    Hi Jason,

    Errors like this are usually caused by one of tow things:
    1) a bad load of the vm – try stopping the vm and then starting it up again (not restarting from within the vm, but shutdown and then use your vm program to start it up again)
    2) a bad download off the vm – try downloading again.
