Extract single file from XP CD


G

Guest

Hello...

I am trying to extract a copy of OLEAUT32.DLL from my original XP CD in
order to fix a problem I'm having opening windows in IE via the
right-click--"open in new window" contextual menu choice. If I were working
in DOS or 95/98 I could just type "extract d:\i386\oleaut32.dl_
c:\windows\system32\oleaut32.dll".

Nowadays, of course, things aren't so simple. I found an article talking
about using MSCONFIG to extract a single file from the XP CD, but it seems
that MSCONFIG will only extract from CAB files, and the file I'm after is not
in a CAB file (or at least not that I know of) -- it's compressed as a .dl_
file in the D:\i386 folder.

Can anyone tell me how I can extract a copy of this file? Thanks for your
help.

The command is expand (not extract) and is still present in Windows XP.

Hope this helps

Damn it, Oli, why have you got to go and make me feel all old and decrepit?
I can't even remember my DOS commands anymore. But you're absolutely right,
and it worked like a charm.

Thanks for jarring my head. :p

===========================================================
(This posting may get chopped up - watch for any wrapped lines)
I have Windows XP Pro version 2002 SP2
(Service Pack 2 was installed later)

So I have -

C:\windows\system32:
Name Size Type Date Modified
ole32.dll 1,252KB Application Extension 8/4/2004 12:56
oleaut32.dll 541KB Application Extension 8/4/2004 12:56


Because I have installed SP2 I also have this -

C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386:
Name Size Type Date Modified
ole32.dll 1,252KB Application Extension 8/4/2004 12:56
oleaut32.dll 541KB Application Extension 8/4/2004 12:56


I suggest you try this first:

START > RUN > cmd
(Command Prompt window opens)

Type in these commands (Press enter after each command)

cd c:\windows\system32
regsvr32 ole32.dll (click OK when succeeded)
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll (click OK when succeeded)
exit

Restart computer

See if your issue is resolved -

If I thought I needed a new copy of either of those files
I would do this:

START > RUN > cmd
(Command Prompt window opens)

Type in these commands (Press enter after each command)

cd c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386
copy oleaut32.dll c:\windows\system32
(Tap Y for yes to overwite and press Enter)
cd c:\windows\system32
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll (click OK when succeeded)
exit

How to "extract" a file from the XP CD -

!! I WOULD NOT ACTUALLY WANT TO DO THIS ANYMORE !!
(Original XP Pro CD - version 2002 - NO SERVICE PACKS)
I would only do this if I was CERTAIN that the
file in question had not been modified by installing
one of the Service Packs!!!!

!! Just an example then !! -

START > RUN > cmd
(Command Prompt window opens)

Type in these commands (Press enter after each command)
x: (Where "x" is the CDROM drive letter)
cd i386
expand oleaut32.dl_ c:\windows\system32
(should see a prompt that shows the file expanding)
(underscore at end of file name = compressed file)
You can also run a copy command like so -
copy oleaut32.dl_ c:\windows\system32\oleaut32.dll


Hope this helps

Hello all...

I'm having problem with C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\atapi.sys

actually my system got affected with Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Boaxxe.bi..

Seems this trojan can never be eliminated
.. It drops Trojans now and then, only which my Zone Alarm Extreme Secxurity keeps deleting frequently,but no permanent solution

Even Trojan Remover does not detect it..

I have found that the atapi.sys is infected(by booting & scanning from the 2nd OS(win 7)).. & hence the safe mode of the current OS is disabled(keeps restarting or a blue screen error)..

My current OS is Windows sp3.. I have the CD rom

Can somone help me to replace the atapi.sys from the original CD to the system32 folder..


Please Help..
