That is how it is with me also. My Inventor release(7) comm center works just fine, no errors, but all my Mech Desktop apps get the error. I have the newest Internet Explorer.

I seemed to have figured it out. I was using a Registry Cleaner and when I ran the cleaner it must have deleted some vital Mech. Desktop registry keys. I reinstalled Mech Desktop worked perfect, ran the cleaner, the problem came back. So now I have gotten rid of the cleaner, reinstalled again and all is well now.

You guys posted this problem back in March of 04.
I just starting getting same problem today.
Just so happens that I McAfee's ran this morning and cleaned up the registry and now MDT will not run. Getting the same 'CommCntrClientSink' error. I even checked Inventor and it is running fine.
My wife is now making the 50 minute drive to bring me my install CD's so I can correct the registry entries.
I am sure glad that these older message like yours stick around here for a while.
FYI, I am using,
XP Pro (service pack 2)
MDT 2005

This is a Registry error. Registry cleaners cause it. You do not have to reinstall autocad 2007. You can if you want but you only have a limited amout of times you can install or reinstall the program. It is better when you get this error to go into c:/programfiles/autocad 2007 and if the folders for the registry backup and open them and merge the backups back to you computer registry
