Sir,

I am using Windows 98 SE. Recently I downloaded a new software named VCD CLIPPER. When I installed this software its readme.txt file instructed to copy some files including msvcrt.dll in the "WINDOWS\SYSTEM" directory. But this file (msvcrt.dll) is already present in the specified directory and when I try to copy this file to the "WINDOWS\SYSTEM" directory the following error message is displayed:

"Access denied, can't replace msvcrt.dll, the file is being used by Windows"

Sir, What can be done to avoid this problem. If you can provide sujjestions to some other softwares like VCD CLIPPER that can easily extract some required parts from a VCD then please provide links to them or if you can specify how to remove this msvcrt.dll then I will be greatly thankful to you.

Amit Mehta.

You can boot into DOS mode by using F8 at bootup.  Then change to the Windows\System directory and rename the MSVCRT.DLL to MSVCRT.AMI (or something like that).  Now copy the other into there.
The reason you are renaming it is in case it causes problems with other programs.

Slink is correct, I name them xxx.old, just a preference. You need not remove it, in case the  new version interferes with other programs or you uninstall the program. Then all you need do is remove the new dll and rename the .old to .dll to resore system to previous state. T

But it answered the question.  Why a C?  If you need more help, ask.  If you need to ask another question, do so.  When you give C grades, you make it so experts will not bother with your questions because it's not worth the trouble.
