I've only been working with it an hour or two, and I've already had some serious problems. UMPC 2.5 often and inexplicably crashes, often just after exiting (when it is least a nuisance), sometimes when opening a new painting, and occasionally when switching tools (which is the worst time). At one point, I had to uninstall and reinstall from scratch when it would crash every time I tried to open the program at all. The ArtRage team may already have a cluster of reports from the XP crash logger already, but if there is anything I can do to help track it down, I'd be very happy to do so. The crashes are keeping me from pursuing serious work right now.
Thanks in advance on any help!
Addendum for Error Specifics: It seems to happen consistently when I start a new painting from the menu (basic paper, default settings) and then select the magnifying glass. I can make it crash every time this way.
When the application is first installed, it functions fine and the Windows XP taskbar is properly stowed. However, on second run, the Windows XP taskbar is not stowed and the application becomes crash prone. Also, if I turn off the taskbar stowing setting in Artrage, subsequent attempts to load Artrage will fail every time until I de-install and re-install the application.
