I am receiving the following error when I try to run the FRED software:
Access Violation at address 004C5C90 in module "NED.EXE". Read of address 00000054
A fatal error has occurred. Please notify the proctor. HTTP/1.1 300 error.
How can I correct this problem? This error code usually indicates virus protection software is blocking access to our software. Please disable your virus protection temporarily, whether it is McAfee, Norton, Windows, etc., and then try running the software again.
Additionally, if you have file-sharing software on your computer, such as uTorrent, this may be the source of the problem. Right click on the uTorrent icon in the system tray and choose 'Exit' to turn off the software.

If this cannot solve your problem , then go to official website page and look at FAQ. Good luck ....
