I've turned off 3D acceleration, and turned it on. I don't know if there are any more changes I can make.

Thanks!
I've got the same problem.

Have you guys installed latest hic drivers for your video card?
If yes, try to remove drivers and install an older driver (from last year) and try again.

Thanks, I have been puzzling over this for weeks.
It is Multiplex Easystar I was looking for E for Easystar.

Your hint made me look in the middle of the list.

Ha-Ha

I didn't think the cover of the Phoenix disc looked 'that' war-like!

But that species does have a very different view of the world than we do!

Not sure if this might help, but I had a similar issue on same model Mac running VMware Fusion. The program would crash immediately on startup. I ended up choosing "Safe mode" in the Phoenix start options and it started without a crash. Ever since it has been working fine without having to choose "Safe mode".
