W32skrnl and Winexec failed error

I run windows 95 and WindowsNT on my pc (Dual boot) and I am trying to install Sharp day-timer Organizer on my pc but I can't  because I get " A required .dll file w32skrnl.dll was not found" and " Winexec failed : cmd=dtinst32 Dtsetup /s A:\ ;error=8" message.  I have spoken to the Day Timer Organizer help desk and they said that .dll file not required for the setup and says that it is the problem with my Windows.  Can some one please help me?
Thanks,
Dan

That file is normally located in the C:\Windows\System\Win32s directory.

This part of the Win32
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q115/0/85

It is normally installed with Encarta 97 or Visual Foxpro.

If you have installed one of these programs, you may want to reinstall them on your system.

Just do a web search or the file, you should find it.  That particular file is a part of the Win32s package - the 32bit drivers for Windows 3.x enabling it to run 32 bit software, it shouldn't be needed for any Windows95 software.  You need to install this package if that file doesn't help (of course I would suggest you get a newer version of your software first, installing the 32 bit extensions for Win3.X on a 95 machine is kind of redundant and will take up RAM for no reason.

If you need the files check here:

Heh, well bad news.  Chances are you upgraded from Win3.x and you had the 32 bit extensions installed.  The only way to uninstall them is to reinstall everything from scratch (do a full format/reinstall).
