Win 98 Startup Error Message .dll

By okippiko ·
During Startup I get this error message -
A required .dll file, c:\windows\system\crtdll.dll was not found. This message displays in a dialog box on the desktop. After trying to open MS Word from the start screen I then get this error message - Windows cannot find winword.exe. This program is needed for opening file of type 'cnv file.' Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

You can grab a copy of crtdll.dll here:
http://www.windrivers.com/dll/index.htm

If you have winword.exe on your computer, try locating it with START/FIND, perhaps Windows is looking in the wrong directory for it.

The system .dll files have become corrupt and need to be reinstalled,one way to clear the problem is use web site www.windrivers.com and locate the dll file
winword.exe may have to be reloaded from the Win98 disk to insure of being recopied
Run anti-virus to make sure that you donot have a virus.now run scandisk

The file is found on the 95' and 98' CD.
If you have Win95' do the following:
1)Put the 95' CD in the CD drive.
2)Click on start\programs\msdos prompt.
3)Type extract /a <CD drive letter>win95\win95_02.cab crtdll.dll /L c:\windows\system.
4)Press Enter. Yhis will copy the file or overwrite the corrupted file.
5)Type exit, enter, and restart the system.

If you have 98' do the following:
1)Click on start\run and type sfc in the open box, then click ok.
2)Put the 98' CD in the CD drive.
3)Choose to extract file.
4)Type the file name in the box and click start.
5)Restore from-<CD drive letter>win98 and save file in-c:\windows\system.
6)Once the file has been extracted restart the system.

Good Luck!
