Stale poiinter to DLL file - Where is it?
Posted on 2008-10-07
I installed an upgrade for a program called PCLaw on a client machine. PCLaw includes a component called "Outlook Connection Manager" that allows it to interface with Outlook (PST or Exchange). When I fire up Outlook, I get the following error:
The add-in "C:\PROGRA~1\ACG\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll" could not be installed or loaded. This problem may be resolved by using Detect and Repair on the Help menu.
No luck with Detect and Repair. Here's my question: The pointer referenced in the error message, "C:\PROGRA~1\ACG\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll" is stale. ploutplg.dll exists, but it's now located in "C:\PROGRA~1\LexisNexis\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll". I can't figure out where the pointer lives. I searched the registry, and the only pointer I found was to "C:\PROGRA~1\LexisNexis\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll". I also searched "C:\Program Files" for a file containing the following string: "ACG\PCLAW32\ploutplg.dll" No luck. Where doe this pointer live?
