Ugh... Problems with modality.

Just installed CityDesk on my Win2KSp2 machine. The first time I run it I get two error windows (the 'report problem' window). The error report says: "V: 1.0 Can't show non-modal form when modal form is displayed:401
frmMain:timerOpenDatabases_Timer:160"

Can't use the software.... Did I install it wrong?

that's really strange. If you run it again do you get the same thing?

Most likely you double clicked and then double clicked again very quickly, so both instances of CD opened at the same time.

A. After running trying it several times - Yes, It still happens.
B. I'm not running it by double clicking - I'm running it from program files->Fog Creek Software->CityDesk.

The only thing I can think of that I did in the installation was change the installation directory. Should this matter?

Uninstalling and installing didn't help.

Hm. It's still a mystery to me. We'll investigate further and try to find a way to prevent this.
