Here is what happens:
I click on publish, click on books, then create book. The box comes up asking me to name the book. I type the name and click save. The entire publish workspace turns white and then the entire program closes.
I reopen the program and it says it shut down improperly and tells me to compact my file, I click ok and the program starts (and I have compacted my file).
I again click on publish, then saved books, the book title is there, I click on it and then when I click on open book, the program once again just closes.
I have followed the knowledge base instructions for fixing this to the letter, everything is up to date and I even tried a test tree which does the exact same thing.
