    O2K SR1 (new install) won't stay open (Office 2K)

    Loaded original O2K premium on Dell PC w/Win2K. Went to get SR1a from MS. They had an online install, instead of download and install. Did that. Rebooted. Then, couldn't keep any office app open for longer then 5 seconds. Repaired installation - still nothing stayed open. Had to completely uninstall, and re-install. This time, I'm not going to do the SR1 update. Any one heard of this problem? I've been using O2K sr1a on other pcs with out this problem for years.

    As I recall, must keep the original Off 2k CD in the drive for sr1a to update, whether online or from the *.exe that downloads to hd.

    One common reason Office apps close themselves immediately is a license key problem:

    License problem is what is was. The co. had put Pro on, from CD. I uninstalled, and put Premium, on, my copy (yes, I'm a registered user). But, I couldn't find my key, so I got one from a trusted source. Then with the update, it must have driven them crazy. I had just never seen this particular problem, with no error messages, before. -- Leah
