Good afternoon,

I have recently upgraded a machine to Office Xp and now, when attempting to run any application, get a GDI.EXE error.  I cannot find any help on this and would seriously be greatful for any assistance.

Seems to be a video card drivers issue. Update the drivers

GDI is graphics device interface. Video card drivers are a start, then again you'll probably get a GDI.exe error trying to install the drivers.

In this case, I would just start from scratch and reinstall Windows, or if you have WinXP and a restore point, start from there.

Good luck
