"The procedure entry point strcat_s could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll"
Posted on 2010-06-07
After an automatic update of an "out of date file" detected by "Package and Deployment Wizard" of Access 2000, I got the noted message on restart. The computer ( Acer Notebook running Windows XP) did not restart correctly.
It loads until the request for logon and pasword, then the message appears. I get the desktop image but without any shortcut, and it freezes.
As the computer has no disk drive, I built a bootable USB key for Windows XP with Bart PePuilder, and I succeed to replace msvcrt.dll in C:/Windows/System32 by the one copied from another XP computer.
But this did not solved the problem.
The only information I got on Internet in another forum about this problem was from another guy who has the same problem then I. And he had not received any answer.
Can you help me to restore the right content of the dll file. Or maybe the problem is elsewhere?
Than you for your attention.
