Interestingly, I've been having the exant same problems. I get error in Creator8.exe and it also mentions mfc71u.dll file also.
I have a mirror image of my C drive so I futzed around and performed a NEW install of Win XP Pro - no other programs whatsoever (added - some MUST updates) and installed just Easy Creator 8 & patched with 8.05. Boom, I got the same error!! I'm using an Intel MB D865PERL, ATI X1300 Video card, and 2 gig memory. Sent Easy CD [crash] pictures of my screen showing what occurs when I try to run Creator Classic and, you guessed it, got a "canned" response of perforning a disk defrag, inactivate all startup program, ya-da-ya-da-ya-da... Same problem. I now use a freeware program but really miss some of the Easy CD associated programs. Anyone in the world find a fix????
