If you are using Emerald 2.5 on one machine, how come you installed 2.1 on
another? There are vast differences between them and if your database is
geared toward 2.5, then running 2.1 on it will likely mess things up. Your
best bet is to uninstall 2.1 and install 2.5 from scratch on it. I think
the problem that you're running into (accounts tab) is related to a bug in
an old version of tabctl32.ocx. The one I've got is version I
seem to remember quite a few people running into this same (or similar)
problem quite a while back.
