[ALLY] HELP! Error loading View

 [1/2] from: russ:portone at: 29-Oct-2000 16:55

I have installed Rebol/View (many times) on various systems just fine... but recently tried to install it on an old Win95 system of mine and get the following error: The REBOL.EXE file is linked to missing export COMCTL32.DLL:_TrackMouseEvent. I checked and COMCTL32.DLL exists both in /Windows/System directory and the registry. Any suggestions what's wrong on this sytem and how I can get REBOL/View installed there?? Russ PS: It's a 386 machine with only 8MB RAM.. does this matter?

You may have an old version of COMCTL32.DLL Go into your /Windows/System folder and right-click on COMCTL32.DLL , click on Properties, and click the Version tab. Find out what version you have, then figure out where you can get a application that can give you a later version. A good place to start would be Search by File Only, and type in COMCTL32.DLL You might decide to obtain the file by downloading a version of Internet Explorer. You could then either install IE or just extract the DLL from the cabinet file. EXTRACT /Y /L c:\Windows\System c:\Path_to_Cabfile\ COMCTL32.DLL cabinet - Cabinet file (contains two or more files). filename - Name of the file to extract from the cabinet. Wild cards and multiple filenames (separated by blanks) may be used. /L dir Location to place extracted files (default is current directory). /Y Do not prompt before overwriting an existing file. chaz At 04:55 PM 10/29/00 -0500, you wrote:
