After upgrading to the latest version, I couldn't run PCB, getting the Error #5 Runtime error. SCH ran fine. I tried all the steps suggested by Express in the FAQs to no avail. Worked with Express Support to try a few different things, but wasn't having any success. I decided to try the "Troubleshoot Compatibility" option when instead I clicked on "Run as Administrator." The screen went black for 2-3 seconds, then the  "User Account Control" box came up for permission to run the program and it worked. I tried it several more times, including after a reboot and it's working. Hopefully this option works for any other of you having the same problem.
