I get the message "The ordinal 6905 could not be located in the dynamic link library MFC42.DLL" when I run a proprietary home shopping program. The program has previously worked perfectly prior to problems I had installing NT4.0 SP5. These problems required me to re-install NT4.0 workstation, Outlook98, IE5 and finally NT4.0 SP5 again. I have also re-installed Office97 and Visual Studio.
Basically everything now works except this program. I have tried re-installing the program with no joy.
I would be grateful if someone could explain exactly what the error means and how best to overcome it.
NB Bonus points if anyone can explain the sequence/theory (if any) behind the order of applying service patches (especially where there is 'overlap' such as between NT4.0/Outlook98/IE5/SP5 etc. Thanks.
