USPS Database Expired while linking to USPS Database

Post by Eric » Thu Jan 19, 2012 3:43 pm

If you attempt to link to the USPS Database and get an error message reading USPS Database has expired, then this error can be solved in one of three ways:

Method 1:
Insert the most recent AccuZIP6 DVD.
Browse to the DVD drive.
Open the Program Files folder.
Right click on the ADRDATA folder and choose Copy.
Browse to C:\Program Files (or Program Files (x86) if the AccuZIP6 5.0 folder is in there).
Right click on the AccuZIP6 5.0 folder and choose Paste.

Method 2:
Delete the Plus4cfg.dat file out of the C:\Program Files\AccuZIP6 5.0 folder.

Method 3:
Browse to C:\Program Files (x86)\AccuZIP6 5.0\ADRDATA\National.
Right click on the plus4cfg.dat file and choose Properties.
Remove the Read Only attribute. Hit Apply and OK.

Launch AccuZIP6 and validation should work again
