  • We are having issues running CE 6.0 CETK on some of our Windows 7 machines.  It works fine on 4 machines, but crashes on launch on 2 other machines.  The exception information is as follows:

    I have tried:

    • uninstalling CETK 6 and installing the stand alone package downloaded from Microsoft,
    • Running win7 in XP compatibility mode

    I have not uninstalled all of CE 6 / VS2005 yet. 

    Has anyone come across this?  Any suggestions on things to try?

  • Figured it out.  CETK was crashing because of a multi-monitor ultility that is installed on some of the computers.  Ultramon v3.1.0 causes the crash.  If you run in to this, you just need to disable Ultramon before launching CETK and the problem goes away.
