Freehand MX won't launch on XP Pro - Macromedia Freehand

I recently purchased Studio MX 2004 and everything works except Freehand. I try to launch, get the hourglass, and then nothing. No tasks, no processes, nothing. I did make sure the Macromedia License Service was running. I can't seem to find anyone experiencing a similar problem beyond the well-doented mac issue (I'm running XP Pro). Anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Colin...

    Just a thought... Try it with your firewall turned off...

    IIRC FH checks to see if you are running other copies with the same serial
    number on a a network.

    Also get the FH11.0.2 update if you do note have it already.

    OS: XP Pro SP2
    Application: Freehand 10

    I've just upgraded a customer's PC to service pack 2 and now Freehand 10 takes
    between 10 and 20 seconds to load. This is very frustrating.

    I have noticed that the application system reuirements do not include XP Pro,
    though it seemed fine prior to the SP2 upgrade.
