CD Rom shows dll error

  neil_raj 21:40 13 Mar 2006

Just loaded Win98SE onto a old laptop (PII) and hard drive (30GB) for a friend, everything top noth until trying to set up his broadband account through the CD Rom, it reads the CD Rom but return an illegal action message stating cannot find d:\Tiscali.exe .......details are error: DIRAPI.dll

Laptop is set to 16 Colors: cannot set it any higher... there is 194MB of RAM.... Can't be a "color" issue because the same Tiscali CD Rom on the 4.3GB disk works and loads fine... All I've done is bought a bigger 30GB Hard drive, the same programs are loaded etc... but it won't run the Tiscali disk.....?

Any ideas please.....thanks..... Neil.

That means that the wrong graphics card drivers are installed (or none at all).

DIRAPI.dll has some relation to shockwave so maybe that is missing.

Try sorting the graphics problem first. Get click here
SIW to id the card.
