When you start Microsoft Office Project Server 2003, the WSSWiz.exe file stops responding and you receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Application has generated an exception that could not be handled. Process id=0xbf4 (3060), Thread id=0x174 (372). Click OK to terminate the application. Click CANCEL to debug the application.


To resolve this issue, do not run the WSSWiz.exe file directly. Instead use the Autorun program. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Insert the Project Server 2003 CD.
  2. Click the Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services link, and then click the Windows SharePoint Services Configuration Wizard link.

    This link runs the WSSWiz.exe file but before doing so checks to see if Windows SharePoint Services is installed.
Note Windows SharePoint Services must be installed before you run the WSSWiz.exe file.
