I'm trying to get a couple of Windows XP applications running on my Windows 2000 box.
Found this site here http://win2kgaming.site90.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7
Downloaded the Wrapper Pack 1.8 and have been trying to get it to work.
The README (viewable on the link above) includes these paragraphs
In some cases (kernel32.dll, shell32, & user32.dll) the DLL search path must be
modified due to 'KnownDLLs' These KnownDLLs are only loaded from the system32,
but this functionality can be disabled by Regedt32. (*IMPORTANT regedit.exe
won't work*) Simply add the DLLs to exclude from 'KnownDLLs' to
this is a multiline value, so place a dll on each line.
Included in this pack should be a ExcludeFromKnownDlls.reg which will set this
to kernel32, shell32, advapi32 & user32. A reboot is needed for this to take
effect. To see a list of KnownDLLs see
So I've been trying to get the included registry file mentioned above to work.
regedt32 when applied to it on the command line doesn't do anything. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
