Hi All

I wonder if anyone has encountered the following error when loading ADT,
and if so what did they do to resolve the issue.

hit enter to continue

When I hit enter the splash screen vanishes and the program exits.  I'm
running on Windows XP and have just seen the error after successfully
using ADT for a couple of years.  I recently changed my own Python
installation to ActivePython and have loaded GTK in order to use another
bit of code.  Would that have anything to do with the problem?

Thanks in advance for any help.
