Create Random Points problem

Using ArcGIS 10.0, I am wanting to "Extract Multi Values to Points" from several rasters. The trouble is that I am first trying to generate 25,000 random points using the "Create Random Points" tool in Data Management tools, but the tool continues to crash citing the not-too-helpful "Error 999999". I've tried directing output to both Geodatabases and Workspaces, tried using a simple polygon for "Constraining Feature Class" and alternatively a "Constraining Extent" from existing feature polygons and/or rasters. Nothing seems to work; the tool continues to crash.

Please, does anybody know what I might be doing incorrectly, or if there is a known bug at work here? Kind regards, Greg
