Error opening Openlp on Windows 7

I installed openlp on Windows 7 and when I open the program, I get this error.

Access violation at address 00607BEE in module 'OpenLP.exe'. Read of address 00000318

When I click OK to that message, I get this error:

Access violation at address 006DC95A in module 'OpenLP.exe'. Read of address 00000000.

Can someone please help? Thanks.

    First if you have not already done so...uninstall the openlp program using the program control in the control panel on Windows 7. Then as you have downloaded the openlp installation file...right click on the icon and then left click on properties. Next, left-click on the compatability tab. You should see a small checkbox next to "Run this program in compatability mode for:" Left click this check box, and then in the drop down menu that is below the checkbox select the "Windows XP (Service Pack 3) mode. Leave the other settings below it alone...and then left click on the checkbox that says "Run the program as an administrator". Next, left click on the "apply" button and then left click the "OK" button. You can now install the prgram and all of it's features without any error messages. Please let me know how this works out for ya. :-)

    Thanks for the reply. Your instructions were great and that worked.

    I also had to do the same on the application exe file once openlp was installed for it to work.

    Thanks for that note...I discovered that today as well while I was working with it.
