I think the title says it all... I'm getting this error in WinNT, could it be NTFS? I have SP3 installed.
MS Access didn't start either, exited with the same error message. There has got to be a solution to this! Anyone??

snoffy, most likely it is the NTFS. I have had many problems using DB applications with NTFS. They were solved using FAT.

Do you have any data suited on the network (DB or installation files)?

Thanks. Now I can stop wondering... damn, 'format c:' again =(

...cause it's not possible to convert NTFS to FAT huh? Just the other way around.

NEVER try to install IE4 on WIN95 if you like a helthy windows.

I was working on a PowerPoint add-in the other day and a client asked me "can you implement a feature which processes a chart when it's pasted into a slide from another deck?". It got me wondering how to hook into built-in ribbon events in Office.
