You double click on the PAT Icon on your desktop to start PAT and nothing seems to happen. You don't see any error message and no PAT windows or charts appear.
This sounds like the main PAT server may be down. There is a quick check you can do on this. Point your browser to the URL web address of:
http://www.tradingfuturessoftware.com/ Once you are at that page you should see the following message.
This is the server for domain tradingfuturessoftware.com. (PAT Software)
Server is online and running.
If you ever log on to this address in the future and you do not see this page, it will mean the server is not running.
