Front Page 2000 Beta caused error msgs.

I tried to install the FP 2000 Beta version and it caused some error msgs.  I have "attempted" to uninstall however, any ideas as to what the following indicates: THE PPWEBCAP.exe file is linked to missing export MFC42DLL:6543.  Also, cannot access MS09.dll file AND when I go to System Tools->Drive Converter, I get the same msg...CVT1.exe is linked to missing export file MFC42DLL:6543.  Installation of FP 2000 is the only thing I have done "differently" lately.  Whew...thanks

Try to find/locate the file MFC42.DLL on your harddisk, this file is either in the windows\system or windows\system32 directory, for some obscure reason i have it in both, so i don't know in wich one it belongs.
If it's in neither one of it then you can email me at jeroenb@explainer.nl and i will send it to you.

If it is in one of these directories then it probably isn't registered correctly....
Go to windows\system and type the following command :
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\mfc42.dll

note: if the file was in the windows\system directory then type system instead of system32.

Now, i'm not 100% sure whether this is the sollution, but on first sight it looks like it...please let me know more

Oh, i forgot to add, the command regsvr32 should be typed from the command prompt, if you go to the [start] button, then choose programs then you'll see an option MS-DOS prompt, if you run that you can go to the right directory by typeing :


from there you can execute regsvr32
