    Hello,

    I am having trouble with my computer at work. I am using Windows ME. Whenever I start up my computer, I get an error message that says "a required .DLL file, MS09.DLL was not found".

    Also, when I am in Outlook Express 5.5 if I try to open a message or send a message I get a message that says "msimn has caused an error in WAB32.DLL msimn will now close".

    Can someone please tell me what these error messages mean and how I may fix the problem?

    Thanks for your help all,

    Kittygirl :rolleyes: purrrrrrrrrrrr

    Did you have hotmail coming to Outlook express & have done away with it or the MSN messenger?

    Hi,

    For your missing MS09.DLL file, try repairing Office. This will restore the file. You'll need your Office CD-ROM:

    Double-click Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

    Double-click the Office 2000 entry listed in the Add/Remove Programs dialog box.

    Click Repair Office.
    Click Repair errors in my Office installation, and then click Finish.

    If necessary, select the Restore my shortcuts check box.


    As for your Msimn error, follow the directions in DJ's Microsoft link.
    That ought to solve your problem.

    Good luck,

    Kittygirl,

    I have been following this thread with interest as I have had the same mso9.dll error for months - and the good news is that I have just cracked it!

    Try this.

    Go to www.easy-files.com/cgi-bin/sharin.pl and search for mso9. This will give you a downloadable file of about 5mb. Save to disk and when the download is complete, copy the file (mso9.dll) to your C drive (probably c:\programme files\msoffice\office).

    Shut down and reboot and your problem should be solved.

    Good luck!

    But if you rename the file, and repair Office as I've explained before, the file will be restored as well.

    You don't really need to download it anywhere, that is, if you do have the Office CD-ROM available.

    Grtz.
