Maybe some

non-admin rights trouble?
Try run it as administrator and/or install anywhere not in "program files"

Here's my wild guess...

For some reason, I couldn't reproduce the bug. However, a bit of trial and error suggests that the job PDB might be a temporary file that's generated from the original PDB. Have you tried deleting both the job PDB and the following files associated with it as well?

  • *.ir_job.puzzle_setup
  • autosave*.*
