    FILE CAN NOT START

    Locked

    by espo-john ·

    Several PC’s in our Network seem to have the same message “DMIAPI32.DLL” can not start.
    You can bypass the message. Nothing actually happens. Can I copy that DLL from another PC and reload it?

      Yes you can copy the dmiapi32.dll to a floopy disk or cdr cd and then youll drag and drop it into the C:/windows file and overwrite the other dll and then you will be able to run the file

      From this and your other message, it sounds like your users are downloading “nifty” utilities from the internet, which are not properly installing.

      As with your mouse problem, you can eliminate the error message by removing the line referenced to it in system.ini, and most likely in the registry.

      run regedit from the command line, and do a find for that file name. delete all references to it. ( may be more than one, so continue the search after you find one ).

      Then get tough with the users, and find out exactly what they are downloading. Mysterious
      DLL errors just don’t crop up, they occur because of faulty or incomplete installations.

      Hope this helps ya
