MFC42.DLL error
MFC42.DLL is a common windows file. Nearly every program that is Microsoft® Windows®-based applications has to write to that file. In an ideal world all the programs would simply write to it and leave it alone. Unfortunately, many programs often replace the file. If a program of that sort was installed after ours then that file would be missing the information for our program. Often times doing a search on your computer for the newest modified date and putting it into the WindowsSystem directory works to fix the problem. There are other times where you will need to uninstall and reinstall our software. In the worst case scenario you could get an updated file from Microsoft®, placing it in the WindowsSystem directory. Then reinstalling our software.

If you are unsure of how to do any of the above please contact Microsoft® for further assistance.

The Indicators in the Lower Right Corner of the Program Turn Red ( status of nodata )
When the 2 green OK indicators turn red, it means there is something wrong with your connection. It can indicate whether someone else is using your account, you have a bad user name and password entered, or if your internet connection went down.

If the problem suddenly happens, first thing to check is your internet connection. Can you browse to various web pages? If not, you should contact your Internet Service Provider.

If you CAN surf the web, there is still a chance that the problem resides with your ISP. It's possible that the route your Internet Service uses to get to our servers is either timing out (heavy Internet traffic) or something is interfering with that path. First off, in the event we are having technical difficulties, please check our System Status page.

The next troubleshooting step is to re-establish your Internet connection by shutting down your PC, resetting your modem, waiting a few seconds, then restarting your PC and signing on to eSignal again. 
If the problem persists, please review KB Article 1301 on further troubleshooting your Internet connection.
