Re: asking possible MS-Office conflict W/TS 4.0

Installing any MS Office higher than Office 97 will "destroy" the 16-bit
part of ODBC that is used by Omega 4.

However, several people reported that they do not have any problems with
that, but in most cases you will not be able to operate with TS4 normally
after installing Office 2000 or Office XP (and even uninstall of Office will
not help).

Somebody also emailed me that he copied all 16-bit ODBC dlls before
installing Office 2000 and copied them back after the install - this will
work for sure, but I do not remember the details (exact name of the dlls

I hope you'll receive more detailed help from the fellow omega-listers.
