What application is CSPMON16.DLL from?  An error comes up that it was unable to load.  I found CSPMON32.DLL in the \Windows\system directory, and I found WSPMON.DLL and WSPMON16.DLL in the WIN95_10.CAB, but where is CSPMON16.DLL??

When is this error occuring?

For fun:  try copying CSPMON32.DLL to CSPMON16.DLL
and see if that gets you by.

I did a OSR2 install yesterday and was missing two files and can't find them in CABs either 8(

The error occurs when the user (it's not my system) tries to print.  It says it can't load the print monitor, and then names the dll file in queston.  If I remember correctly, the error only comes up the first time he tries to print after startup.

I'll try that copy trick and let ya know what happened...

BTW - just so I know...what's OSR2?

OSR2 is the second coming of WIn95 that came out a year
after Win95's initial release, BUT is only available with new
PC's and not sold as a stand alone upgrade or otherwise.

The sad thing is...  It's a lot better than the initial release...
MS should be ashamed for not letting everyone get in on it.
And poorer too I bet.

If my answer works for you I can just put in a message as an answer and get credit right?

Just started here....  Don't know if  the people asking the question can, because I haven't myself asked any questions.

[just made this an answer instead at last minute, if that didn't fix it
please just reject ;)]

By the way, what printer?   Perhaps that .DLL is part of the drivers disk for that printer...?

It didn't work.  The exact error is:

Failed to load Print Monitor CSPMON16.

it doesn't actually say anything about it being a dll, i kinda just assumed it since I found CSPMON32.DLL...

I'll check the printer drivers next...

Hmmm maybe it is just a missing .EXE file.

It only does it once, then next print attempt it works right?

Win95 is remembering that file is missing and doesn't nag you and can work anyho...

Sounds  like it just can't load a util to inform the user about
the print job...

What printer is it?  Yeah check that drivers disk...
I will look for that CSPMON16 on my PC just for the fun of it...

Turned up no CSPMON anything...

So that supports my driver/printer util attached to the driver
theory...

The error message doesn't really affect anything...even the first print job that spawns the error prints successfully...but the guys a VP, so I gotta keep everything lookin' smooth...

I tried just removing and re-installing the printer (HP laserjet 4MV), but I think Win95 just used the sme drivers it had loaded already...I'll look into the driver disks themselves on Monday, I'm outee...
