ALT key crashes Carrara

Recently, touching the alt key crashes Carrara 8.5 build 132 and I lose everything.  I am a frequent user of the alt key for navigation.  I recently installed Vue 11, and this started happening.  What kind of overlap could I be experiencing?  Any ideas?  I’d hate to have to purge my system to start from scratch but I really need to have the ALT key.

BTW, where can I get a download link for the latest beta?  I read the post in the Carrara discussion forum to obtain the serial number, but I don’t see a download link.

If you are not on a Mac, look inside the Application Event Log for an application crash entry. I’d be curious to see what it says…and I might be able to point you toward a cause.

Just hitting the ALT key is definitely extremely weird as a root cause. There must be something more going on.
