application error in Excel 97 for NT4.0

Posted by Chris Edwards on September 09, 1999 3:18 PM

We have just recently converted from Win 95 to NT 4.0 here at work. Since the conversion, I get a Dr. Watson application error in excel.exe. Exception: access violation (0xc0000005) Address: 0x306c25e4 when saving a document or just closing out of a document. I'm running Excel 97 and we have both Service packs 1 & 2 installed for Office 97 and also Service pack 4 for NT 4.0. I have ran Norton virus scan on all of the files with this problem and they are clean. They are all shared files also. Thanks for any help

Chris, I think because the file is shared that there is an access violation, so
Saving from Word or Excel Resets NTFS Security Permissions.
Have a look at this articel;

Hope it helps
