Dear Dr. Mueller-Sigmund:
It is likely that you are having some problems with some core system
files that ProCite uses. Your OLE libraries must be registered in the
ProCite Preferences file as well as the PPC Registration Database. I
am assuming that the OS upgrade may have damaged/confused the
entries for the files listed above.
Please follow the instructions below:
1. Locate your system folder.
2. Find the 2 following files and place them in the Trash. ProCite
Preferences, PPC Registration Database.
3. Reboot your computer.
4. Launch ProCite and try clicking on the menus again.
Please let us know if you are still experiencing difficulties,
> First of all, I would suggest that you upgrade to 8.5.1 which is
> substantially more robust than 8.5. You should also upgrade to
> ProCite 4.0.3, but it sounds like you have already done that.
> I don't understand the message that you quote, but if it referred to
> Microsoft OLE Library" that would make sense. This is an extension
