(2) error 2869 resolution. 


This is a permissions and rights issue common to most applications installed with Microsoft Installation .MSI files in Windows Vista, Windows 7 & 8:

1. Create a folder on your local C:\ drive called LTFIX so that the path C:\LTFIX is visible from Windows Explorer.

2. Click here to download and save the file LTFIX.BAT to the location C:\LTFIX. This can be done by right clicking and selecting Save Target As.

3. Click here to download and save the Label Tasks installation file again to the location C:\LTFIX

4. On your desktop, using Windows Explorer, navigate to the folder C:\LTFIX

5. Right click on the file called LTFIX.BAT and select the option to Run As Administrator. This should start the installation process for Label Tasks 1.3

6. Once Label Tasks 1.3 is installed, you should see the Label Tasks 1.3 icon on your desktop. If this is the case then double click on it to start the application. If double clicking on the icon presents a further problem, then try right clicking on the icon itself and then selecting the option to Run As Administrator. Doing this once should register with the operating system the fact that the application should always be run this way in future.

Additional installation guidance :

Some of the later releases of MS-Windows do not include particular DLL files which enable applications like this to run. Please click here to download and install the DLL files which are required to print labels.


(2)  Running Label Tasks on Apple Mac with OSX Operating System.

You can run Label Tasks on an intel processor based Apple Mac with OSX by downloading and installing a cross platform application utility called Boot Camp 3.0

Boot Camp allows you to run a lot of Windows XP OS applications and will need to be installed before you can install the .NET framework and then Label Tasks. The operation should take no more than 45 minutes (depending on your internet connection speed) and should allow you to successfully install and use Label Tasks.

Aside from installing Boot Camp, you might need to install a suitable driver for your printer in order to allow Label Tasks to successfully communicate with your device for printing labels.

There are five steps involved in this solution.

1. Download and install Boot Camp on your Apple Mac (about 270 MB)

2. Reboot your Apple Mac such that the Windows Operating System can be installed

3. You will need to have a Windows XP installation CD to hand in order to perform the install of Windows. Home edition of Windows XP will be sufficent here..

4. Download and install the .NET framework (about 20 MB)

5. Download and install Label Tasks

Additional Boot Camp support is available from the Apple website and can be accessed by clicking here.


(3) Importing data from other applications (Excel) using demo freeware version.

This is not possible - we can, however, take your Excel spreadsheet data and import it for you. We will be more than happy to complete this service for you upon purchase of a Label Tasks License.

Additional Boot Camp support is available from the Apple website and can be accessed by clicking here.


(4) Alternative method for downloading demo from this site.

Simply right click on the link for the demo and select 'Save Target As' and then enter the file name 'Setup.msi' - this will cause the install file for the demo software to be saved at the location you specify with that file name (usually on the windows desktop.)

You may otherwise be experiencing difficulties with downloading this file because of your browser settings.

For an example of how this is achieved, visit the link below on our resources website FAQ to see screenshot illustrations for downloading the install file for the Label Tasks demo software.


(5) Uninstall LabelTasks software.

Removing the software from your computer does not require any special action or third party tools - regardless of what is currently advertised.

This is a one step action which is used to remove all legitimate software applications.

Click 'start' on your desktop and select 'Control Panel', then select 'Add/Remove Software' and 'Remove' LabelTasks software.

LabelTasks software does not contain properties which make this action impossible in any Windows environment from Windows XP through to Windows 10


(6) Availability of templates

Templates differing from those which come as standard with the software are available upon request, click here to find out more.


(7) Mobile device compatibility

This software has been tested and verified on a mobile device capable of running Windows XP or VISTA / 7



(8) Running LabelTasks on Apple Mac OSX 10.5 or later

You can use a software product called CrossOver to do this.

CrossOver is used to run thousands of popular software titles on this platform. Click here for more information.


(9) Retrieving deleted or overwritten label documents

Should you inadvertently lose label information by deleting or overwriting label documents, you should be able to reclaim this information in the [OldLabels] folder in your LabelTasks folder.

You are asked by the software if you really want to overwrite an existing label document with another one with the same name.

The files which reside at [OldLabels] will have the same file name as the document you want to retrieve - for example, if you have a document called [TinnedFruit.lab] then this will be backed up as [TinnedFruit.lab.bak] - Simply rename this file by right clicking on it and selecting 'rename' - remove the '.bak' part of the file name in order to be able to access this information in LabelTasks.

You are encouraged to back up all your label documents on a regular basis, this can be achieved by simply copying the [Labels] folder and pasting it in a backup folder
