I've installed the 6.2 (first I have uninstalled the 6.1).
But I get this error when I try to run all the samples:

2DGeom.exe - Impossible to find entry point
Impossible to find the entry point ?Allocate@Standard@@SAPAXI@Z of the procedure in the bookcase of dynamic connection TKernel.dll.

please note that I translate with Google the original message.

It's only for me?
The 6.1 worked fine...
