when trying to check if universal plug an play is activated(this woiuld be a security hole!)i must enter windows-setup.
in one of my two winme-pentium 1-machines there is an error:
run32.dll caused an error in setupx.dll

how can i solve this? on both machines(running cable-modem) there is no security problem and norton system works shows no problems. also firewalls are on.

maybe setupx.dll is corrupt. find it, rename it, and replace it, directions below from various mskb articles.
mskb article ------
In the Search for files or folders named box, type setupx.dll, click Local Hard Drives in the Look in box, and then press ENTER.
Right-click the Setupx.dll file, click Rename, type setupx.old, and then press ENTER.
Extract a new copy of the Setupx.dll file to your computer.
mskb article ------
You can extract files directly to the destination folder when you start your computer with the Startup disk.

The default source folder for Microsoft Windows installation files is the C:\Windows\Options\Install folder.

If you need to make a Startup disk to run Extract, use the following steps:
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs.
On the Startup Disk tab, click Create Disk.
--------
The general form of the extract command is:
extract source path\ file /L c:\windows\command

For example, if the source path is C:\Cabs, the extract command is
a:\extract drive:\cabs\file /L drive:\windows\path

where drive is the drive on which Windows is installed (typically drive C), path is the destination folder for the extracted file, and file is the file you want to extract.

Type the following command at the command prompt, making the appropriate substitutions as previously noted, and then press ENTER:
a:\extract source path\ file /L c:\windows\command

winme is very stable when using together with norton system works. i have several hdds on two p1mmx.

i am not sure if i have already used sfc obn behalf of this problem. i only know when i used it(maybe on an other subject) i didn work. could you send me this file anyhow? europanorama@gmx.net

If all you want to do is check/deactivate universal plug and play, run a Google search for "Unplug and Pray". It's a free utility for exactly that purpose.

when opening windows setup/in software one can check if universal plug and play is activated. i cannot enter because... see above. check also http://www.wrc.com then you will understand why up&p(some say uiversal plug and pray) is a very dangerous tool above all in winxp. convince your self. if one has no deep knowledge about any windows one cannot judge it. winme is stable togehter with norton system works. it sis running in two p1-mmx(on 3 hdds and one athlon xp 1800. if using internet you nee adaware and spybot, plus norton firewall. thats all. run the programs regularly and do not buy used power-supply-unit. i am not yet an expert. but i have now a new 300w with two fans. i will test this on different boards pentiumII/III where i had huge troubles with power. i will start a new thread.
