    "Unable to Create Fonts" Messeage

      On my new laptop with Vista installed, After Effects CS3 was running fine until one day on startup it displayed only a pop-up saying "After Effects error Unable to Create Fonts". Clicking "ok" removes the popup but the program does not start up. The task manager reveals that the program is still running in the background but using little memory. Killing the process allows for trying to start the program again but the results are the same.
      I uninstalled the program and went back to 7.0 which started up fine just once and then displayed the same error.
      Is this a Vista compatibility problem? What actions can one take to resolve the problem?

      Thanks.

      PS I had similar problems with Premiere CS3 (albeit with a generic error message) and had to fall back to an older version, this however keeps running fine.
