2.15 Crash on start-up

I just upgraded from CD1 to the release candidate. When I run it, it crashes right away before any windows appear. The error is "Runtime Error 7 - Out of Memory".

I did not get this with any of the betas. Uninstalling, rebooting, installing from scratch and upgrading a 1.0 install all had the same outcome.

I fixed it by doing a windows update (XP). I picked up a couple of recent security fixes, an IE 6 update (I was already using IE6) and .NET Framework 1.1. After this, everything worked fine. Do you need the 1.1 framework to run?

You don't need the 1.1 framework.

I'm guessing some DLL wasn't installed correctly on your system, and the IE upgrade fixed that, but it's hard to tell.
