View Full Version : Publisher 97

I'm having problems with MS Publisher 97 on Win 98SE. It was OK until I added the wizards so that I could make a couple of calendars for next year and then as soon as I tried to open the programme it reported an 'illegal operation' and did not load at all. I had previously had the wizards loaded without problem.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times from a clean boot and with every other programme closed down (using 'End-it-all'). No luck. I have run WinDoctor and System Check in Norton Utilities and they report no problems.

Details of the 'Illegal Operation' are:

MSPUB caused an invalid page fault in
module <unknown> at 0000:00000017.

Any clues? Many thanks...

The flood of entires suggests that this isn't going to be easy.

I would suggest another removal of Pub 97, but delete the directory it was in afterward (they never completely delete).
See if that helps. It doesn't look promising, though.
