To help, it would be good to know what exact product/version/year of "Reckon Accounts Personal" you are running.   And in the LOGS you have,  does it mention the full name/size/date - at least the name, of the missing DLL file it is concerned with.    Email the log file to gaz@alchester.com.au  if unsure what file or message is of value here.

Gary,

I found a fix! Thanks for your help over the phone. After using Revo to trace all leftovers i still got nowhere. Tried opening the setup file as administrator and still no success except that it gave me a dialogue stating that a previous version was found??
As you advised I tried re-installing 2017. So I decided to go to my OneDrive files and found the 2017 install folders that I had backed up. When I tried to install 2017 I only had three options, Repair, modify or uninstall, so I chose to uninstall to see what would happen. This went no problems. Went back to the 2018 install file and hey presto! we're back in business.
Thanks again for the suggestions
terrific outcome!    Possibly a registry entry was left behind, given no trace of folders/files and no mention of 2018 in Control Panel.  Good feedback for others, Stephen.   Glad you're running again.  Ain't it great to have backups!
