I had a Web cam installed but can not now use it because of a missing file, even reinsatalling the web cam software comes up with the error message.
The MSACM32.DLL file is linked to missing export
NTDLL.DLL.Nt.Close. I tried to install a software game but this came up with the same error message after I had installed it and went to play it. I have Windows 98. Se Disk but dont know how to find the missing file from the disk and reinstall it. Any ideas please. Algy Brew
