WAD run-time error message

I run WAD from BEx in a Citrix environment (so I don't have WAD installed locally).

We have recently switched our Citrix servers from W2000 to W2003, and I seem to have a problem with WAD.

I can open WAD from within BEx no problem, when I open up a Template which aleady exists sometimes system says it has opened the template but nothing shows on the screen, but sometimes it does appear.

However, the major problem is that when I then close the Template Window or the WAD window, I get an error window:

Run-time error '398'

Application-defined or object-defined error.

We applied some patches to our Dev and Test environments but this problem also occurs in Live environment so I don't think the problem is the patches.

My colleagues who don't use Citrix do not see the same problem.

We have BIW version 3.0B Patch 11 3020.11.299

I have run Installation check on BEx and most are green, there are some yellows in SAP GUI core components and Microsoft core components, but there is one red in additional components (vsflex71.ocx which is at version

Can anybody please help?
