CAUSE
This problem may occur if you install a Microsoft Office program in a location that is different from a separate installation of the same version of Office. Therefore, the following conditions are true:
  • The computer has two or more copies of the same version of the Script Editor.
  • The computer has two or more copies of the Msenv.dll file.
Depending on which Office program that you use the Script Editor in first, only one of the Msenv.dll files is registered. When you try to use a second copy of the Script Editor, two Msenv.dll files load into memory. Therefore, a conflict occurs. Additionally, the Script Editor unexpectedly quits.
WORKAROUND
To work around this problem, repair the Office installation.

To repair Microsoft Office 2003, follow these steps:
  1. Quit all Office programs.
  2. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.
  3. In the Currently installed programs list, click Microsoft Office 2003, and then click Change.
  4. On the Maintenance Mode Options page, click Reinstall or Repair, and then click Next.

  6. Click to select the Restore my Start Menu Shortcuts check box, and then click Install.
