Unable to update registry
Posted on 1997-02-25
This was posted in comp.os.ms-windows.win95.setup and I was pointed to this web page. So I thought I'd give it a shot.
I recently tried to install the the Micorsoft Image Composer beta
version 1.0a. When the installation is nearing completion it aborts
stating "server.dll was unable to update the registry". Sure enough,
when I look at the registry it does not have any entries relevant to
Image Composer. When I try and run Image Composer, after the aborted installation, I get the error "cannot find required.dll, msvcrt.dll". To the best of my knowledge none of my computers have this .dll and two out of three run Image Composer properly. All three computers do have files named msvcrt20.dll and msvcrt40.dll. The only thing I have done out of the ordinary is install the expired Image Composer beta and then uninstall it using Quarterdeck Cleansweep (this I did not do on the two computers it is running properly on). Any suggestions would be helpful.
