gapi32.dll missing


C

Cat

I get the following message when I run Norton:

"C:\WINNT\System32\MAPISRVR.EXE" cannot access a necessary
file, "gapi32.dll."

Where can I get this file and is there anything tricky
about replacing it to the proper file once I get it?

OR

Are there any suggestions as to where else I can ask?

Thanks

Copy the file over or ignore the error:

I take it Norton Win Doctor is telling you of this "error"?

There actually isn't an error, except for Norton Win Doctor telling you
there is one.

This has been a known issue with Norton Win Doctor since System Works 2002.

Norton's website recommends in order to "fix" this error so that Win Doctor
doesn't keep falsely reporting it, you can either choose to enable 'ignore'
from Win Doctor or you can search for and copy GAPI32.DLL into the directory
that contains MAPISRVR.EXE.

In WinXP, MAPISRVR.EXE is in C:\Windows\System32

Both are awkward kludge "fixes", in my opinion.

The problem with simply copying it into a system directory is that should
GAPI32.DLL ever be updated in the future through Microsoft Updates, then the
old version will continue to be executed since it is in system path
directory.

A better alternative would be to add the directory containing GAPI32.DLL to
your system path.

In WinXP, the path is either:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\
or
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\NT

By adding the path, it will ensure that you won't run into any problems in
the future should GAPI32.DLL be updated through a service pack.
