Sharepoint Designer 2007 closes

Hi,
I am trying to modify the pages ( master page, pkspodcasts ) through Microsoft Office Sharepoint Designer 2007. The designer asks me to checkout the file ( which I do ), but soon after that the designer instance closes. I have the SP1 for designer installed. Is there anything else I need to do?

Regards,

There is nothing specific to PKS that you need to do, however there is something in SharePoint Designer that you can try to help diagnose what the issue might be.  Basically Microsoft has included diagnostics to attempt to help in troubleshooting any office client when it closes abnormally.  You can find more information here:

The summary being for SharePoint Designer you would want to:

  • On the Help menu, click Office Diagnostics
  • Click Continue, and then click Start Diagnostics

Hope that helps.
