Outdated Oleaut32.DLL file

By muchach1 ·
Hi Gang, for no reason all of a sudden I started to get an error message stating;
Microsoft Excel requires file oleaut32.DLL to run. The version of Oleaut32.DLL that is on your computer is older than the one required by this version of microsoft excel. Please run setup again,and select the Reinstall option to install the correct version of the file.

How did this happen? Can I download a new version of this file from internet web sites and how do I insatll it properly?

Dear fellow

Just do a search for the file in the internet, and download it into a temp folder

then do a search for the file in your system, when you have found it, write down the path,
then rename it to sometime like oleaut32.old, that way you can if the fix fails at least you can go back.

copy the file you downloaded from the internet to the place where the original file was, and then restart your computer.

that should be the end of the problem.
