Weird.  Of course, it works on many XP systems.  And it sounds like
this problem is exclusively with the GrWin plotting system.  My
initial thoughts would be to:
  a) try re-installing
  b) try looking throughout the registry for 'grwin' and remove any
references there.
  b) try replacing the grwin executable with one from

Another question is whether the Windows XP version is an
English-language version?  We've definitely seen issues with Windows
versions that used unicode as the default text encoding, though I'd
guess that you'd have different issues if that were the case.

Sorry that's not very definitive -- I don't think I've ever seen this
particular problem.
