We're using Win NT 4 workstation, MS office 97. When people received an e-mail has clip art insert or attached file(wiht clip art)on it, they can't open the clip art, but when I un-installed puplisher 98 on that system(workstation), they can open the clip art.
Any comment or be able show me how to fix it please.

Have you checked the file association the clipart with Publisher 98 installed? Sounds like, when Publisher is installed, Windows is telling Publisher to open the clip art, and its failing for whatever reason.

Should be able to fix it like this:

Without Publisher installed, open the clipart and verify which program is opening it (probably Paint, but could be something else). Then save a clip art file to the desktop, right-click and choose Open With. Then select in the list the program that you used to open the clip art when Publisher was NOT installed. Check the "Always use this program..." box and click OK. This will change the default association for the filetype from using Publisher to using the other program.

Hope this helps.
