Hi hamiltonzfinnest, we have a Knowledge Base that you may not have yet discovered (it is one of the options in the Support menu at the top of this page).

The KB is searchable, so I entered "terminal" and the following is what popped up at the top of the list. This should help you fix the problem.

Launching the software reports 'An error occured starting *PROGRAMNAME*. The reason for the error could not be determined".

[Edit]: Tip: try searching the KB or these forums for a portion of the exact error message that you are seeing (such as "error could not be determined"). This should also have led to the above article.
