I'm having trouble with Drawing Tools in a new installation of WinXP 6.0.2.

Evidently, my drawing palette didn't install properly:

1.) Ctrl-D doesn't get me the advertised new palette shown on

2.) the old-style palette appears but with a $Failed in the title bar.

3.) when I try to annotate graphic output or copy-and-paste bitmaps, the 
program often crashes to send-a-report-to-microsoft.

There's nothing helpful to me in the ...\FrontEnd\Palettes directory.

The main menu Palettes->Install Palettes yields nothing.

Oddly, there's a DrawingTools.nb in FrontEnd\SystemResources, but it's 
stamped Created 6/19/2007, Modified just now.


Reinstall? Uninstall existing versions first?
