windows home server 2011 launchpad

Finally got around to installing WHS and am having one problem.  On my most used system, the Launchpad will not run.  The system is Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.  It works on other Windows 7 systems in the house.  This is the message I get when I try to start it:

Windows Server Computer Launchpad has stopped working

Windows can check online for a solution to the problem.
