Hi Dave.

I've had the same trouble some time ago and submitted the problem here. 
Unfortunately I'm not able to find the topic in this forum. It looks 
like it was before 2012.
I wonder if the name of one of the files was concerned. Maybe one with 
blakns in the name.
If I remember well I used this version too.
