Default Re: 2.8.1 Standalone Won't Install/Run

I upgraded to Parallels 5 to see if that was an issue. It doesn't appear to help. Now I get a message at launch that says "A critical component cannot be started. This may be due to missing or damaged files. You may have to reinstall the D-Show software if the problem persists."

I've gone through another 3-4 rounds of uninstall, download, reinstall, restart, update and just about every other thing I can think of.

Has anyone else had a similar issue, and more importantly, has anyone found a solution?

Thanks in advance!
