    Re: application failed to initialise (2003 sp2)

    No MSKB says to restart Windows however, this does not help if only life was so simple
    I haven't upgraded XP Pro SP2 except for updates
    * I have tried restarting windows
    * Repairing Office 2003
    * Removing Office 2003 and reinstalling
    What eles can one do <img src=/S/bouncenburn.gif border=0 alt=bouncenburn width=31 height=31>

    From reading the KB, it might be worth re-installing Windows XP SP2 (I mean re-install the SP2 Service Pack, not the whole of Windows).
