I've the problem described below.

I installed internet explorer 5.0 SP1 and outlook express on a
workstation running Solaris 7 with the last recommended patches
(released on Aug 31 2001).
If I try to launch outlook express from IE5 it starts but the GUI
doesn't appear. I've the same behaviour also if I try to launch outlook
from the command prompt with IE5 already running.
Moreover, if I launch outlook as first it runs correctly, but when I try
to launch IE5 I've the same problem.
In all those situations, if I kill the process running correctly the GUI
of the second one appears.
I traced both the processes and it seems the second one loops trying to
read some dynamic libraries until a kill signal is received by the first
I've also the same problem with the previous release of IE5 and it
doesn't depend on which user runs both the programs.

Finally, a collegue of mine has Solaris 2.6 and both the programs runs

Do you know some trick to bypass the problem?

Thanks and sorry for my not perfect English.
