Office Manager not working under OS 9

I had some problems with OS 9 crashing (similar to what I was getting under 8.6). I did an upgrade instead of a clean install. I went back and clean-installed. Then I re-installed Office 98. It's working fine, except that the Office Manager control panel won't open. It's grayed out in the Control Panels window (as though it were open), it's in my menubar, "About" works fine and I can launch Office apps from it, but if I choose "Customize..." nothing happens.

Any thoughts?

I'm not an Office user, but there was an updater posted for Office earlier this week or late last week.

You might check for it at the Microsoft site and see what it is supposed to fix.

I'm sorry -- I forgot to mention: I did download and run the patch -- the second one, the one that "works", not the early one that got yanked. I downloaded it, too... Guess what? I didn't work!

I have Office 98 installed on OS 9, with both the 8.5, then the OS 9 updater patched. No where do I see an "Office" anything control panel. Just the config manager.

MS Office Manager--Menu Bar Manager if you will conflicts with Mac OS 9 as to customizing it.

See: http://www.microsoft.com/macoffice/P...fice98_OS9.htm

Hope this helps!

Sorry--I forgot to mention; the updates available in all cases do not address the conflict you are having with the MOM.

Thanks for the URL -- the solution is there. Holding down Command and Control when opening the MOM will allow it to launch. Odd that they wouldn't have fixed it in the patch, though.
