    MS Project 2007 does not start after Upgrade Install

    I just finished an upgrade install of 10 from 7. I tested all programs and only had a problem with Avast and Microsoft Office Project 2007. The Avast problem is repaired.

    I double click to start the program > the "Office Project 2007" splash screen shows > the spinning orb blinks and it sits there for 15-20 seconds > then a "Configuration in Progress" window comes up > then a "Please wait while Windows configures MS Project" windows comes up > then I get an error : "There is not enough memory to complete this operation" > and that's it.
    (There is plenty of memory)

    I inserted my installation DVD and tried a Repair. No joy.

    I've tried to start Project in Safe Mode. No joy.

    Wondering what to try next. Any ideas?

    OK, so the solution was pleasantly simple.

    I uninstalled Project 2007 and reinstalled it, using my (one-time) product key.
    It installed, worked fine, and was activated immediately. It even retained all of my settings preferences and previous files list from before.
    (You call that an uninstall? Yikes!)

    Office 2003 had a brief hiccup after uninstalling Project 2007, but it was resolved internally quickly.

    Very weird, but all is good now.
