I hadnt come across your LoveStudio Tool previously, it looks
very interesting so I was keen to download and try it out.
Unfortunately when I tried to run it after installation, it wont
run for me, it just crashes immediately.
Do I need to install any other dependent packages ? For info I
am running Win 7 64 bit.
Just wondering if any other Windows 7 64 bit folks have got this
to install and work ?
