nptr95.exe

I have extracted nptr95 in a directory called nwprinter on a win95 workstation running client32. The workstation is a compaq presario pentium 100 with 24 megs ram. It is connected to a netware 3.12 network. I just used the file on a similar computer on a different network on Friday with no hassle at all. On this machine, however when I try to run the file nptwin95, I am receiving the error message that a required file, prtwin32.dll is not found, and the software will not load. prtwin32.dll is not in the list of included files in the nptr95 text file, so I am assuming that it must be a client32 file, but I did a normal install of client32, and it logs in just fine. I cannot go to the other client's network where the install went fine to look for the file. That seems sort of unprofessional. Can anyone help?

Got some info here:

Symptom:

When NPTWIN95.EXE (Nprinter Manager for Windows 95) is run, the following error message is returned:

"A required .DLL file, PRTWIN32.DLL, was not found"
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Solution

The PRTWIN32.DLL is a one of the support DLLs required for the NPTWIN95.EXE application. It is supplied in the current client32 kit.

Along with the PRTWIN32.DLL, a version of CLIENT32.NLM dated 7-01-96 or later is necessary in order to make the Nprinter Manager for Windows 95 function correctly.


Hope this helps, good luck.

What do I need to do to get the file there? Since I just did an install of Client32 and it is obviously not there, where do I get the file? I canot find it by searching Novell's website. Reinstalling the client does not work. AND, IF I find the file, where does it go? In the Novell\Client32 Directory? In the Windows directory? OK, at least I do know that it is a Client32 file. I did suspect that, but solution? I don't really call this a solution. Sorry to be so critical. last time I used this service, it was a big major help, and I guess I just expected the same.

I'm sorry if the info was incomplete, I only tried to help because at the time nobody responded to your question...
The file is part of the client32 v.2.12 named 95enu_n3.exe and downloadable from:

Good luck.
