I have installed Hoyle Puzzle and Board Games 2008 on a Windows XP system. Everything works fine except for the Panic (Tetris clone) game. When the game starts it just freezes, and I either get "Hoyle has to close due to a problem" error, or it just hangs.

I have actually purchased two copies of this game, one on CD and one from download. Initially, the trial version of the downloadable game worked. I then decided to buy a copy in the store. Installing the CD version is when Panic quit working. I have since uninstalled the CD version and installed the purchased download version, but have the same problems.

It seems that installing the CD version caused the problem. There is a known issue with the CD install routine which forces you to install manually (with instructions from Encore). I think this is the real issue. Encore says they are working on the problem, but aren't very responsive with their support.

I tried uninstalling everything Hoyle related, but there are three other Hoyle games on this system, so it's hard to tell which is which.

Anyone else had any issues with this game?
