I am using Win98 S.E, with Office Pro installed.
On starting the computer I receive a message: 'The launchpd.exefile is linked to missing export MFC42.Dll:6442.
I have searched M/S downloads but was unable to locate the missing file.
Can anyone help,please?

You guys out there have all pointed in the same ( correct ) direction, and the problem relating to the dll seems to have solved the 'launchpd' error also!
Many thanks,

HI, guys!
It is happening again! Those little error boxes stating MCF42.DLL:6442 and LAUNCHPD.EXE linked to missing export file.
I have downloaded MFC42.DLL and it resides on my desktop. I have use Winzip to install it........somewhere? Where was, or should its final destination be?
Sorry to bring it up again but it is a nuisance!

You could also copy it to the folder where the errant program lives - can't do any harm.

Try Windows, Windows/System and if you have one Windows/System32 directories.

You could try uninstalling your ATI software from ADD/REMOVE Programs, then re-install the software from the graphics driver CD, it should refresh the dll's and exe's that have problems attached.
