figured it out.  i had the .NET framework 2.0 instead of 1.1
the 2.0 was screwing up my VS2003 from working properly
i uninstalled 2.0 and installed 1.1

well thanks, but then you solved it yourself :)

one thing you may like to know is that apps build with framework 1.1 are not running on framework 2.0 so you need to include it in a redistribution
