Quizmaker refuses to run

I found today that I can't run Quizmaker any more, whether from Programs or from within a Powerpoint file. Either way I get a Windows 7 (64 bit) error

I tried reinstalling the latest version of Articulate and rebooting but this made no difference.

If I take a PPT file with no Articulate functions added/avtivated, it will let me add a quiz from withing the Powerpoint file though - or at least it puts the placeholder slide there. ; subsequently trying to use "edit in Quizmaker"  results inthe same error though.  

 I wonder if anyone has any ideas on what I should try next as I need to correct 1 of the original questions in the LMS published course that I developed previously and , as mentioned above, I cannot open the original *.quiz file to fix it.
