First off, this pertains to a Mathematica 4.0 Windows 2000 installation.
I recently had a corrupted partition, and spent a few days restoring all my
files. When I launched Mathematica, it got to the "initializing defaults
notebook" and then simply quit. After that, I put in my windows 2k cd and
had it repair the installation (my understanding is that it replaced most
files.) I also reinstalled mathematica. Nothing helped. Still, it gives
the splash screen, briefly showing the menus, but after it gets to
"initializing defaults notebook" - vanishes. Mathematica is the most
important piece of software on my computer by far, and right now I'm tearing
out my hair. Any help would be appreciated before I grow completely
desperate, reformat my hard drive, and spend several days reinstalling
leoa at stanford.edu
...But I don't Have to know an answer. I don't feel frightened by
not knowing things. By being lost in the mysterious universe without
having any purpose, which is the way it really is, as far as I can tell,
possibly. It doesn't frighten me.
