Clip art gallery will not open.  Get message stating that clip art gallery 
cannot access clip catalog.  Have restarted computer.  I am able to log on to

If it is the Gallery and not the Organizer, re-register the Gallery.
Double-click ARTGALRY.EXE, a message will say it is registered.
The file is in a folder similar to this
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ARTGALRY

The Gallery has its own help files with troubleshooting help.

2.Clip gallery user database failed to open when trying to insert clip art

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I have a teacher that gets the message "Clip gallery user database failed to open" every time she tries to insert clip art in Word or PowerPoint. I have already tried to trash the preferences (and empty the trash) for the clip gallery in the user's library and I have tried repairing her permissions. If logged in as another user, the clip gallery works fine.

This is driving me CRAZY and I really need to move on to other support issues. Please help!

3."no clips" displayed in clip art gallery for specific user

Version: 2004
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)

Hoping some one can help,

When logged in as a specific user, when trying to insert clip art, there are listed categories, however there are no clips displayed?

There seems to be no issues when other users log in.

The specific user account is a generic account that multiple users log in with and occurs on both intel and powerpc machines.

If any more information is needed please let me know.


4.delete duplicate clip art images in Microsoft Clip Gallery

I have downloaded many images (from the MS site) into Word 97's Clip Gallery. 
Unfortunately, I've discovered that a lot of the clips were actually 
duplicates of already-existing clips. As a result, the Clip Gallery takes 
about 90 seconds to load, and it's driving me bonkers!

How can I EFFICIENTLY remove the duplicate clips from the Gallery?

 I used to be able to bring up the full clip art gallery 
window by clicking on Insert, then Picture, then

to view any pictures.
   Does anyone know how I can restore the former clip art 
gallery window when I go into "Insert" on the toolbar?
