    Where is wwintl32.dll loaded as Word starts?

    OK, I had a messed up computer from Gateway. It is now several years old and I am surprised I did not have problems until now. When I first got it, it came with MS Office97 SBE installed. For some bizarre reason it was installed twice -- in C:/MSOffice *and* in D:/Program Files/Microsoft Office. I have NO idea why, but it worked, so I never changed it.

    I have gone through every upgrade and patch -- Outlook98, SR1, SR2a, etc. and I have had very little problem -- until the most recent patch (RTF Template Macro). NOW the two versions of Office are in conflict and it was not possible for me to update. The patch thought I was at SR1 level, yet all my programs say SR2 in the Help|About box.

    I verified that the Program Files version was the most recent, and then I compulsively moved ALL of the other files into the corresponding and matching folders -- being very careful to save the most recent version of each file.

    I then went through the registry and found EVERY entry for the MSOffice directory and I correctly altered them. I also checked Win.ini and System.ini.

    Excel and Outlook98 work find. However, when I open Word I get this warning:

    /! Error. The wrong wwintl32.dll has been loaded. Make sure that the Word directory is in the path.

    WHERE is this being loaded from? I cannot find a reference to it in the registry. The file is presently in C:/Program Files/Microsoft Office/Office -- like MANY of my Word files are. How do I make sure the Word directory is in the path?? Thanks.

    What do I need to SAVE to keep my Toolbars and customizations?

    Came across an archive with the following. Not sure if it'll be of any help though:

    WWINTL32.DLL should be located in the same directory as WINWORD.EXE; for Word 97, this might be
    "Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice".
