Win98SE Error message

you'll most always find as you replace one lost "dll" file you'll have to replace another one its a regular accurance with any windows os. so to save on the long haul of copying files "which, don't get me wrong, does work with patience" it would bebest to place your 98 disk in the cdrom click "Open" Tools/Sysrec/pcrestor, this will take the re-install proccess it will get so far then stop and tell your can not continue with setup with other programes running CTRL+ESC then close all windows that may still be open and there will be just dont close setup.
If the problem is worse so as you cann't do this boot up with cdrom and go throgh the set up process as you may of done the first time round. good fortunes with you either way.

2 things to try:

1) check and see if the version of ddeml.dll is different in c:\windows\system and c:\windows\sysbckup. If so, extract the ddeml.dll file to both directories.

2) if the above doesn't work, extract the user.exe file from the Win98_42.cab file to c:\windows\system or copy the file from another pc to your own.

Enjoy,
