CityDesk hangs on Conversion

I'm trying to convert my CityDesk v1.0 site to CityDesk v2.0, but CityDesk seems to just hang while attempting the conversion.  I have tried rebooting my PC and closing all programs, both memory resident and otherwise.  I have also compacted/repaired the database.  I am running Win2k Advanced Server SP 4 on a 1 GHZ PIII w/ 512 MB RAM.  There are less than 50 articles in the database and I have let CityDesk "run" for up to an hour on the conversion, but it still hangs.  Any tips to help me get this working would be much appreciated, or perhaps there is an earlier discussion about it that I may have missed.

some ideas

first compact the site in cd1

make several copies of the site, and delete various pieces from each of the copies.  Then try to migrate each of these.

My guess is that some scripting syntax problem exists which is unable to be parsed by cd 2

This is all total guessing.  But maybe .....
