Default playground skeleton application

Playing a game that I downloaded from Shockwave. Game quit and I received the following:

playground skeleton application has encountered an error

I don't have a clue as to what this means. I tried to google it, but not much there and what there was WAYYYYYY over my head. Do I need to be concerned?

Try uninstalling it and then re-download it and install it fresh.

I tried uninstalling & reinstalling the game player, & the game site, but it didn't work. When I tried to download the Playground Skeleton app, it brought up a page to scan my drivers to see if they needed updated, but to fix the problem, you had to buy their software. So, I didn't buy it. Any other suggestions to bypass this?

Sounded like malware to me at first, then i googled and it appears to be some game developing application. Google really doesn't have much to say about it. Personally I don't like the looks of it. I personally wouldn't use it, but I will defer to one of our resident pros. Hang tight .

Thanks, FEDUP. I figured there was something off about it, so I didn't do anything with it. I only get that error on certain games on that particular site, & they are SUPPOSED to be compatible with my Vista program. Yeah, right!
