Office 2k Installer always starts when I start a VB APP

Postby Alexander Arthur » Thu, 18 Dec 2003 05:01:51 GMT

On windows 2003 server with terminal services activated we 
have Office Proffessional install and configured with 
other applications wriiten in VB. Our problem is each time 
we start the VB application it starts the Office installer 
and the same user can go through the installation and 
logoff and then relogin the installer starts again. I have 
installed Office with all the options set to Run From my 
Local Machine and yet still I have this problem. I will 
appreciate any helkp I can get on this issue.

1.Office Installer always runs when starting an Office App

2.Starting VB app causes Windows Installer to start

When I start a VB app on a Windows XP SP2 machine, I get a dialog from 
Windows Installer with the following dialog: Please wait while Windows 
configures Microsoft Office XP... Gathering required information.

If I sign on as a different user, I don't get the dialog.  I thought it was 
an issue with his profile, so I re-created it but I still get the same 
error.  The program had worked fine until a couple of days ago.  There 
hasn't been any changes to the machine at all.

Any help would be appreciated.


3.Windows installer starts when vb app starts

I have a PC that will start the windows installer program when a vb app 
starts.  It is trying to configure MS Office XP for some reason.  If the 
user has admin rights on the machine, I don't get the dialog box.  Any ideas 
what would cause this behavior?


4.System tray icon does not always show when starting app when Windows starts

I am using VS2005 (vb) and I have a program that starts when Windows boots 
up.  Occasionally the icon that should appear in the system tray does not 
show up.  The program is still running in memory but the tray icon is not 
there.  If I start the program after Windows has booted up the icon shows 
every time.  I am assuming that the reason is due to the icon being created 
before the system tray is loaded/running.   I have used a timer with "dim 
notifyicon1 as new notifyicon" every few seconds and that works but I am 
afraid I am eating up memory doing that or is that "ok" to do?

Is there any way to detect if the system tray is not running so I can delay 
the creation of the tray icon until it is?
