The workaround let me play the game, so thanks for that. :) The first/slow opened game is still there in the background, though, and makes my laptop fan cranky, not to mention still needs to be closed once you finish playing. Again, if I can be of any help in allowing you to pinpoint a more permanent fix let me know; thanks again for your help.

Glad it worked! I think once you have the functioning game window open, you can close the original without an issue but I could be misremembering.
