You can launch multiple instances of Microsoft System Info from Publisher and the Office 95 programs. This is not useful and can consume some Graphics Device Interface Module (GDI) resources and memory. Also, Publisher does not automatically close all the opened instances of Microsoft System Info when you quit Publisher. After quitting Publisher, you must close each of the extra Microsoft System Info windows manually.

NOTE: In Windows 95, the task bar shows all the extra instances of System Info.


When you click the System Info button in the About dialog box, you are starting a separate program called Microsoft System Info. Microsoft System Info, versions 2.0 and earlier, are multi-session programs; you can run more than one copy simultaneously.

NOTE: Microsoft Office 97 for Windows includes Microsoft System Info, version 2.51. This version of Microsoft System Info is not a multi- session program; you can only run one copy at once.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Office 97 for Windows.
