious corruption within the program, or it could simply be a one time event that can be overcome by simply rebooting the program and starting over. However, when the runtime error continues to appear consistently, that is an indication that a permanent issue exists, and should be addressed as soon as possible.

How Do I Report A Runtime Error?

If you are at work and experience a runtime error with your workstation, your first option is to reboot the machine and see if you experience the same error a second time. It is not unusual for system support people to try this first as a way of clearing out whatever caused the runtime error, so it generally won't hurt to try it yourself. If this doesn't work, then it is time to call for technical support.

In order to assist the support team in dealing with the runtime error, it is a good idea for you to record basic information about the nature of the error. The first component you should make note of is the error message you receive along with the numerical designation of the runtime error. Be sure to copy the text of the message error exactly as it appears on your screen. Do not attempt to summarize the content of substitute words in the text. Runtime error messages are standardized and providing the support team with the correct information will make it much easier to fix the issue. <

Whats Going to Be The Video Game News For 08?

Even if the PS3 came out with a bit of a slow start in 2007 don't let that fool you... the PS3 is just gearing up for a great year with some expected hot releases. Here's a rundown of three games coming out in '08.. EA's NFL Tour, Free Radical Design's HAZE, and Konami's Coded Arms Assault.

NFL Tour

Coming from EA Sport's BIG division is what can be considered a bit of a spin-off of their hit series NFL Street. They've gotten rid of the streets and beaches in favor of larger spectacle arenas. No more playing with barrels and street side walls, you're playing in front of huge crowds with pyrotechnics and the whole 9 yards. There are some advancements in gameplay as well - if a player initiates contact you are given an opportunity to break through the tackle, trip up the receiver or give your hit a little extra "umph". Street players will see the familiar "Gamebreaker" power-ups, and much of the game is left unchanged otherwise but an upgrade on the look of the graphics. This game is expected to drop on January 8th so get ready for it!


Playing as a recruit of a corporate army owned by a large supposedly peace-keeping organization Mantel you are expected to play this game through atleast twice. Why twice? Well once on both sides obviously, this is because playing on Mantel's side your realize that you along with your fellow soliders are randomly pumped up with a drug called Nectar, but this leads to some unexpected consequences. The other time through you take the side of the rebels you so viciously were fighting. With some great looking graphics and AI that apparently doesn't feel useless... this gem is being released stateside January 18t
