I get a eooro starting up PP1.5

MS Visual C++ RuntIME LIBRARY
RUN TIME ERROR
ABNORMAL PROGRAM TERMINATION

I'm running it on my workstation fine which running XP pro

But the problem is on the laptop. Its running XP Home.

Is anyone running pp1.5 on home and working?

Has anyone had this problem?

Is there a fix?

I've tried multiple installations. Installed it onto am external drive and works fine on the workstation but no on the laptop.

Thanks in advance.
