I have this version running correctly on three Windows XP systems.

On my Windows 2000 Server system I get an unknown software exception 
0xC0000417 at location 0x00444D99.  I hope you can trace that.  I will 
send an application event log privately so that you can see how far it got 
before failing.

I haven't tested on Windows Vista or Windows-7 because of the as-yet 
unresolved differences between 4.2.4 and 4.2.5 which make 4.2.5 such a 
poor timekeeper on these OSes.
