    Dial-Up Network (Windows 98)

    So, I have unistalled, reinstalled my Network files and also reinstalled Windows '98 and am still unable to connect with my ISP. I continue to get the following message: Error 745: An essential file is missing!

    Any suggestions, please!

    Reinstalling should have fixed this, but MS has specific instructions for replacing a damaged RASAPI32.DLL file in this article: <A target="_blank" HREF=;EN-GB;q174579>Error Message: Error 745: An Essential File Is Missing (Q174579)</A>. Hope this finally does it!
