Gambit issue
Hi everyone,
Gambit.v2.3.16 is not running on my PC. I have windows XP SP3 and I have installed exceed 13. The PC is an I7-940 with 6 GB RAM. When I try to run Gambit I get the following message :

Locating Exceed installation ...
Launching Exceed 13 ...
Starting D:\Fluent.Inc\gambit2.3.16\ntx86\gambit.exe -device open -id default_id2052 -new ...

The exceed session is activated and then the loader freezes ; the window remains but it does not do anything else. Task manager reports that exceed and gambit start up are both running. Fluent on the other hand runs normally. Also I tried to install fluent and gambit on an older PC (P4 3.0GHz) and it works. Is it some sort of incompatibility with the windows service pack 3 or the hardware?
Thanks in advance.
