I afraid I don't understand the question - nevertheless I would suggest that you add to your description some screen shots showing the problem in steps - it might help us resolve the problem. Also... please provide information about the Computer and OS that you are using.

It looks like a bad install, but it may be a corrupted download.

re-download the application
re-install with the new download

The tips screen opens whenever the application starts & the tip are *.htm based but are installed with the rest of the application.

What is your OS?

Ok that makes it very clear. There is no question there is a software conflict. Hmm... what happened a few weeks ago, did you install new software like a virus checker, was there a windows update, did you change your default browser.

no software changes
windowsupdate runs automatik

virusscan avg

just re-installed xt5 with new download
same problem >:(

Try turning off your AVG - on some systems it con conflict with DoubleCAD.

Try re-installing IE. The tips files are HTM based.
