I moderated up a lot of news item today after two days of inactivity due to personal priorities. :) I also finally noticed that the "Add News" preview page must have been broken for quite some time, and fixed it. Finally, those of you who are wondering why they're not getting any Notification mails: I've been neglecting this feature for quite some time, and right now, I cannot access my Eudora mail folders (Can anyone suggest how to update msvcrt.dll in Windows 2000?) and as such cannot update the address list. While the notifications are on hold right now, they are scheduled to return sometime.

The only way to update system dll's in Windows 2000 is via Service Paks that you can download from Microsofts website.

Too bad, then. Some dodgy setup managed to overwrite that dll with an older version (ie. older than the one in the original Win2k distribution). Re-installing SP1 didn't help. Guess I'm out of luck, then.

Well - What can you expect from a Microsoft product other than
problems - problems - problems ?

Thanks especially for the Luca interviews.
I do so hate speculating in a vacuum... ;-)

Here's what you do: find someone with a working Windows2000 setup and get a floppy disk.
On the working system: On boot-up when it asks you to press F8 if you want boot options, hit F8. On the menu, choose the command prompt option. Locate the .dll you want and copy it to the floppy.
On the dead system: same thing - go to the boot menu and into the command prompt. Copy the .dll from the disk to the location it is supposed to go. Reboot et voila, it'll work.
I found this nice little tidbit lately when some beta software trashed some system files including this one. A nice file-copy then uninstall of the offending item and an install of the non-beta version fixed it.

I could have sworn I didn't have a command line boot option on Windows 2000. I did install the recovery console though, but didn't get around to trying via that one yet. Or rather I tried once, and for some odd reason couldn't access the correct file on another partition for a "access denied" reasons I didn't uite understand either. I guess I'll have to try again, with both files in one directory, and directly renaming things there.

There are some DLL downloads available from here (like a search engine)

In fact, for reasons which is better to leave in the shadows, the
recovery console can ONLY copy files FROM *REMOVABLE DEVICES* TO *the
WINDOWS DIRECTORY* and nothing else, so you need to build a floppy
with the files you need, and copy from them.
Another way you could do that (this is the WinNT4 way) is to install a
new (temporary) copy of Windows in another directory (say
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\Recovery) , boot from the new
copy, perform whatever change you need to the old copy, reboot to the
old copy and if everything is ok, simply throw away the temporary
installation along with its line in the boot.ini
