  • shell32.dll error

    when I boot up the WinAMP 5.57 on my Windows 2000 system I get this message:

    "the procedure entry point SHOpenFolderAndSelectItems could not be located in the dynamic link library SHELL32.dll"

    When I click "OK", WinAMP operates as normal, but I want to know what's causing this error message to open and how to stop it from appearing. Is there something I can manually remove to stop this from appearing?

    Alas, the SHOpenFolderAndSelectItems function requires WinXP or higher (ie. it's not supported on Win2k).

    Jump To File Ext v1.07 (gen_jumpex.dll) uses it in 5.57, as does the Find File on Disk plugin (gen_ffod.dll) from the EP.

    DrO is aware of the issue and hopes to resolve it shortly.... watch this space...
