AutoPIPE report icon appears on the task bar but the report viewer is not visible on screen, how to reset the report viewer open location?
AutoPIPE's Report Viewer (APIPViewer) reads hard coded information from one of the programming text files to establish the location where the window will appear. If the X & Y location values are larger than the current viewing area, an icon may appear in the task bar but the viewer will be displayed out of view. Use the following procedure to reset the Report Viewer opening location.
1. Close any running instances of AutoPIPE
2. Run %appdata%
