HELP! KLWP restarts after adding bitmap image

I saw this post from a few years ago I'm having the same problem now and I have tried all of the suggested fixes. Please help! I keep loosing all my work!!

"When trying to add an image or a shape with bitmap texture, I select pick image but all I am getting is a blank screen that closes a second later.. I have been using KLWP for quite some time and this is my first issue with it."
