Outlook hangs when opening attachment while Vantage is running

How do you start vantage with a command line shortcut? Are you bypassing .vtg file altogether?

Here is the likely problem...

If you "end task" on vantage.exe in task manager after
vantage is started it will probably work. Other than that
you can start vantage with a command line shortcut like
version 3 did to bypass the splash screen.

------------------------------------------

2-26-01 670350MPS - OPEN - SCR 1659

Various computers cannot run various programs when Vantage is running.
QC and the foreman's
office cannot run excel. Dave Stultz cannot run Autocad. Jodi cannot
run Winfax from
report Builder. Shelly and I cannot email from excel. This is a bug in
vantage. Users
should end-task on vantage.exe after starting vantage (vantage will stay
running).
The splash screen is stuck on causing this problem.
Running vantage from the command line (or a shortcut) can bypass this
problem.

Resolution:

SCR 1659, planned for Vantage 5.00

Tester's note: This problem occurs on some computers, such as Marcy's,
but
not others.

Prior to Cairo, the Vantage executable (vantage.exe) would go away when
Vantage took down the splash screen. As of Vantage 5.00.005 -- did not
find
an SCR for this change -- the vantage.exe program keeps running until
the
user exits Vantage. Per Development, the program should quit when the
splash screen comes down.

"command line"? Do you mean just creating a standard shortcut on the
desktop to fix it?
