  Recently I installed Windows 95 & updated my MSOffice to Office 97.  Last night when I was trying to do different things (for example insert a graphic) in Word 97 I get this
error:  Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library, MSVCRT40.DLL for WIN32's  ERROR:  This version of MSVCRT40.DLL is only intended for WIN32'S.  Does anyone know what this means & how I can fix the problem?

   Thanks in advance for your help.

bfine,

You have an old version of MSVCRT40.DLL on your computer. Go to this address to get the latest version of this DLL: http://ftpsearch.ntnu.no/cgi-bin/search?query=MSVCRT40.DLL.
(take the one which is 319KB).

Then, rename your current MSVCRT40.DLL to MSVRCT40.OLD and put the new one in the Windows/System directory.

Hope this help,

Steve.
