I have a citrix server running on a Windows Server 2003 with Office 2003 installed. After running without any problems for years and without any GPO changes, Power point and only power point started to crash whenever it was opened. Every other office 2003 program works without any issues.
After doing some testing I found the issue to be a setting somewhere in a GPO. I can remove the GPO and power point works, readd the GPO and power point crashes.
The GPO it's self is pretty extensive as far as Computer Configuration's go so trying to eliminate 1 setting at a time would be counter productive. Has anyone else seen an issue similar to this and any idea's as far as what Computer config settings could be causing it?
Do you see an error message when it crashes? That may give us a hint as to where the issue lies.
I'd guess video drivers, hardware acceleration, or a utility or add-in of some sort that PPT doesn't like. I believe all of these could be set via GPO, no?
