Initial startup error

Dec 24, 2016 at 11:44 PM
I recently purchased a copy of NodeXL Pro and installed it on my windows 10 machine. The first time I tried to run it I saw the box asking to browse to my license. I selected the proper file and clicked 'ok'. Excel locked up and I had to exit. Now, each time I try to use NodeXL via the template I get an error that says:

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

This is followed by a lot of debug text that starts out as shown below:
