I'm just running Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3, v.3244 Build 2600 and don't have any special configurations that I know of. This computer is a little over 2 years old and has had plenty of things installed and uninstalled over time, so probably not as clean as it once was.
I do have SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005 and the .net framework installed on this computer. Could any of those things be causing a problem?
Ok, I pulled out my other laptop which also has Windows XP Professional service pack 3 installed. It's a pretty clean install and doesn't have many other programs installed on it since I don't use it much. After completing the Scrivener install I got this error: "This application failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may correct this problem" when I tried to open the program.
I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it and got the same error again. Apparently I can't use Scrivener on either of my laptops.
When I tried opening the program on this laptop again, I decided to let the debugger open when the program crashed during project creation and the error that it's reporting is a division by zero error. Something must be happening when it creates the new project because all the folders that are created in the new project are empty and there is no .scrivx file.
I do have antivirus programs on both laptops. AVG Professional is installed on the laptop that can't create new projects and ZoneAlarm Pro on the laptop that can't install the program correctly at all.
