This didn't matter if it was OSS or SE edition. Both were 5.0.23. Both refused to start (crash at startup actually!). Running Vista, 32-bit, inside VMWare Fusion, on OS X. I was using it in full-screen mode.

Was running with a projector (an LCD tv), mirroring from my macbook. Error message:

just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

How to repeat:
Cannot be repeated, just embarrassed while giving my talk on Workbench

Thank you for the bug report.

I tried hard to reproduce the problem but failed. So far WB starts up very reliably in my VMs. Please watch this behavior in the new versions and let us know if it still shows up. However it should at least be repeatable to make any meaningful debugging possible.

The problem happened when the computer was connected to an external screen. It worked fine during the tests before the presentation.
The same problem happened during a presentation in Australia, January 2008.

Either it's my presence in the audience that influences the application, or there is something fishy in the display code.

I couldn't repeat how I was able to repeat before on my Windows Vista Ultimate. Could you please try with latest version 5.0.25. Thanks in advance.

closing, as it cannot be repeated in the latest release...
