This video, though low in quality, is an example of exactly what I was saying about Chronos crashing on initial startup on a new machine. The method I used to get Chronos to work (turning off the user account control settings) has modified something more than just the firewall settings because I can no longer replicate this issue. I have no idea what Vulcan changed on my machine because the UAC was disabled in order to run Chronos.
Maptek has, at least, recognized that this is an issue. The internal ticket VUL-13912 has been created to record the bug and any steps being taken to improve the initial customer experience. I appreciate that there are some people at Maptek who want the user to have a good experience running the software.
