Hi John

I tried windows which worked first time, then crashed on clicking around
the SX calendar.

Afterwards it doesn't launch even after restarting windows. The tracefile
remains empty.

Is there a particular event log that would help? Alternatively do you have
instructions on hooking up a debugger?

Windows Event Log only has:
