    Please help.
    I just opened TDS3 and after doing a thorough scan I got this message at the end.

    12:33:55 [CRC32] File doesn't exist: C:\WINDOWS\System32\regsvr32.exe

    I remember having this message once before (many reformats ago). Can't remember what it was about. Did a search but could not find info here.
    Do you know what it is, how it could be missing and how I can restore it?
    I am getting so frustrated trying to learn:(.
    THANKS.
    Tired (tracy)

    Is the file on your system when you search for it in windows?
    If so, it is just a pathname you should edit in the CRCscan txt file in the TDS directory.
    If the file is really missing, you can try to restore it from the windows install cd-rom.

    Hi Tired, The file may not be where TDS default thinks it is, This may depend what your windows version is.

    You can stop the annoyance by editing your CRC file with notepad.

    TDS menu - Edit config text files - This will open a window - double click the crcfiles.txt, which will open the file in notepad. Find the the line containing regsvr32.exe entry and delete it. Save the file and close the window.


    Reload TDS to make sure all is well. :)

    Hi Tracy,

    To add a little more to the good advices from Jooske and Pilli:

    If you would like to read a bit more about the CRC32-test in TDS-3, see this thread:
    http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=13740

    The line in the file crcfiles.txt for regsvr32.exe is:
    %WINSYSDIR%\regsvr32.exe

    I saw that you run W XP Pro.
    I have to admit that I don't know whether regsvr32.exe exists on XP (Pro) :oops:
    I hope others can tell you that.

    Now for the main question, in windows using search/find, did you locate the file somewhere? Either in Windows or windows\system?
    I bet you have it somewhere.
    Description: Application that is used to register dynamic-link libraries and ActiveX controls in the registry.
    Company: Microsoft Corp.
    System Process: Yes
    In the rare case you lost it and can't find it back on your install CD-ROM you can get it back here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/Q267/2/79.asp&NoWebContent=1

    And tell us what you found or did not find or which changes you made to the CRC file, etc, just keep us updated to be able to support you better. Thank you.

    Hi, Jooske

    Search.

    C:\ WINDOWS\System32 application 10KB 23/8/01 12.00


    Can not find it on my cd. I think this is because it become a system file [Name Change] on install. I did a search on ms for regsvr32.exe and there are some results, But I do not Know which one Tracy needs. so I will not leave a link. It is something to do with a host file I think.

    Sorry. :rolleyes:

    Depending on your windows version, like in win98 it is in system, not system32; but first of all Tracy has to do a search if the file is really missing, which i don't believe.

    win98 can use the start > run > SFC > put back a file, type the name, insert CD > do as asked, file will be put back default.

    Either: go to the link i just posted above and get it from the Microsoft page.

    Without Tracy giving us any feedback on the current situation it's no use to produce any possible unnecessary solutions which might confuse the situation even more.

    Yep, first check whether that file regsvr32.exe exists on your system and where.



    Please also check whether you have the following sub-directory in your TDS-3 directory:
    xDynamic\TDS.data
    If you don't have that sub-dir, simply make it yourself.

    Hi,

    Sorry If I caused any confusion, I read your post Jooske but did not go to the link to MS Support you left.

    Without Tracy giving us any feedback on the current situation it's no use to produce any possible unnecessary solutions which might confuse the situation even more.

    I was only trying to help.
