How to reinstall calc.exe file

Somehow, (No idea how) I have erased the calc.exe file.  Where can I find another one, and how do I reinstall it.  I tried the Microsoft website, but the download they gave me was a pretty old version (I think).  Any help is appreciated.  I miss my calculator.

just copy calc.exe  from another machine to folder c:\WINDOWS\system32 .
and calc.chm to c:\windows\help folder on your machine.

Another way:

 insert your windowsxp cd rom in the drive and type following command from the command prompt
Change D: to your CD Drive letter

expand -r D:\I386\calc.ex_ c:\windows\system32

expand -r D:\I386\calc.ch_ c:\windows\help


and create a shortcut where u want to put it.
expand -r D:\I386\calc.ex_ c:\windows\system32
 
expand -r D:\I386\calc.ch_ c:\windows\help

Open in new window

Have you got a Windows CD or can you borrow one? If so then place the disk in the driver, Open control panel, Go to your add/remove programs, add remove windows components, accessories and utilities

Double click to see the details then tick calculator and OK as required - Windows will then re-install it.

Hey guys,  My computer is asking for the Windows XP professional Service Pack 2, I only have access to the Windows XP Service Pack 2.  The computer won't go any further, so I guess there is a difference between the 2 programs.  Is there another way to get the program without the disc?
