So, the first step it to try running MathType directly from the harddrive, not from Word. If MathType isn't in your Dock, find it on yourhard drive at Applications > MathType 6. Be sure to watch out for thepop-up asking if you want to install Rosetta, and install it when itasks. It'll probably want to download something from Apple, so you'llhave to grant it access to the internet too, if it asks for that.If you're able to start MathType from the hard drive, you may not haveto reinstall it. If MathType won't open from the hard drive, theproblem is more serious than just the \"hooks\" that make it work withinOffice. The first step is to reinstall MathType and see if that works.If MathType opens from your hard drive, the next thing to try is tosee if you can copy an equation from MathType and paste it into a Word2008 document. If that works, save the document and close it. CloseMathType (don't just click the \"stoplight\"; close the program, eitherfrom the Quit command on the MathType menu, or the Command+Q shortcut.Reopen the document in Word 2008 and double-click the equation. If itopens, at least you know that part works. If it gives you the sameerrors you reported in your original post, try reinstalling MathType.Write back and let us know how it goes.-- Bob MathewsDirector of TrainingDesign Science, Inc.bobm at dessci.com =newsFREE fully-functional 30-day evaluation of MathTypeMathType, MathFlow, MathPlayer, MathDaisy, Equation Editor
