Wisepage.dll - Win3.11 etc - Msoffice
Posted on 1997-12-20
I'm looking for a file called Wisepage.dll .
I've come across this file as being missing on 2 different occaisions , with one difference , a scanner.
System A - DOS 6.2x , Windows for workgroups 3.11 , MSOffice 4.3c on a 386DX40 with 8 meg ram. ( NO scanner).
While installing MSOffice Pro 4.3c under wfw3.11 - near the start of the install , the error Wisepage.dll not found pops up.
The install will continue with no apparent problems when running Office.
Looked on the disks after installing - no file called wisepage.dll , and yes I checked the contents of each disk.
This problem has only showed up once on that system and that was about 6 months ago, and has never been seen again on subsequent installs.
System B - DOS 6.2x , Windows for workgroups 3.11 , MSOffice 4.2a on a 486DX4-100 with 32 meg ram with a Flatbed scanner attached.
Have installed MSOffice 4.2 under wfw3.11 and the system has been running without problems. No problems that is until I installed a Flatbed scanner on the system, and this problem only appears in one situation.
The scanner software and other progs that will use the scanner work quite well with no problems.
The only problem that `comes up' is when running Word 6.0c (in the Office pack) . Under File there is a selection - Aquire text .
Clicking on this will attempt to access the scanner , then the error message Wisepage.dll not found pops onto the screen.
Yes, I have checked all the software disks I have for this file - result - Not found.
I have tried to search MS's KB without any success, I even looked for an email address that I could write to them and ask - result - apparently none available !!
Has anyone come across this situation before or more to the point has anyone seen this file on their system ?
Any help would be appreciated.
I don't think it is a scanner software problem as system A above doesn't have a scanner on it. Then again.
