FMPro 9 won't launch in Windows under Safe Mode

Post

I have to run my Windows XP laptop in Safe Mode while I wait for a system reinstall CD.

I can open all my word-processing docs and spreadsheets,  but Filemaker Pro v.9 won't launch. I am getting a message that error # -158 occurred (yes, that's "minus one-five-eight") and FileMaker Pro could not complete authentication. Apparently, FMPro doesn't like the cramped conditions of Safe Mode... :smileyhappy:

And that leads to another major concern. I will need to do an operating system reinstall (that's why I am stuck with Safe Mode for now). Will FMPro "miss" some piece of software it had dropped into the Windows folder?

I would greatly appreciate any insights.
