I have a CD copy of Cool Edit Pro. I've run the CD and I get an error message:
System has not been configured correctly to run Cool Edit Pro. Please run setup again.

What is it exactly that I need to reconfigure? I'm running Windows XP Pro.

I'm running Cool Edit 2000 under Windows XP, which has worked just fine until today. I had some other problems which are now cleared up (I have no idea what caused them or how they got fixed - much rebooting) but Cool Edit stills gives the ERROR. Neither suggestion above worked. Any other ideas?

This is an error with the Windows operating system itself. The solution to this problem, as stated on the Microsoft Knowledge base, is to reinstall the application again.
