This can happen if you omit to uninstall older builds first.
Can you provide the timestamps of the files


and compare to the timestamps of the other dll files.
(Other outdated dll's are also of interest)

Probably dup of bug 141438

Mozilla was uninstalled first.

Did not find the following DLLs in the Mozilla directory.


Did a find on drive C

Found impComm4x.dll and msgMapi.dll in Netscape 6 directory

impcom4x.dll Created 02 November 2001 Modified 28 November 2001
msgMapi.dll  Created 02 November 2001 Modified 28 November 2001

Can Mozilla and Netscape 6 both be installed on the same PC?
I have not had problems with earlier Mozilla builds coexisting with Netscape 6.

I had a version of this towards the end of the install of build 050308 on a win 
NT machine.
My version was headed in the title bar of the popup box:

OlemainThreadWndName: Mozilla.exe - Entry Point Not Found

Inside the box it said:
The procedure entry point ?Mid@nsAstring@@QBElAAV1Alli@ll@Z could not be locted 
in the dynamic link library xpcom.dll

I'd class this a **serious bug - the browser won't take to links now!
Also it won't close down - the "exit mozilla" option is greyed out in the set of 
choices at the bottom icon bar, and attempting to close down mozilla didn't 
exactly, since there's enough left (I had the quicklaunch option set to yes) to 
prevent it from starting again! Bad.

I'm pretty sure this bug has nothing to do with that...

Reinstalling Mozilla 1.0.0+ under Win2K SP-2 was successful and solved the
reported problems. I could not reproduce my error(s). Thanks for the help.

this bug is due to having installed a third party extension like spellchecker,
calender, etc. The third party extension uses some deprecated modules/functions.

To avoid this bug remove the entire directory and the reinstall
mozilla and then install the newest version of the extentsion.
