          One More thing I forgot to say is that this is when you first click on it and then it exits. It never brings up the navigator window and I have tried to reinstall it 3 times already

          Thanks

            Hi. I know this response is too many years late, but I'm putting it in case someone (like me a few days ago) needs to connect to a legacy server using legacy tools:

            This error is caused by the installer, sometimes it does not adequately register the OLE/COM objects provided in nav8cmd.dll

            So, to correct it:

            - open a command window
            - change to the directory where the navigator program files reside (In my case c:\orant\bin)
            - type the following command: regsvr32 nav8cmd.dll

            You should receive a message that the DLL was correctly registered. After that you can use the navigator without problems.

            Cheers.
