What is your o/s and whats the missing dll called?

Have you uninstalled something lately and removed the dll by mistake?

You will find the WINMM.dll here: click here

Download it and put it in your windows System Folder.

I have this file in C:\windows\system. It is 64Kb and version 4.90.0300.

The download site version is 4.03.1998 and 26Kb.

I could e-mail my version of the file to you, if you want. Just send me a message by clicking on the yellow envelope next to my name.

i have tried several times to replace the version of winmm.dll with one that "anchor" sent to me ..but it will not do it.
he suggests doing it via dos....however he does not have xp..i have xp...does anyone know how to do it thru dos on xp???
please help

Have a look at the Webattack missing files page click here it will also probably be worth downloading and running the VB runtime files, this sometimes resolves DLL issues.
