Re: Packaging Wizard error -2147221163 more info



Thanks so much, BOTH of you. I did do a complete reinstall of my entire
developer's software before I put out the S.O.S. Maybe I should completely
REMOVE it before reinstalling? How should I be sure it is truly removed
before reinstalling? As we all know, folders and files stay even after
REMOVE is selected.

Thanks again for the references.
Kathy
