I've installed DVDXShow and successfully registered. However, when I run the application I get the dwwin.exe error after the DVDXShow splash screen disappears.
Error Message is

The exception Breakpoint
A breakpoint has been reached.
(0x80000003) occurred in the application at location 0x77f75a58.

Does anyone have a fix?

I ran Windows Update from their website and had about 17 non-critical updates to do. I updated in groups and tried DVDXShow after each install. DVDXShow came up running without the dwwin error after I installed these 3 updates:

Windows Movie Maker 2
Update for Windows XP Service Pack 1 (KB810243)
Recommended Update for Windows XP SP1 (817778)

I'm not sure which of these fixed the problem, but hey, I'm happy it's fixed. Haven't tried DVDXShow yet but at least it came up running.

By the way, dwwin.exe is a WinOS system executable and it stands for Dr. Watson. There is alot of info out on the net from people getting this error. Do a search on dwwin.

thanks for all the help.
