I am having a problem with some of our computers. It may be related so please read the following question in conjunction with this.


When attempting to do a 'gpresult' query I get the error message:

"gpresult.exe - Unable To Locate Component

The application has failed to start because framedyn.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I have googled it and found similar problems but not with gpresult.

I have copied framedyn.dll from other computers that are working and even copied it off of the i386 folder on my Windows XP CD and I still get the problem.

Client OS: Windows XP SP2 (all latest updates except IE7)
Sever OS: Windows Server 2003 R1 (all updates except IE7)
