I am able to load it uneventfully, and the proper icons appear in the proper

room with no windows or doors, but by then, the drive gets lock jaw, I get 
irritated, and my wife gets concerned about the level of indecency my 
vocabulary obtains.

being able to even run the damn thing, I will shortly be returning the program
