This problem occurs when Workbench is used when Windows Vista when set to use the Windows Aero Color scheme. The programming paradigm for Aero is new and completely different from previous releases and is not fully compatible with Workbench.
Workaround: In the Windows Control Panel > Appearance Settings dialog, Set the Color Scheme to a setting other than Windows Aero, such as Windows Classic. See attachment for an example of the Appearance Settings dialog.
