Well bless you pea-picken little hearts: You finally got us an upgrade, 8.0.059, that works just fine.
This after all the fiasco with versions 8.0.015 and 8.0.020.
I took the safe route in upgrading by completely removing version 7.0.483 and setting msconfig for a clean install.
ZASS is running just fine, so far, and the windows shut down and start up times are normal.
