Hi,

I've just installed Office 2000 and applied patch SR2. Whenever I launch Word, Excel or Powerpoint, the application will just autoexit. I've scanned my pc for viruses but there isn't. Any idea why is this happening?

I am using Office 2000-SR2: No problems.
Maybe you need to re-install it all :(

Does the autoexit give any message ?

D'Mzzl!

Hi alexteh, Microsoft has posted this article on a fix for this and asked that if it doesn't work that you contact them directly for assistance.

but that was SR1 not 2, maybe worth a try

It did happend to me before when I installed the 2nd service pack. It did never worked again even I uninstall and reinstall Office 2K. I did have to reinstall Windows. With the Service Pack, Micrsoft seems to... validate (maybe) some unlegal or stolen serial numbers.
