Sigil Crashes on Win7 v0.6.2 When loading image

Hi - I'm trying to add a cover image to my epub - everytime I try to load the image Sigil crashes completely - no error report nothing - it doesn't even freeze it just crashes.

Any work around?

Just tried that - still crashed even using the 800x600px version - which is waaay to small for iBookstore I know. I don't think it's the size - it doesn't even try as soon as I attempt to add an external fle - the message is "sigil a multi-platform ebook editor has stopped workingA problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

This happens even with an new empty file

Delete and install again. This is not normal behaviour (duh) and I have not seen that since release 0.4.x or something like that.

It did the same to me with calibre - so I rebooted the PC and it seem OK now

I can't run build 6 on my main Windows XP computer, and I have seen offhand mention in the KDP forum to the effect that "Sigil won't run on my computer" as a reason for not using the software, which I regularly recommend. So I conclude that there is a small set of machines out there that don't relate to Sigil.

Build 6 runs fine on my Vista laptop and a Windows 7 machine that sits a few feet to my left.

You might try 5.3, which works for me on the XP machine.

I'm running WinXP Home, SP3, updated until Jan 15th, 2013. Sigil v6.2 appears to be running fine. I just added an image to an epub I'm working on. Saved the file. Loaded in calibre viewer. Again, everything seems to be operating correctly. No BSOD or CTD.
