After installing Money97 on two NT4 pcs I now cannot start Internet Explorer.
Error message is "Unable to locate DLL, SHLWAPI.dll could not be found in the specified path......."
I also get this message when starting other Office97 applications.
I cannot find this dll file anywhere, even on other NT4 pcs.

Any ideas?

It must be in the \winnt\system32 folder. I have it there.
I think it comes from the office CD. Locate it there.

If you still don't find it, leave me a note.

I just found that it is at least with the Internet Explorer 3:

I do not know what it is for and why it interferes with MS-Money.

shlwapi.dll file is used by Internet Explorer for many things such as the LoadWC which is Web Checker Program started up in the Registry(Machine Key).  Eudora, Office, Outlook are a few programs that use this library.  You can't just copy the file over in NT you have to rename the existing and then invoke a program to copy the file over to the Winnt\system32 directory.  This works some times, the rest only option I have found is RE-Install all programs.
 
Hope this might help
