  • GALMOD error

    Hi,
    the facts:

    I have GALMOD.EXE in a share accessible by my users.
    Users log in for the first time and click on Outlook. A script automatically creates thel ocal profile and opens outlook; then they can open the share where GALMOD.EXE is, and run it from there.
    They get the first screen where GALMOD displays theyr profile; clicking OK they can access their GAL and enter the changes they want.
    We've been using this for the past 5 months: no problem.

    The problem:

    some users (just in specific machines) open GALMOD and receive the following:
    -"initialization error: failed to find profile"-

    The tentatives:

    - deleted the local profile created via script and created one through control panel: no luck!
    - let the script re-create the profile: no luck!
    - taken machine out and in domain: no luck!
    - deleted profiles in ....\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook: no luck!
    searched here and here: same as above!

    Now we are out of ideas.....
    Anyone ?

    Thanks just for reading.

        Here's the sad solution:
        Re-image the machine> it works!!
        I am still bothered by what could have been but, hey let's face it:
        fault finding time: 5 hours and still searching
        re-imaging: 20 minutes.
        You make the math..

        Cheers!
