Having problem; mobi2oeb then opening the html in BookDesigner

So, I had an AZW file that had some format issues that bugged me. So, I de-drm'ed it. I ran mobi2oeb which generated the html and images folder and then tried to open the html file in BookDesigner. BookDesigner essentially just stays blank with a message at the bottom that says looking for styles, be patient, may take long time...exactly how long a time? I gave up and killed the process after a while.

At one point, I played with the settings and when I "unchecked" keep original format it did open almost immediately. But then as I began trying to edit it (delete some lines, etc.) it hung and became "not responding".

Any suggestions.

Vista Business 32 FWIW.

Brief update...if I understand correctly, BookDesigner utilizes MS Word for some stuff? I have Office 2003 installed. I tried using Word to open the html file directly and word hangs.
