dll hell !!!!!

You have to point WinXP to the location on the CD.

And BTW, what is the exact error that pops up? Is it "The ordinal xxxx not
found in comctl32.dll"?

And did you try un-registering and then re-registering comctl32.dll?

1) Start > Run > type in: regsvr32 /u comctl32.dll > OK (unregistering)
2) Start > Run > type in: regsvr32 comctl32.dll > OK (registering)

I'm in dll hell. Keep getting error messages, etc.
revolving around comctl32.dl

Have tried booting from cd; have tried re-installing XP;
have tried "recovery"

it's a vicious cycle: it wants a file that's assumedly on
the cd; but when it's not on the hard drive, it refuses to
go to cd to find it

Any suggestions?
