  1.

Copy a "K2Studio.config" file from a working K2.net 2003 Studio machine and overwrite the existing "K2Studio.config" file on the faulty machine. The default installation location is "<drive>:\Program Files\K2.net 2003\Bin".

Note: The only setting in the "K2Studio.config" file that is specific to the installation is the following:

<DataSources>
  <DataSource Path="LDAP://DC=k2mega,DC=local" Type="ActiveDirectory" NetBiosName="K2MEGA" />
</DataSources>

  
The “DataSource” contains the LDAP path that point to the default Active Directory, if this varies from your requirements please update the section with the valid LDAP path.
 
  2.The other alternative is to reinstall K2.net 2003 Studio.
