Right - permissions is one reason Python doesn't install in Program
Files by default.

Outlook2000\addin.py is the 'entry-point' - although the entry-point is
actually the COM classes in that file, hence there is no __main__ block.
You will notice all the initialization done in the mainline (eg, the
code-block I mentioned yesterday) which would be a good place to start.
Sadly, crashers like this can be hard to pin down without a debugger and
debug versions of Python installed...
