[AG-TECH] AG2.3 shared applications problems

Previously I have installed 2.1.2b.  I uninstalled the toolkit 2.1.2b 
before I installed 2.3.

I went to C:\Documents and 
Settings\<user>\ApplicationData\AccessGrid\Config\ApplicationDatabase and 
renamed it, but this didn't work.  So I tried looking for the 
SharedBrowser.log file from C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application 
Data\AccessGrid\Logs and I don't see a log file for sharedbrowser.  There 
are log files for shared presentation, shared rasmol, and shared 
questiontool, but no sharedbrowser.

By the way, SharedPresentation works.  So, among the included shared 
applications (shared browser, shared application, shared questiontool), 
only shared browser does not open.

Any suggestions?
