ACT! 2010 - Layout Designer (Contact) Hangs everytime

I've just created a new character field (without any problems) which I want to add to my contact layout. Everytime I click on Tools>Design Layouts>Contacts the Layout Designer window frame appears (window is just blank) and the application hangs.

 

I'm using ACT! 2010 with Windows XP Pro SP3.

 

Has anyone else come across this? I'm pretty sure I have changed/moved contact layout fields in the past without problems.

 

Any advice or suggestions as to how I can fix this problem would be very gratefully received.

 

Thanks

Simon

I recently had the same thing happen. It was caused by a damaged program file. I had to uninstall and then reinstall ACT! 2010 to fix.
