How would one create an Application Object for messenger. I used the AOT and just the EXE but I get ikernel.exe errors. I'm on W2K through so the XP Hotfix won't help here. The odd thing is that I can go directly to the source directory and run setup.exe as long as I have a drive mapping. However, nvlsrv?? The exe that is created by the server for downloading IM through a web page, can put that in the path of the Application object and it runs everytime. I set it to setup.exe I get IKernel.exe error??? Any ideas?
