You do not need thissoftware update."I thought that maybe the problem with IE7 was also messingup the reinstallation of the HP software, so I:- Went to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and removed IE7 (leaving me with IE6).- Uninstalled the HP software (by putting in the CD and selecting "Uninstall").- Reinstalled the HP software, after which I was able to use Director.- Reinstalled IE7, after which I was able to use Director but only with the Alt-Space trick described above.- Ran the CIT207355-HPCOM-PATCH-v8.exe patch, after which I was able to use Director normally again. navigate here Previously hooked up to old computer then installed on new computer a year ago.
Microsoft says that if you have SP3 then you can't uninstall IE7, which is true -- there is no uninstall option now.So I tried the alt-shift trick, and also downloaded the HP patches, and I can get the director to open a great big blank window with no icons in it, and no menu up top.
