The batch file helps a great deal. So did setting WDE to Win98 compatibility mode (I use XP to the newest updates). I keep the batch file in my Dmod's directory (folder). I run it when I want to use WDE for that specific dmod project. Basically all it does is run WDE, checks if it crashes, runs the backup if it does not, checks to make sure I actually updated something (not just went into WDE and exited), and if so deletes the oldest backup and renames the others accordingly.

Here is my workit.bat file. Hope it helps you!
