    This could be similar to the polymer change wizard erroring out immediately
after starting it. I've notice this almost always happens if it is run with Data
Extractor open. If I close Data Extractor and Data Collection. Then reopen Data
Collection and run the polymer change wizard, I never have this error.
    My problems with regenerations seemed to be caused by a bum polymer pump my
machine was shipped with. We nursed it through about 1000 runs before our service
engineer took mercy on us and replaced it. Since then, no problems. Also I usually
check the hyperterminal log files. I could see we were getting pump overload
