I have a program, Lotus WordPro (part of the Smart Suite Millenium Edition Version 9.8) that crashes during initialization when WindowBlinds is active. The program runs fine if either WindowBlinds is unloaded via the taskbar icon unload option or the "default" skin is applied using the WindowBlinds configurator. Both of these options seem to return the computer to the state where WindowBlinds is not running at all. In contrast, if WB is up and running with any of the standard skins supplied with the program, then WordPro crashes shortly after initalization (a popup occurs about gathering data to send to Microsoft and the system event log shows that an program error occurred).
Seeing this, I added WordPro to the per-application exception list and specified exclusion of all skinning. But the crash still occurs. If WindowBlinds is active, WordPro crashes even if excluded from skinning; if WB is not active then WP runs fine.
Any ideas for a fix or bypass that is amenable to automation?
