startingDrScheme, version, english

>I just downloaded and installed DrScheme, version, english, in
> "C:\Program Files\PLT-" on Windows XP Professional, Service
> Pack 2, but every time I start up this pre-release version of
> DrScheme, the following error pops up in a Command Prompt box:
>> Seg fault (internal error) at 12
> The a Windows XP dialog box pops up reporting an error in a
> "MrEd-based application," offering to send a report of the error to
> Microsoft.
> When I click "Send Error Report," the error report is sent, and then
> both dialog boxes close.  Then Version terminates.
> For some reason, the regular version 4.0.1, installed in
> "C:\bin\PLT-4.0.1," still starts up without any problems.  Similarly
> for both versions, installed in "C:\Program
> Files\PLT-," and, installed in "C:\Program
> Files\PLT-," respectively.
> Is this a bug, or do I need to do something special to get version
> to run?
