Hi there,

I have the same problem with Powerpoint 2000 and Texpoint as Pierre and Jaap. 
My hope was, that the problem is solved with the new Texpoint version 3.2.1.
Unfortunately, this is not case.

I can add the following observations: 

    * The error message does not appear when I unload Texpoint before
      closing PP.
    * If the error message appears the PP customization file "ppt.pcb"
      is not updated.

Anything new about this topic?
