ACADR14.01 install problem

Alright, I posted a message here a while back about a network install that
just isn't going right. We purchased some Dell's recently, and the ones
with Win98se on them have troubles with AutoCAD even installing.

The first problem I had was AutoCAD simply crashed during install. It had a
conflict with some VBA component. I've never run into this until now. It
was suggested that I install AutoCAD with a custom setup and uncheck VBA. I
did so. Everything installed fine, and I thought I was in the clear.

The user who got this machine is currently having problems with it. Certain
commands flat out don't work. The Object Snap toolbar for instance doesn't
work, but if you use the Object Snap settings menu, this works fine. Trim
to Block doesn't appear to work at all (doesn't recognize the command).
Trim does though. Insert works as the command prompt version, but selecting
it to get the dialog sort of works. If I open up a new drawing area, I get
the dialog, but when I select a file to insert and press ok, it hits an
error "null".

We have a script that inserts typical layers for us. Once these layers are
inserted, the Insert dialog won't work at all. It just flashes on the
screen, and has a "null" error.

I'm getting ready to format the computer and reinstall (since I know this
will work), but I was hoping before it comes to that, if someone might know
what the trouble is.

Thanks in advance,

John Pierson
