After installing windows xp pro and then office 2000, publisher has some strange colors. Background is hot pink and the document is a bluish green color. Now I would say it was some kind of glitch on this system but, a big but, I just upgraded my work system to xp pro from w2k and publisher is showing the same colors there. I tried a repair and restore from the help menu with no effect. Here is a screen shot http://www.**-**.com/ every where to fix this with no clue. Only thing I have not done is do a remove and reinstall. Thanks in advance

publisher 2000 has strange colors under xp pro
I have the same problem, but if you go to Tools-Options and remove the check mark next to 'Improve screen and printer color matching', the display will return to normal. I don't know why this happens but you have to do it each time you start Publisher.
I have installed office 2000 disc 1 and the update. Then installed office 2000 disc 2 and update. I open publisher run wizard and all is fine until I move my mouse..then bam gone the program just closes!! Nothing shows up in the event viewer and I have unistalled and reinstalled on 2 diff. pcs both running xp pro. I have checked the help files on MS site under publisher 2000 but none apply to me. Please help I need this program?!?!
BTW: Word, excel and powerpoint all work fine...they came on disk 1.
