Tony, we are recently running into the same issue. If you are only looking to use Flipshare to save and/or compress your videos, we found that you can do the following after clicking through the error messages: Use the top menu and select Share -> Online -> Others ...
You can then upload this compressed video to other sharing sites. - Ryan
look on your computer under either My Videos or My Documents and see if you find the FLIPSHARE DATA file. You can open that file and then see 3 files, videos, flipshare and previews. If you have an external hard drive, back all these up on that. If you don't, then try copying and pasting all three files or the one flipshare Data file somewhere else on your computer away from My Videos and my documents. that way when you uninstall the flipshare software it won't take those files with it, or shouldn't. then when you reinstall all, if the files remained, fine, if not copy and paste from wherever you stored them back to where they originally were stored by Flipshare. Your other choice is to take the videos you have on computer, put them into Windows Live Movie Maker and make a movie of them onto DVD. then you'll have them for sure. Just open the movie maker click on Add Videos & Photos and find the Flipshare Data file, then the video file and choose which ones to make your DVD. here's link to movie maker: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-essentials you do have to create a name and login, but its all free and wonderful! just don't make your DVDs too large remember a regular disk holds 4.7GB 120 min. Have fun.

On Windows, if you change your library location and then uninstall and re-install FlipShare, FlipShare will not remember where you changed your library location to and will create a new library in the default My Documents location. To restore contents of your library you should shutdown FlipShare, delete the 'FlipShare.db' file located in the 'My Documents>My Videos>FlipShare Data>' folder, re-launch FlipShare, select the option to 'Browse' for you library and select the location of your library. On the Mac, FlipShare will remember where you changed your library location to. Or go into controll panel and remove from there

The original "Flip Video For PC" software that came preinstalled on my Flip worked fine. But after being nagged to "upgrade" to FlipShare, I experienced the same crash problem mentioned here. Even worse, the FlipShare installation nuked the original program files from the Flip!
In my case, I think my computer's processor did not meet the minimum system requirements of the newer FlipShare software. The original "Flip Video For PC" software requires a 2Ghz P4 or higher; the FlipShare software says it requires a dual-core 4Ghz or higher. So when the FlipShare software tries to load the ippvideodecoder.ax module on an under-powered processor, it just crashes. Bad design.
I bet that most of the people posting this same problem here have processors that are "borderline".
Anyway, here's how to get the original Flip Video software back and re-install it on your computer:
Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility if you screw up your Flip or lose your videos. I can only tell you this method worked for me.
1) Use Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs to uninstall FlipShare and 3vix.
Important: this guy tells you how to back up any existing videos on your Flip BEFORE you format it.
After formatting, I had some initial trouble with the installation not finding my (empty) Flip. Here's a workaround: the installation creates a folder called "FlipVideo Updater Support Files", and within that a subfolder called "files_to_install". Copy the entire contents of that subfolder to the root of your Flip. Re-run the installation and it should now be recognized.
4) Bonus: once you've got the old software reinstalled and working, you may want to disable the annoying "Upgrade To FlipShare" nag screen that bugs you every time you run the software. Simply browse your Flip and delete the following file:
