My VB App Killed Windows 98
Posted on 2002-06-27
I killed someone's Windows 98 machine with my VB app. Looking for the fix.
I built the VB app on my XP machine. Compiled it into an exe. Used the Visual Studio Package and Deployment wizard to create an installation package.
When I ran the installation on my client's machine (Windows 98), it hosed her Outlook installation, and created problems with Office.
I assume that some of the dependent stuff included in the installation package caused the problem.
The specific error happening in Outlook is:
msvcrt.dll file is linked to missing export ntdll.dll:rtGetNtVersionNumbers
What do I have to do to fix my client's Windows 98 machine?
