intro story Coast / Estuary

Coast / Estuary

Coastal systems are among the most dynamic physical systems on earth and are subject to a large variety of forces. The morphodynamic changes occurring to coastlines worldwide are of great interest and importance. These changes occur as a result of the erosion of sediments, its subsequent transport as bed load or suspended load, and eventual deposition. 
Estuaries are partly enclosed water bodies that have an open connection to the coast. Estuaries generally have one or more branching channels, intertidal mudflats and/or salt marshes. Intertidal areas are of high ecological importance and trap sediments (sands, silts, clays and organic matter).
Within the Delft3D modelling package a large variation of coastal and estuarine physical and chemical processes can be simulated. These include waves, tidal propagation, wind- or wave-induced water level setup, flow induced by salinity or temperature gradients, sand and mud transport, water quality and changing bathymetry (morphology). Delft3D can also be used operationally e.g. storm, surge and algal bloom forecasting.

Delft3D 4.04.01 Pre and Post Processor crashes "Grow Grid from Splines"

Delft3D 4.04.01 Pre and Post Processor crashes "Grow Grid from Splines"

I setup Delft3D 4.04.01 pre and post processor and was going through the tutorial for RGFGRID. When I attempt to perform the example in Section 6.4.1 A new method to generate curvilinear grids using the RGFGRID component, the RFGGID Window disappears when I execute the command GROW GRID FROM SPLINES.  I have tried many different times and even reinstalled all of the software and it still crashes.  I even loaded both the Land Boundary and the Spline files from the tutorial directory and the program bombs (RGFGRID Window disappears) when I try to  execute grow grid from splines 

Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.
