    "Installer is faulted"

    February 2, 2010  |   By silasper


    Previous versions worked great


    Installer did not work as promised


    Altough installer said MathType 6.0b was correctly installed it did not work.
    MathType support said it was an OLE problem and took me through steps to correct it but these didn't work either. I was than told of two choices. 1) I needed to remove MathType, reinstall MSWord and repeat. I asked what I could do to restore my computer to the previous verions (Time maciine and/or disk image). I was told that this was not possible. They couldn't telll me which files needed to be restored.

    In fact it took me about 5minutes to do a global search for MathType on the main disk and the mirror. Compared the two, replaced the new ones from the files on the mirror and this solved the problem.

    MathType support told me other users had the same problem that they had no idea what caused it.

    Sorry; 2nd choice was to use Time Machine to restore the entire disk.
