Windows95: Error Starting Program

By Cree ·
When starting Windows95 I got the following error message: The COMCTL32.dll file cannot start. Check the file to determine the problem. I have tried: 1. Reinstalling Windows 2. Downloading a COMCTL32.dll file and installing it

I still get the same error message when starting Windows.

Windows95: Error Starting Program

Best solution here is to boot to dos; rename the comctl32.dll file to .old and then reinstall windows on top of the current installation.

Thank you. I already tried that and it didn't work either. Am about to try renaming commctrl.dll to old and extracting it. I understand it sometimes needs to be replaced/refreshed.
