AoI on Wintel
Drivers for video cards on Wintel machines can cause trouble with AoI, especially drivers for ATI cards.
If you are having trouble with your Wintel machine hanging up while you are running AoI with challenging problems and especially if you get the occasional Blue Screen of Death, a very rare situation with XP, try disabling OpenGL in your preferences file for AoI.

Actually it didn't seem to make any difference in AoI's execution speed.
