Freehand 10 Error on Startup

Freehand 10 Error on Startup

Freehand 10 Error on Startup

We recently purchased Macromedia Studio MX.....and after installing the Freehand 10 portion of that.....I am unable to open it.  I am getting an error:

"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005).  Click OK to terminate the application."

Does anyone know what would cause this or a fix?


RE: Freehand 10 Error on Startup

When you say 'we', is this computer for public use, i.e. multi-user?  

If not, follow these steps and let me know if it works:

1.  Uninstall Freehand.
2.  Reboot your system.
3.  Install Freehand once more.
4.  Reboot your system once more.

Hope this helps.  If not, just send a posting.
