a couple of questions...

-A program is still listed under the add/remove program list even though I deleted the program file folder. I tried to click on the change/remove button for the program but nothing happens. Anything I can do to get rid of it from the list?

-I ran NSU2003 and I have a problem with this program "dotnetinstaller". Apparently its missing a coree.dll file or something. It is under the folder program files\common files\installshield\professional\runtime\intel32
I have no idea what the problem is and how to fix it.

I have so many WINXP problems lately that its hilarious =\

  1. First off, removing folders in Program Files is not the preferred way to get rid of a program. Which you may have just noticed. :smile:

    I suspect the file you are missing is called <A HREF="http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?mscoree" target="_new">mscoree.dll</A>.

    Check this post on the subject:

    <A HREF="http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/win98/r1048435999" target="_new">re: Dotnetinstaller.exe</A>

    A quote from this <A HREF="http://vietunicode.sourceforge.net/download/unicodeconverter/readme_cs.html" target="_new">page</A>:

    If you attempt to run a .NET application from a computer on which the .NET runtime is not installed, you will receive the error "A required .DLL file, MSCOREE.DLL, was not found" or "The dynamic link library mscoree.dll could not be found in the specified path..." To solve this problem, install the .NET Framework on the computer and try running the application again.

    The "fix" apparently, is to download the file, extract it into the Windows\System folder,and then run Norton to see if the error has been corrected. Me, I'd put a copy in any area where Norton wants it to be.

    Note: Watch out when downloading hotfixes from Windows Update ... you don't need everything ... such as the <A HREF="http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/" target="_new">.Net framework</A>.

  2. Well the program I installed did not have an uninstall icon therefore I was forced to uninstall it by deleting the program folder. =\

    Cool! got the coree.dll problem fixed. Just had to dl it and put it in system folder. ^^

    What is this forum gonna do without you Toey? Thanks a bunch =D
  3. Delete its entry in Registry Settings (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVresion\Uninstall)

    :smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
  4. thanks khha, i did the same thing u suggested and it got rid of it from the list. ^^
