Hi all, 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 everything. --leo -- leoa at stanford.edu ======================================================================= ...But I don't Have to know an answer.
