Corrupted dll's when user runs setup program
Posted on 2000-03-13
I used the package & deployment wizard to create a setup program, and when user ran it, he got error messages. Other users have not experienced this problem. What have I done wrong? Below is the email he sent me:
Well, here's your first report of troubles! I downloaded the file a day or
two ago and finally got around to installing it. Didn't go so well, to say
the least. After running the install as per your instructions, I encountered
a couple of error messages, something along the lines of "Your OLEAUT32.DLL
file appears to be corrupted. Reinstall the file and restart the computer".
The other error message said that my OLEPRO32.DLL file appeared to be
corrupted and that I needed to reinstall that file as well.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that, to install those files, I needed
to re-install Windows 98!!!! Only thing I can say about that is you best be
REAL glad that I tried this when Lori was asleep and that I was just
finishing the reinstall when she got up! Oh, she would have been PISSED if
you had broken the computer!
Anyway, there's my first report on the ALPHA test! Hope the others had
better luck than I did!
