SanDiskSecureAccessV2_win fails to load


I have a strange problem where the SanDiskSecureAccessV2_win application will not boot up.  Here’s what happens:

  1. I insert my Cruzer 16GB

  2. I enter in a Dell Data Protection Password (required because the SanDisk contains files from a computer protected by this Dell software); this password is accepted.

  3.  The Cruzer is now visible as Removable Disk (D:), and the contents contain the SanDiskSecureAccess application as well as the SandDiskSecureAccessVault (as well as several other default folders and a notepad titled ‘autorun’)

  4.  I double click on SanDiskSecureAccessV2_win and for a brief moment I get the hourglass as if the program was loading but then it abruptly stops and fails to load (I can even see in the Task Manager that briefly “SanDiskSecureAccessV2_win.exe *32” is an active process, but it disappears).

Any idea what might be causing this failure?  

Thank you very much for any help.
