    PSAPI.dll IE7b3 (IE&_b3)

    I D/L and installed IE&_b3, and it "appears" to be pretty stable, except:

    Whenever I try to access any item on the menu(s), I get the attached error.

    MS EI support board told me it was a conflict in the PSAPI.dll, where an older version had gotten installed. That's strange, since the IE7 was the last thing I installed... ANYWAY:

    I did a disk search for the file (as suggested on the MS board), and found several copies, all with different dates/times.

    Now what? If that file is in the system32 folder, will all the other programs find it? And since, the system32 copy is NOT the newest, should I put the newest version in the system32 folder?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    You could rename the one in the System32 folder to PSAPI.old, then copy the most recent version you have into System32 and see what happens.

    Re: PSAPI.dll IE7b3 (IE&_b3)

    Chuck,
    My System32 folder has a psapi.dll dated 8/4/04. There are 6 other appearances ( all Microsoft ) of this dll in other locations varying in age from 2003 to the latest that came with my last ATI update dated 6/7/06, version 4.0.1317.1

    I would think IE7B3 would be using the latest version but Hans had the best suggestion in renaming and trying another version.

    Chuck,
    I also did a Google on "getprocessimagefilenameW" and got a number of hits with the most recent ones mentioning IE7beta.

    If the renaming doen't do it for you, check them out. Some look promising others look like some "no nothing nerd" posted them. Screen out the obvious and try the most promising ones.

    Bob et al:

    MS suggested that I rename ALL copies to psapiold.dll EXCEPT the two in C:WiNDOWSSYSTEMSYSTEM32 and C:WiNDOWSSYSTEMSYSTEM32dllcache, and then see if the programs that "wanted" it would look there...

    That worked. So it seems all is OK now.

    Thanks to all.

    Regards,
    Chuck

    Looking at the title bar of that error message, I wonder whether you have installed the SysTrayX program (http://www.systrayx.com/info.html) from XDESKSOFTWARE (http://www.xdesksoftware.com/index.html). If so, perhaps that company has some insight into the situaation.

    Jefferson:

    I do use SysTrayX... and along with it, WS_FTP, and VirtualDrive. So anyone could have been an issue I suppose. Luckily that was resolved when I renamed them all, leaving them to re-locate to system32...

    Now I'm having some (other) strange issue with Nelson E-mail Organizer, where all the emails in the View Pane end up being bright blue type on a dark gray background, but when opened they are black on white as normal.

    I've written Caelo Software (www.emailorganizer.com) about same, so we'll see... in the meantime I went back to IE6, and all mail again appears normally, so...

    Thanks,
    Chuck
