I agree with others that you need to get more info on what you are in for fighting this. You will need to be prepared. Ask the Dean where you can get a copy of the procedures explaining the process, what standard they will use in looking at the situation, and the part of the code they claim you violated.
Think about how the school will look at this from those standards. Were it not you, would you believe what you are saying? They will probably want to know: Why had you not already started the exam software when the exam started rather than waiting? If you realized the error during the exam, why did you not alert anyone (e.g. a proctor) during or immediately after the exam?
