SPBOpenDevice Failed. err = -227

Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem? My Quadra 660AV, running
14.4kbs PPP connection (ISDN next month), returns this message when I
launch CU-SeeMe.68k0.70b12.

The problem initially occurred when, after launching 70b10, I unclicked
(deselected?) the top box in the audio window. Restart didn't fix it. New
copy of CU-SeeMee didn't fix it. 70b12 didn't fix it. Appears that
whatever broke when I deselected that box, remains broken somewhere.
Because of the SPBOpenDevice error, I can't even get to the point of seeing
the audio window now.

This is my first attempt with CU-SeeMe. Before completely breaking it, I
was able on one attempt to get my video box in the upper left hand corner
(connecting to NASA select), whereupon, my system screen froze (Restarted,
tried unselecting audio....then SPBOpenDevice problem).

Other initial crashes were solved by closing all other applications,
turning off screen saver, and Decor (desktop textures).

I'm upgrading from sys 7.1 to 7.5 Monday. Might that help?

Thanks in advance for any help.
