I normally do not run windows, and run linux instead. However I've been
running WinXPPro (SP3) on a second machine to assist someone
troubleshooting a SeaMonkey issue. I've run into an issue with
from SM 1.1.14 to 1.1.15 and now 1.1.16 whereby I receive WinXP startup
errors due to SM replacing the MAPI32.DLL in the Windows System32
directory upon each upgrade. To add insult to injury... 1.1.15 & 1.1.16
If I leave the SM mapi32.dll installed, I received the following error
Try deleting the registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Desktop\Mapi_backup_dll (if it
exists, that is :).
No key; I even did a registry search.
Then it should no longer replace the file. I'm not
sure why the registry entry might be there, just check if it is and
report back? Normally it should only exist when a very old IE version
(<5.5 as far as I know) was once installed, which can normally not be
the case on Windows XP.
I should note that I have both 1.1.16 and 2.0a3 installed on that box.
Probably the easiest would be for one of the WinXP users here to install
I reinstalled and as soon as I did, the error popped up - didn't even
have to reboot.
Actually it would be better for you to uninstall WS. I don't allow that
search crap on any workstations I manage. Nothing but a performance hit.
I installed winSearch 4 and hated it, so I went back to
the old version -- without that crappy dog, though
