Issue I170 2006-04-25 [randomnumbergenerator,70,resolved] SIMION may freeze on startup with the message "Initializing Random Number Generator". This error can occur if the system has not been rebooted for more than 24 days. Also noted by kenn in 7.1beta. Affects 7.0.0 to 7.0.2; 7.1beta1 to 7.1beta7 (on loading workbench). Resolution: 7.0.3 and 8.0beta8 should fully resolve this. Prior versions have a workaround of disabling reinitialization of the random number generator as described on p. E-15 of the SIMION 7.0 manual. This was usually done by replacing the "c:\FILES.GUI" directory with the files in (http://www.simion.com/files/FILES.GUI.zip). Rebooting the system may also resolve this temporarily.
