For the past few months, I've been working on entering in morphological 
information in the DELTA Editor program for a dataset of several taxa and 
characters. Up to yesterday, everything has been running smoothly on the 
program.  Today, I'm working on my dataset in DELTA Editor using the same 
computer I have been working from since the beginning of this project, and I 
keep receiving an "Internal Error" message, which sometimes causes immediate 
shut-down of the program. This message shows up when the dataset is opened, 
and usually closes down at random, or when I go to edit a character. Has anyone 
encountered a similar problem and know how to resolve the issue?

The message I keep receiving is as follows in a new window with the heading 
"ObjectWindows Exception":

INTERNAL ERROR: A descriptor was requested, but its ID was not found in the 

     The ID being sought was 455
     The typeid being sought was TVOCharTextDesc *

OK to resume?

[End error message]
