EnvironmentProduct: Progress

Question/Problem Description
Installed 9.1E of Progress and I cannot see the AppBuilder.

Other icons appear on the Progress Program Menu, but not the AppBuilder.

Cannot start the AppBuilder from proenv window by using the command: 
prowin32.exe -p _ab.p

Get error 293 and 492 when trying to start the AppBuilder manually from the proenv window.
