Trevor, Thanks again. Any idea why I was able to use 8.5 for years on WinXP up until about 2 weeks ago ? I've had WinXP since it first shipped along with Generations 8.5 for at least 3-4 years.
Have other users mentioned anything that changed in a recent WinXP update that would cause this app to crash when trying to open any Generations file ? When I say "crash", I mean the window that pops up saying that the app caused a violation and it asks you whether you want to send a report to Microsoft. Have you heard of an issue like this recently ?
Why would 8.5a work where 8.5 doesn't work ? I am just curious to know what the root cause is. Could a reinstall of 8.5 resolve it ? I haven't tried that yet.
