Windows 7: DVDStyler V1.8.4.2 consistently freezes at same point

DVDStyler V1.8.4.2 consistently freezes at same point


On my old laptop (HP Pavilion ZV5000) I used DVDStyler a fair amount to burn DVDs that would look nice with a DVD player. However, I just installed DVDStyler (latest version from site) onto my new machine (vastly higher specs) and it keeps freezing.

The DVD I'm trying to burn contains:
-Two menu pages (main and video selection), both with customized backgrounds and both with MP3 files in the background)
-Three video files (yes, they do fit size-wise) (I removed one after the second failure, still freezes)

It seems to go through all the frames the first time, but then when it gets onto a second section entitled 'stream mapping', it becomes inactive, and when I click on the window, it changes to 'not responding' (CPU usage also drops to 0 for the DVDStyler process when it gets to this second stage). I would paste the text, but of course I can't as the window is inactive, so I'm afraid a screenshot will have to do

(no, the screenshot doesn't say not responding on the title bar, only because I haven't clicked on it yet this time, but I assure you it isn't doing anything)

I just went looking around for an older version of DVDStyler and downloaded and installed it (I went for the final 2010 version, as I knew that worked on the laptop), tried burning the disc again and it worked. Guess it must just be an issue with the latest version then.

Anyone here familiar with DVDStyler? Menu setup question...
There is a forum for DVDStyler itself but that place is a veritable ghost town. My menu setup is basically very simple. I have a main menu (vmMenu) which shows the title and beneath that two buttons, "Play All" and "Chapters". Page two (Menu 1) has three titles on it. When I select "Chapters"...
