We believe this is an issue unique to Windows XP, and we think we have a fix for it. We'll be doing a bug fix release in the near future that will include this fix and hopefully some others.

I'm going to assume that the version of this error that my wife is getting isn't the one affecting everyone else, then, since she runs Win7.

@Chemlak: Your wife's bug is completely different from the one that others in this thread have encountered. We've got your crash report and will investigate.

Thanks. I look forward to it. Does LWD recommend Windows 7 or above? Because I only run Windows for this software, I wanted something small and nimble but if it makes life easier for future updates, I'll just install Win7.

We definitely recommend at least Windows 7. There are simply too many liabilities associated with XP. It's so old that even Microsoft has officially abandoned it, and lots of new capabilities are possible with newer versions of Windows. We're frequently constrained by having to support XP, and there will come a day at some point in the future when we'll have to abandon XP as well in order to take advantage of those new capabilities and provide a better experience for Realm Works users. So, if you have the option, definitely upgrade to at least Windows 7.

I believe even XP users can upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

I'm not so sure of that, I've only seen Windows 7 and 8/8.1 advertised. I don't remember Vista or XP mentioned at all about a free upgrade.

XP users cannot upgrade for free. (Windows 10 Free Upgrade FAQ: Minimum Windows 7 SP1 or Windows 8.x.)

Sorry. I could have sworn I remember reading somewhere that XP users may be able to upgrade, but I should have googled it.

Win10 has so many intrusions deep in the code that I will never install it. I'll throw on 8 and install and hope for the best.
