I have an old PC that I used to use in my shack and my wife says I need to get rid of it because it's been sitting around for 6 years, so it must be "junk". It won't boot but I pulled all the data off the drive. There's an old copy of ACLog on the drive and I wanted to see if the database had any QSOs that weren't recorded in my current logging program.
So I installed the current version (5.2) on my PC and it crashed on launch with the windows "stopped working" dialog. Did the uninstall/reinstall routine just in case - same outcome. For grins and giggles, I downloaded and installed VHF Contest to see if it was a program or PC specific problem. On startup I get an Error dialog box with debug into. Looking at the output it looks it's a graphics or font issue on my PC.
I've included the error info from both programs below.
