Hi Ammar,

Well,from that link, I find that there are 3 hot fixes for SP2, none of which I have installed. All say to install only if you are havin those specific problems, which I don't think I am. I'll givce it some thought, and may install them. I may just try installing it all on a Virtual PC and test there first, and see how it goes.

This error that I get is interesting. Seems to have to do with registration of the DLL.

I'll post back how things go.
