Neal, does Spurge 2.3 still work correctly for you?
All of a sudden my Spurge stopped working - when I run the program, the operation hangs before the UI appears. Three copies of the process are shown operating in the Task Manager, but the program no longer functions. The best I can figure is that a recent Windows update has caused this program to stop functioning. My Spurge file isn't corrupted - I have other copies, and they all have the same issue. I wonder if anyone else is experiencing the same problem?
From PTC support ... the COM process can sometimes hang if an untrapped error occurs. The solution is to stop the pfclscom.exe process.
