Happy New Year folkses,
I had a problem with some dll error messages a few weeks ago. Thanks to info from this forum I extracted new copies of them from my Win98Cd and got rid of them.
BUT now I get different error messages:
When staring up- "RUNDLL Error loading powrprof.dll.The system cannot find the file specified." -or- "Error Starting Program A required .DLL file, POWRPROF.DLL was not found."
When opening/using numerous progs (eg SFC, Opera, IE6)- "Error starting program. The Version.dll file cannot start. Check the file to determine the problem."
I've checked the M$ KnowledgeBase and found one appropriate article (188213) for the powrprof error message. The cure is to extract a new copy of powrprof.dll - did that - didn't work.
For version.dll error message there is only a single article (137273) which says to extract a new copy of ver.dll (not version.dll) - did that - didn't work.
So I extracted a new copy of version.dll as well - didn't work.
D'ya think that the time really has come to reinstall Win98? Or would upgrading to 98SE be a better option? I'm not going to upgrade to XP (don't think my old PC would be up to it).
PS As PCA was down and out I had to go elsewhere ... so I tried the microsoft newsgroups. Sadly it seems that the MS-MVPs can only answer questions with "see this KB article". I got one rather supercillious reply informing me that I was mixing up ver.dll and version.dll as though they were interchangable and that they are two separate files. I replied that I wasn't mixing anything up, that I knew that they are two different files - I was merely following instructions from M$'s own article - I didn't get any reply to that :-) They all told me to use SFC even though I mentioned several times that it wouldn't run :-(
Are there any MS-MVPs on here?
