I think both bidding software products are worth more than they charge but sometimes there are issues as with anything.

Under File>Preferences>Misc, do you have the box for "Use PiLOTS for Fare Data" checked or unchecked?

As someone else mentioned, select Fox Fares and it'll work. I'll get the PiLOTS fares working again soon. Hard to keep up with the moving target sometimes.
