I installed a Visual C++ 6.0 program on a clients computer and when I try to run it I get the Following error:

The procedure entry point CreateToolhelp32Snapshot could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll

What the heck does that mean?!?
I've installed this software about 10 times before but have never seen this error...

This function is for Windows 9x, ME, 2000, XP and not for NT4. For NT4, use EnumProcesses() and other functions from "Process Status Helper".
