V'works won't start up

Recommended Posts

I am away from my office and (and unfortunately my VW install disks) and cannot start up VW 12 on my PC..keep getting an error message from microsoft.

Talked to tech support who told me to reinstall after: trying to start in safe mode (unsuccessfully), removing preferences, and finally downloading Quicktime 7.3, (I had a newer version and also vw 12.5 which I guess is trouble).

I was wondering if theres any other tricks I could try.

It was working famously all along.



XP VW 12.5
