Calendar Print Assistant starts, then disappears - trying to use with Outlook 2010

It's a really shameful situation that Outlook 2010 can't properly print a monthly calendar. I have gone to the MS Downloads site, and downloaded and installed Calendar Printing Assistant. This version clearly states that it supports Outlook 2010, 32 Bit.

I have the prerequisite of .NET framework 3 - in fact 3.5 is installed on this computer.

When I start the program, the title  "Calendar Printing Assistant" appears briefly, then disappears.

I don't know where to start to debug this situation.  There is no notation anywhere in Event Viewer.

I guess that I have nothing to lose if I install .NET Framework 4 - I'm thinking that the installation might repair some condition.

BTW. this is an up to date Windows XP pro.

Thanks.

Larry

Surprisingly - you might be better off installing the exact version required.  Although .NET 3.5 is supposed to include all of 3.0, some apps require the specific version to be installed.  Try installing 3.0 as that is what was required and see if that resolves your problem.

I dropped down to .NET 3.0, but it still doesn't start.  I don't have the time to test every single Startup item or to reinstall Windows.  They'll just have to suffer and hope the MS fixes this problem after 5 years of existence.

Good advice, but this problem seems to be associated with some damage to the OS
