To the best of my knowledge there is nothing unusual about the way the program was installed or in the way I am trying to run it. There is only one user account on this computer, (mine) and it is an administrator account. DC is installed and running from the "C" drive, with no special atributes that I am aware of.
There are a many programs installed and this is the only one I'm having this problem with. I did "Run as administrator" without any difference in the way it runs (or doesn't).
Some additonal info: When the progroam opens the initial splash screen which appears to be a file selection screen opens, and it is viable - I can view files in the "look in" window, and I can grab the screen and move it around on the desktop. Then, within 30 seconds or so the main drawing window opens, and at that point the program freezes, and I get the attached error message screen. If I click "Close program" the message window closes, but the DC window does not, and the only way I can close it is with task manager. Other programs continue to run behind, or on top of DC, although I cannot see the screen to use mouse controls, keyboard functions can be used.
I don't know if any of this is helpful or not. I will call the support folks tomorrow.
