RE: Diskeeper causes the Microsoft Management Console to stop working.
Eventually Diskeepr helpdesk instructed me to check whether digit grouping
was on (at regional and language selection). When I turned it on, Diskeeper
could start. When I turned i off again (no digit groupin) MCC crashed...
every time Diskeeper was launched.
Does anyone has an explanation ? Sloppy programming by Diskeeper engineers ?
