i get an error when trying to embed items into word or when i receive word documents with embedded objects.
out of 10 gx270's, half can open them and half cannot. they all have the same software and hardware configs and i am unable to narrow down why some workstations can open or create documents with embedded objects.
the error is:
microsoft word can't start the application required to open this object.
an error occurred and this feature is no longer functioning properly. would you like to repair this feature now?
clicking yes brings up this error:
the server application, source file, or item cannot be found.
make sure that the application is properly installed, and that it has not been deleted, moved, or renamed.
my ms research brings up these kb articles, none which seem to apply exactly to my situation:
thanks for the help!
