I'm getting the following error message at start-up;

"Error in C:\windows\system\shellext\target.dll. Missing entry CDPlayNotify"

I'd be grateful if anyone can advise how to fix this.

Thanks in advance.

Target.dll is not part of windows98 but part of the MS PowerToys for
Win95
Perhaps uninstall or reinstall Target? (I suggest uninstall as I found
it did not work well in Win98)
At the same time you might also look at the PowerToy APlayExt as that
is where "CDPlayNotify" comes from. (see Aplayext.inf)
See this MSKB article

Alan,

Thanks for this advice. When you say "..uninstall target.." do you mean
delete target.dll? Powertoys is not showing up as an installed programme, so
I can't 'uninstall'! Finally, just to notify you that the link you
referenced can't be found by IE.

No, when I say "uninstall target" that is what I meant.
According to Target.inf from the Powertoys, it should show in
Add/Remove as "Target Context Menu (Remove Only)"
You need Target.inf to uninstall, so have a look at it with Notepad.

A glitch in the last post. Try this:

Alan,

I uninstalled Target as suggested. It no longer appears in the "add\remove"
list, but I still get the same error message at start-up. Can you offer any
additional advice.

Thanks,

Alan,

I've also uninstalled FlexiCD and TweakUI, message still remains. Is
AutoPlay Extender part of PowerToys and if so should I remove that also?

Chris,

I can only assume you missed something in my last response.
Yes, AutoPlay Extender is part of PowerToys as is clear in the URL I
suggested you read.
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q198/3...

I made no suggestion that you should uninstall TweakUI.
FlexiCD is a bit of a non event anyway, so you won't miss that.

Chris,

I don't know what has gone wrong with your installations.
There is no mention of Target.dll in the install of Autoplay Extender
(Aplayext.inf) as I am sure you are aware. Target.dll only has a
reference in Target.inf
What is the uninstall string for Autoplay Extender in the Registry?
Look in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Chris,

You appear to have a mix up.
You can see that Aplayext.inf does not install that line and I see no
Powertoy .inf file that has such an uninstall string.
(Sorry, I don't have those Powertoys installed and can only go on the
..inf files)
Do your .inf files also conflict with what you see in Regedit?

FWIW, there is unlikely to be anything after the "target.dll" but if
there is it will show in an export (though why you can't see it in
Regedit has me beat)

....Alan

Alan,

I'm not conversant with .inf files at all. Please can you advise how I might
go about this.

Thanks in advance.

Alan,

When I export the Registry entry I see the following;

Uninstallstring "rundll32.exe c:\windows\system\ShellExt\target.dll,
Uninstall C:\\windows\\system\\shellext\\APlayExt.inf"

I can see the APlayExt.inf file in the directory, but there is no target.dll
in the specified directory.

I'm not sure if this answers the question or not!

Chris

Ah! That is interesting!
If I look at AplayExt.inf with Notepad, I don't see that
UninstallString. I see "APlayExt.dll" instead of "target.dll"

You have to read between the lines a little in the .inf file but have
a look at the variable "ThisDll" that appears in the UninstallString
and in the section [Strings]
I suspect it is a matter of modifying the Registry key (after
exporting it for safety) or reinstalling Aplayext.inf if you are
satisfied it is correct.
I would like you to look at Aplayext.inf and confirm that you see the
same. You don't have to fully understand .inf files (I don't) but I
think you may get the idea of what they do.

....Alan

Alan,

I switched the PC on tonight and the error message no longer comes up. Don't
know why this has happened, but many thanks for your help.

Chris
