I searched for earlier threads and found these:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=177979

In particular posts 10 & 11 of the 2nd link. Not sure if a workaround is possible. May have to upgrade my computer if I want to run Sigil.

It would have been helpful if this issue was mentioned in the installation instructions of the Sigil wiki.

BTW. Bought the computer in 12/2003.
I have the same CPU (1.5G RAM) on one of my older XP machines. Just tried the upgrade to Sigil 7. (was Sigil 6.4)

Install ran.
But No Joy when I tried to run. (I did reboot)
I have the XP crash log if the devs are interested.
