I am having trouble with a SQL 2000 installation. It fails with the error "procedure entry point" and "msvcrt.dll". Based on previousl reading here I'm guessing that a 3rd party app has changed that file.
My big problem is that the machine (Windows Server 2000) is 500 miles away and that I interact with it remotely via logmein.com. I can see a copy of the file in the C:\i386 folder. Could I use this file? If so, I can do a "safe-mode" reboot in logmein.com. I wonder could I replace the dll in that mode?
Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I really need to get SQL Server installed without taking on a 500 mile journey. Many thanks in advance.
