MSDEV.EXE and DEVRES.PKG unhandled exception accvio upon launching MS Visual C++ 6.0

I have MS Visual Studio / Visual C++ V6.0 installed which has been working absolutely fine up until I installed a terminal emulation product called Hummingbird Exceed 10. Now whenever I launch VC++ 6.0 I immediately get an error and when I click OK and get dropped into debug I am presented with the following error information in a message box:

"MSDEV.EXE unhandled exception DEVRES.PKG Access Violation"

I am then allowed to get past the error and drop into my C++ development environment at which point I can open an existing project and continue happily along. So this is annoying more than anything else right now but I want to stop getting this error everytime I launch VC++, any ideas?

Thanks in Advance.

'DEVRES.PKG' is a plugin DLL which in fact is the resource editor. I assume that some of the fonts installed along with Exceed (which IIRC is a X11 server) causes this problem. I'd use 'FileMon' (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/filemon.shtml) to track that (it should show you which file msdev.exe tries to access at the moment of the crash).
