I built dialog programs with VC++ 6.0 in Windows 98. When they get run on Windows 2000 I get the error message "Entry point SMapLS not found in Kernel32.dll". The document based programs I've written in Win 98 work fine in 2000.

I definitely don't see a SMapLS in the kernel32.dll in my NT 4.0 machine.
I know of situations involving JVM or multimedia where similar error messages used to appear.
I have seen SMapLS being used for thunking.
I am not sure of this problem.
So I am listening too ......

On Windows, InstallAnywhere sometimes displays error:
SMapLS could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL.dll  This is caused by Microsoft's version of Java in C:\WINNT\System32. The solution is to put another version of Java on your system PATH before Microsoft's. Go into System Properties and prepend a path like C:\jdk1.3\bin to the PATH system variable and restart your browser.

I came across the above fix in Enhydra 4.0 release notes.  By the way, Enhydra is an open source java app server.

If you have any multimedia stuff in your program, then try getting a new version of WinMM.dll from the web and replace it in your system32 folder.
