I'm familiar with most of these Windows common controls from programming in Visual Basic (many moons ago).
The interesting and annoying thing is that Bidule sometimes starts up normally and sometimes (mostly) not.

Having said all that, previous (unlicensed) trial versions of Bidule (don't remember which specific versions, but within the last three years) that I've tried out in the past never gave me any problems on this same computer.

Maybe it's one of Microsoft's wonderful Windows 10 updates causing the problem?
Could be time to get a MAC.... or for the guys that write Spec to produce a 64-bit version.

Last 3 years would be a bit of a stretch to go into a source control diff hunt, also if it's a Windows update or something else that was installed later
that wouldn't help. I'll send you an e-mail with links to some previous P2 builds (once I get into the office and uploaded them) so you can check if any of them works any better.

Postscript:
A PC crash has forced me to reinstall Windows 10 and whaddya know? Bidule now starts perfectly every time.
So obviously some update has caused the problem.
I f***ing HATE Microsoft.

By the way: I also lost my license as a result of reinstalling Windows. How do I get a replacement?
