CityDesk 2.0 Preview Problem

I just published my site using CD 2.0. When the FTP finished, I hit the Preview With Internet Explorer button. Nothing happened for a while, and then a dialog popped up saying "This action cannot be completed because the other application is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy application and correct the problem."

The Cancel button in this dialog is disabled, so I only have a choice of Switch To... or Retry, neither of which does anything useful.

I can't close the Publish dialog, and so can't exit CityDesk.

I already had some IE windows open, if that makes any difference. None of them were locked up or anything.

I was able to work around this by creating a custom Preview program, and pointing it at IE. Hitting the default IE still locks up, but the custom one works fine.

Ive had the same with the old version...and used exactly the same workaround. Suddely when I checked again after a few weeks, it worked. Probably got fixed by a reboot or a IE update.
