If I restart a puzzle (fresh start) I can play for a while until I accidently do one of the Clear while Wiggling things.

However, any saved solutions from previous versions crash instantly, as soon as they are touched.

I did play on both puzzles on Tuesday evening after the bad update and before the subsequent rollback.

Are saved solutions from that version not compatible?

The attitude in global chat is that I'm imagining this, and that there is nothing wrong with the application.

The game is unplayable, and there seems to be no apparent activity to resolve this.

The only game play action that does not cause an instant crash is Wiggle - Pull, shove, banding, shake rebuild, tweak all cause instant crashes.

It's very hard to stay positive about this when there is no acknowledgement that there is a problem, and no sign of activity to fix the problem.

I had one after the update and then 1,5h no problems.

But the restartet puzzle had locks in the 2nd start and I don't think they were before (but as it was the positions from crashes the day before I'm not sure).

So you could try an unfreeze before doing anything. Perhaps there is the bug. Only a Possibility though.

Shake etc. should work with or without locks in place.

Still crashing to desktop or the "Notify Microsquish" error dialog.

Starting new puzzle didn't help.

Re-installing from scratch didn't help.

WinXp SP3

Can't play at all.

Any ideas when this might be looked at?
