I am trying to troubleshoot my networking on win98 SE. It asked me to put the win98 SE Cd in the computer. But it says it can't find a file called secur32.dll. I searched for that file on the CD independtly and I can't find it either. How could win98 ask for a file that does not exist on its own CD?

Hi polaatx,

It's included in one of the CAB files... with this file, I don't know in which it is.
What you might want to do is check if the file allready exists on your harddisk (just use the search function)
and point the installation to that location.

Greetings,

LucF

Thanks LucF, I'll check the hard disk. But do you know why when I search the CD nothing shows up? Are things in cab files invisible to search?

Nope, they're archives and just searching through the archive files doesn't point you to the right files.

I used to know a list on which archive holds which files, I'll try to find it for you in case you can't find the file on your harddisk allready.
