When you invoke the ClipArt Gallery, the Microsoft Office 7.0 clip artimages may be missing. These images will be missing if you Install Office7.0 and run ClipArt Gallery successfully, and you then install MicrosoftWorks for Windows 95, version 4.0, or Publisher for Windows 95, version3.0.

When you install Works or Publisher after you install Office, only the clipart images that come with Works or Publisher are available.
This problem occurs because Microsoft Office 7.0 does tell ClipArt Gallerywhere to put the Artgalry.cag file. Artgalry.cag contains all the clip artthumbnail images. This file is created the first time that you run ClipArtGallery. If you run ClipArt Gallery from Office, this file is created inyour Windows folder.NOTE: This problem does not occur if you install Publisher 3.0 or Works 4.0before you install Office 7.0, nor does it occur if you install Office 7.0first and do not run ClipArt Gallery until after you install Works orPublisher.
To resolve this problem, remove and reinstall the Office 7.0 clip artimages:

  1. In Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs. Click the Install\Uninstall tab, and click Microsoft Office.
  2. Click Add/Remove.
  3. Click Office Tools, and then click Change Option. Clear the Clip Art check box.
  4. Click OK, and then click Continue.

    After the Setup program has removed the Clip Art from your computer, run Office for Windows 95 Setup again.
  5. In Office Setup, click Add/Remove.
  6. Click Office Tools, and then click Change Option.
  7. Select the Clip Art check box, and click OK.
  8. Click Continue, and then allow the program to run until Setup is complete.
Once this process is complete, you can delete the old, unneededArtgalry.cag from your Windows folder.

The next time you run ClipArt Gallery, it will add all your Office 7.0clip art to your existing Works or Publisher clip art file.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Office for Windows 95. Weare researching this problem and will post new information here in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
