Re-ran Pinpoint installer (not sure why I had that separately from ACP -- probably an earlier purchase), and the Pinpoint problem is resolved.

Also I am getting the status updates that were missing from the web display last night -- let us call that a fluke for now.

So the remaining issue is still that I have to leave Maxim 5 and/or 6.18 installed in order to not break ACP with the "Runtime Error 13 -- type mismatch" crash.

Thoughts? Once I get this resolved it is time for ACP 8.3 -- upgrades take some time because I have to edit a number of your scripts to put in my changes :-)
