can't get Apprentice started on Win2K Jan. 19, 2003, 9:44 a.m.

Ok lots of questions here!

My system is …

AMD 1700+
256 MB 133mhz ram (2x128)
ATI Radeon 8500 64Mb DDR (Latest drivers installed)
Windows 2000 Pro Sp3
24 GB of HDD space with 10 GB Free, page files on 2 different partitions over two drives.
Cable Internet connection behind a Zonealarm Pro Firewall

First off the application (Houdini aprentice)wont run it crashes and Windows closes it down, the system doesnt lock up however , it just shuts down the application and the debugger runs.

The console seems to run (but im clueless so no commands have been run on it)

I have now uninstalled the application (again) and still have both the Houdini licence Client and Server in my system services.

Does the Application attempt connection to a remote server during normal operation? and if so which ports should be opened up to allow communication could his be the cause of the instability. I also dont understand why these components are still in my system services after the application has been removed??? Anyone have any ideas?

The system is normally very stable and system crashes are very rare…..oh yeah…its not me that wants to run this software its my better half…so I dont know to much about the software (yet).

I am however an IT Tech so should, with a little help from you guys n gals be (hopfully) able to resolve the issues.

Thanks in advance!! and pls help I am going slowly mad
