    I keeping getting an error reading" The ordinal 129 could not be located in the dynamic link library MAPi32.dll" At the top of error box it says ccap.exe. Also Norton Anti Virus will not do scheduled auto scan. Is this error connected to Norton not doing auto scan?
    Error sometimes reads odinal 21, also. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Seems that both ordinal 129 and ordinal 21 are related to email problems, are you by any chance using Eudora ?

    I also had "Ordinal 21" and "Ordinal 129" errors related to email programs after downloading Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2005. The 129 errors tended to occur when starting up NIS 2005, or when receiving emails. The 21 errors occurred when NAV scanned outgoing emails. Symantec tech support seemed t think it was not their problem, and suggested a number of highly useless fixes. However, I searched for MAPI32 and found teh location in WINDOWS\System32\ directory. Hovering the cursor over a file in Windows Explorer (at least in Win XP Home) shows the properties and this file was apparently from Mozilla not Microsoft. On the Microsoft support website FAQs I could not find a specific reference to this error, but it suggested using sigverif.exe to find drivers in this folder that do not have digital signatures, and mapi32.dll was one of over 900 that it found! Not wishing to spend hours on a fruitless search for new drivers etc., I then found another FAQ about fixing corrupted MAPI32 files that said installing many programs can cause the mapi32.dll file to be corrupted and suggested running a tiny 3K program in the same directory called fixmapi.exe. I did this, and the errors have apparently disappeared. I suggest this as a possibe fix (especiallly if you recently downloaded Netscape 8.0, Mozilla or Firefox browsers, new email programs like Netscape 7.2, or security programs like NIS 2005, and are getting this type of error in ccApp.exe (themain component of NIS 2005.)

    Couldn't get fixmapi.exe to work after I found it in system32, but also found a site online while searching for fixmapi.exe there, that spoke of deleting file FRMCACHE.DAT from Windows files. Did this and Outlook Exoress now
    opening properly.

    thanks for the hint. I was having the "Ordinal 21 not found" problem too. I know that Mozilla installs a MAPI32.DLL in Windows\System32. I replaced it with the old version from another PC that did not have Mozilla and the problem has gone away. Warning: this may break Mozilla email. Mozilla email still works for me however.

    I also sometimes got messages that CCAPP.EXE had crashed during logon, and once got a message "Symantec User Session failed. If you were in the middle of something your data may have been lost."

    I tried reinstalling the Norton Internet Security but that did not help.

    Using Symantec Internet Security 2005, Mozilla 1.7.5 (email), Firefox 1.0.4, Windows XP SP 2. Also had earlier Mozillas 1.3, 1.5b.

    I am having similar problems with Norton 360 and Eudora 5.2.0.9

    Norton crashes when I try to configure the antispam app
