This is at least a partial fix -- you still get annoying error
messages, but the animation will work.  Assuming you have installed in the /LocalApps directory, look at the file
/LocalApps/, locate
the line that says

	$RasterFunction = Identity
and change it to read

	$RasterFunction = $DisplayFunction
and re-launch Mathematica.
