i get one error, followed by another error, take a look:
Error1' ">http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b371/axy1985/45.jpg
error followup' ">http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b371/axy1985/46.jpg
it happens when "registering componens"... i think it could be the .NET 1.1, since i have it installed, but several products that need .NET 1.1 are failing lately... i have tried reinstalling it. how to tell whether it's the .NET thing or not?

Yeah, wikipedia.

The last encarta I used was 98 Deluxe, now I know it's a .net app, I'll never use any new version.

nope, not at all. i use the spanish languged keyboard as well. it's not as if english had different letters or signs... /laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' />
there are exceptions... there is something i'm not quite able to write when i'm around here, but if i can't remember what it was, then it's not that important. i think it was some kind of punctuation... can't remember.
