    screen during initial installation.

    E. Windows 98?

    2. If Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows Server 2003, which Service Pack?
    You can find this:

  5. You're posting from the web interface to newsgroups.
    Did you try searching for this code?

    It appears that others have found some kind of resolution
    by updating their Java support (?) YMMV.

    If you need more help you are going to have to provide more details,
    such as extracts from any log files you find and need help interpreting.

    Good luck

    Tried the JRE(Java) reinstall/update...no help.
    Tried to make sure the right services were started...no help.
    Tried Reinstalling SP2, IE, AntiVirus...no help.
    Tried Resetting the TCP/IP...no help.
    Finally, went to:
    ....reinstalled the update software and I'm back in business.

  7. Thanks for posting your solution.

    It makes more sense to me than the Java runtime reinstall
    but that still seems to be the one which has the most positive
    feedback in threads about this code (0x80240036).
