Yes, I had the same problem. I solved mine by loading the older version of Predator and the newer version. There were some 'common files' that the newer version didn't install and one was the template files. This was my fix and it worked for me, so I never tried to figure out why.
Have you installed the UPG for editing the posts? I'm having problems with it.
I loaded the version on the 08 DVD, it crashes, then loaded the newest version from the download pages....it crashes too. This happens on both my work and home computers. But, on another computer in the office it runs just fine. I found more info at the Geometric's forum , I think it has to do with the file locations.
