Have an interesting minor (but agitating) problem. I have SWx 2006, 4.1
recently installed on a new PC. I've always had my notes on the drawing in
Word, and have always edited them in the drawing by double clicking the
notes to make changes and not by right clicking and choosing "edit with
document" method. Now, however, when I edit by double clicking, I get
"Failed to Launch Server Application". I can, however edit it using the
"edit with document" method. I've tried ending word in the task manager
with no luck. This does this on a fresh restart too with the same result.
(restart, start SWx only and try to edit) Like I said, this is a new
install on a new machine so I suspect a silly setting or something and have
wasted too much time poking around, so I figured I'd ask here if anyone else
had run into this and corrected it before. Any ideas?
This is due to the OLE interface not working correctly. You can test
this by inserting a word doc in another program like powerpoint or
something and then try double-clicking to edit. If it does not work in
another program then you will either need to try applying a service
pack to ms office, or reinstalling office all together.
Jeff - Thanks for the response! I tried as you said and have no problem
editiing Word within Powerpoint as suggested. That said, it's something
between Word and SWx. as I can edit an Excel workbook within SWx with no
problem, just Word is giving me issues....
Do you have Norton Anti-virus running with script blocking? We had this
issue a couple of releases ago. Symantic was not much help as the problem
would reappear after every AV update. We ended up dumping that bloated
