PAL defaults to System Overview threshold template and fails?

Anyone experienced something similar?

I created custom threshold template files based upon System Overview.

I launch PAL, select counter log file, select my custom  threshold file, set output options, then execute. Command prompt opens but program aborts reporting can't find/open System Overview or something like that, even though I didn't select it.

I then have to repeat the PAL GUI selection process a few more times, fiddling with the GUI before it actually works as intended.

This doesn't happen all the time but does sometimes. I wonder why it does that. I don't have the exact error message right now, but I'll post it next time I run across it.

I've never had that happen to me yet. Make sure that the threshold name in the threshold file properties is unique to all of the other thresholds.

Ultimately, the command line arguments to the PAL.vbs file at the end of the wizard (Queue) would be the part to watch.
