When launching apps I get a type 23 error. I have tried replacing the finder and system. Norton and Disk First aid find no problems.

What is a type 23 and how do I remedy the problem.

Thanks inadvance!

well, according to an Apple TIL article, 23 is
"23 dsNoPk6 - package 6 not present [International Utilities]"

hmmm, haven't a clue what's up with that, sorry

I am running 9.0.4 on a G3 350 w/ 192 MB Ram and VM off.

I have reinstalled the system twice - the last time was a complete reinstall of everything - system, apps all!

The problem seems to happen the most with InDesign (both 1 and 1.5), Norton Filesaver, Dreamweaver 3 and occasionally with random other apps.

Is it an error 23 or an error -23?
They are very different.
To me it sounds like a -23, which generally points to HD corruption of some sort.
Run DFA (disk first aid) on the drive and see what you get.

FYI: -23 = openErr - requested read/write permission doesn't match.

It is a type 23 error - not a -23 error.

I am also running a B&W G3/400, a pismo powerbook and a 9600/300 all with no grief like this!!!

Sorry, didn't see the bit about disk first aid - 18 hrs without sleep will do that :-)
In the case of a 23, I have absolutely no idea - tried all the standard troubleshooting stuff? PRAM etc? Prob won't help, but can't hurt to try.
