  • Hi,

    Runtime Error 217 mainly occurs in Windows when you try to open any application or program. This error occurs due to several reasons like malware or virus infections, due to incomplete installation or uninstallation of any program, due to failure in DLL registration, registry error, boot time collisions between two programs and more.

    I suspect it's the mascad compatibility issue, please contact its vender to confirm if it's supported on Windows 10.

  • When you mean MASCAD by Secolink, this seems to be compiled with Delphi (or some old Borland compiler),
    thus"Runtime Error 217" is from the Delphi runtime:
    The meaning of Runtime Error 217

    You could try to run the Software in compatibility mode, or with administrator priviliges.
    Then you can contact Secolink: they should improve their error handling.
