PADS 9.0 on Windows7

I've just moved from an XP machine to a Win 7 machine and installed Pads 9.0.2 on the new machine. It's doing strange stuff:

 

1) I run PADS Layout in compatibility mode. When it first starts, if I go to File/Open, it just hangs (it displays an empty layout screen in the right panel). If I first load one of the existing designs that show up in the right-hand "Welcome to PADS Layout" panel, then everything seems to work fine (although I haven't run a complete design process).

 

2) Sometimes on startup, only half of the "Welcome to PADS Layout" panel displays. If I minimize and re-enlarge the window, it comes back ok.

 

So, now what?  Is this just an incompatibility issue that can only be resolved by installing vast amounts of money in an upgrade?

 

Thanks,

 

Barry
