    ipc.dll error (Word97 SR-2)

    Esteemed loungers:

    Lately I've been getting a "can't load ipc.dll" error message when I load Word97, or when Winfax10 tries to get a document from it to incorporate into a fax.

    Neither this lounge nor the MSKB seems to have anything helpful. Any ideas?

    Many thanks,

    Herb Silverberg

    The standard troubleshooting procedure can be found in <IMG SRC=http://www.wopr.com/w3timages/starpost.gif> <!post=Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (Word 97/2000),197827>Systematic Approach to Behavioral Problems in Word (Word 97/2000)<!/post>. This might help you isolate whether it is a WinFax problem.

    A Google search for ipc.dll points to issues with lots of different programs. If this is a standard Windows DLL, perhaps you can repair Windows. If it was "updated" by another program, perhaps that created an incompatibility??

    Thanks -

    I'll try the troubleshooting over the weekend. I had already done the Google search as well. Lots of issues, but no indication of the "definitive" or "latest" version or a universal fix. The MSKB doesn't seem to identify any such, either.

    This is just a follow-up to share my experience. Before I tried the exhaustive Word trouble-shooting procedure I decided to sprinkle copies of ipc.dll into every directory and subdirectory remotely related to Word that didn't have a copy in it already.

    I did this wholesale, not trying it one-at-a-time, so I don't know which one actually took, but one of 'em did. No more error message!

    Thanks,

    Herb
