    Can't install TweakUI for XP

    When I try to install TweakUI for XP, which I have done so before, I get the following error message;

    "procedure entry poiny GetDllDirectoryW could not be located in the dynamic link library kernal32.dll"


    What does this mean and how do I fix it?

    Thanks
    Halder

    u probably got a missing file so i should tell you to restart ur pc then uninstall TweakUI then redownload it after just reinstall it if u keep having problems try taking off ur firewall.

    I found the problem out. I had to reinstall XP recently and the version of TWEAKUI for XP that I have will not install on any XP that does not have SP1 installed first, which I have not installed yet. There you go. Solved.

    Thanks

    That means the version of the dll is the wrong version as it does not contain the required procedure entry point 'GetDirectoryW'. As you have now found out the SP1 kernel32.dll does contain it.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
