This scenario is 100% repeatable when I double-click the shortcuts for MGED, Archer, and RtWizard, but will cite details for MGED:
-- Double-click the shortcut for MGED.
-- What I take to be a console window appears for MGED.
-- After a pause, windows entitled
(Tk) MGED 7.12.6 Command Window (id_0)
(Tk) MGED 7.12.6 Graphics Window (id_0)
appear, but nothing (menus, toolbars, whatever) is drawn in them. Precisely, the Graphics window
appears to have been painted gray, and the Command window shows only its edges and titlebar,
but the contents of the screen "beneath" it are still visible. (That is, that portion of the screen hasn't
been erased yet.)
-- The crash dialog appears, stating that "mged.exe has encountered a problem...".
-- I click the "click here" link to see what the error report contains. Another dialog appears,
displaying the error signature
AppName: mged.exe AppVer: 0.0.0.0 ModName: unknown
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 00000000
-- I click the Technical Details link, see the temp file, and have attached it. The one thing I haven't done
is copy and paste the associated dump info. If you'd like this as well, let me know, and I'll repeat this
