MSDART.DLL Entry Point

By Tea_or_Coffee ·
None of the usual responses to this work for me, so I am hoping for some enlightenment.

Starting Outlook 2003 I get the dialogue headed:

Microsoft Office Outlook: OUTLOOK.EXE - Entry Point Not Found

with the message

"The procedure entry point _GetIUMS@4 could not be located int he dynamic link library MSDART.DLL."

I have to dismiss this dialogue 7 times before I can use Outlook.

I have the latest update to XP SP2; I also have the latest msdart.dll (v2.81.1117). MDAC 2.8 won't install as its fucntions are apparently already covered by my version of Windows.

Grateful for help

log in a user with system admin capabilities. Go to C:\windows\sr.inf. Right click and select Install. It will ask for sr.sys. Get this OFF the CD!!! The one on C: is corrupt. On the CD, under the I386 folder, you will find sr.sy_. Double click it and it SHOULD decompress itself and load.

I take that back... do this.

In the C:\Windows\System32 folder - MSDART.DLL is dated 10-27-2003
In the C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 - MSDART.DLL is dated 08-29-2002

Replace the MSDART.DLL dated 10-27-2003 with the MSDART.DLL dated 08-29-2002.
