ArcCatalog fails to start and returns the following error:
"ArcCatalog.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created."
This is a known issue.
Delete the normal.gxt and ArcCatalog.gx file. These files will be re-created the next time ArcCatalog is started.
