I recently had a system crash, had to format the hard drive, couldn't find my WIN98 CD so loaded WIN95.

Everything went well and most applications reloaded without a problem.

Tried reinstalling Corel Professional Office 7. It goes through most of the installation process and at the end aborts with the message: "C017 caused an invalid page fault in module KERNEL32.DLL at 0137:BFF798FB" and the only alternative I have is to CLOSE.

What is causing this, and how can I get around it. I NEED my Quattro Pro program!!!!

ANY help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Doug

As far as I know it is. I've had it installed before on 95.

Just some information on why page faults occur

When an invalid page fault occurs, an unexpected event occurs in the Microsoft Windows operating system. An invalid page fault typically indicates that a program improperly attempted to use random access memory, for example, when a program or a Windows component reads or writes to a memory location that is not allocated to it. When this occurs, the program can potentially overwrite and corrupt other program code in that area of memory.

An invalid page fault may occur when parameters are passed between programs and the Windows 95 operating system. An invalid parameter may cause a program to execute invalid instructions, which results in an invalid page fault. This
behavior usually occurs because a program incorrectly passes data that Windows or a Windows-based program cannot interpret.

No answer yet but at least here are some reasons why and we can go from there.
