Kodak Imaging

By megaquark ·
I cannot figure this out for the life of me.
I uninstalled some trialware and now my Kodak imaging does not work. The Imaging preview works, but not the actual "imaging" program.

I went into Add/remove windows components as administrator and there is nothing there for it. Not even a line for accessories. I tried this with the win2k cd also and still no luck. I would be stuck if I had to reload notepad, wordpad, etc. Google is of no help either. Neither is the MS knowledge database. I have no idea how to re-install this without re-loading windows! The exe file is still there, but I get a message that says "Image edit control cannot be found. Please reload imaging". Any ideas?

It is possible during the removal of the trial software it asked about a file that was or could have been shared and prompted you what to do about it. If you said yes to all you have removed important files that are needed for that imaging program. My recommendation is to re-install the program. That should fix all the problems.

That's what I am trying to figure out. How to reinstall it. Sorry I didn't specify. I can't figure out how to reinstall imaging on WIn2k. It is not in the add remove windows components, even when logged in as admin or working from the CD. I can;t find any place to add or remove it.

hmmm. how about an 'in place upgrade' to repair things (you are saying you are sure Kodak Imaging for Windows comes with 2000 and is not on your system because you upgraded from win98se?
anyhow, i have done this in place upgrade thing without harm and with good results so check it out at support.microsoft.com look for article 292175 How To Perform an In-Place Upgrade of Windows 2000

take out any spaces which may have crept in during pasting of hyperlink...

I figured it out. It was a royal pain in the butt. For anyone else who has this problem, follow me here.
First you create a temporary file on the C drive with a second temporary folder within it. Something you will remember.
Next you need to put in your win2k disk and go to the i386 folder and copy a bunch of files including the IMAGEVUE.INF (IMAGEVUE.IN_ because it is compressed) to the temporary folder on the C drive.
Copy all of the files from the i386 folder (not the folders) to the main temporary folder. Only a handfull were necessary, but it went too fast to see what they were.

OPen a command prompt and navigate to the temporary folder. type EXPAND *.* TEMP
where TEMP is the name of the sub folder within the temporary folder you made. (you cannot expand the file onto itself)
Go to the subfolder with the expanded files. Find IMAGEVUE.INF (It may be still called IMAGEVUE.IN_. If so, rename it to IMAGEVUE.INF)
Right click it and select install.
From here, it will install. If a file is missing it will prompt you. You can get it off the win2k disk. I had to go to my WINNT\ServicePackFiles\i386 for a file called OIENG400.dll from the service pack 4 "disk".

This procedure totally re-installs the Kodak Imaging and Imaging Preview. What a royal PITA! The temporary folder can then be deleted.

I noticed that when it asked for the dll file, it asked for either OIENG400.dll OR OIENG400.DL_ , so it may not be necessary to copy/expand all those files. If this is the case you may be able to simply copy and expand the IMAGEVUE.INF file and right click to install. Theoretically this should either copy or prompt you for each individual file straight from the CD. It would probably be easier that way, but I'm not about to attempt it now that I have it working right again!
