Subject VAJ installation problem (was Re: Can't load default task list)
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2001 07:14:40 GMT

I don't use VAJ and have never played with the plugin, so I cannot
help.  I've changed the subject line and quoted your full mail so that
VAJ experts who have skipped this thread so far could jump in.
