    What version of Windows are you running?
    One thing to try first is to see if you have ole32.dll on your hard drive and to register it.
    To register it go to start>run and paste this in

    regsvr32 ole32.dll Press enter


    Post back with the results.

    If ole32.dll is missing, the DCOM98 version is the same as the version on the WinSE Install disc. Use SFC to extract it. And then check the version number. It should be
    4.71.2900

    I get the same info since I installed AOL v7.0 on Windows 95. OLEAUT32.DLL file was located right where it should be, but system is unable to locate it.

    Book Worm,
    the file may not be registered properly. Try the command. Go to start>run and copy and paste the following:
    regsvr32 oleaut32.dll


    Press enter

    I tried registering OLEAUT32.DLL as you specified, but now I'm getting the following: missing 'regsvr32' file... For some strange reason, my CD-Rom (G:) drive is also not working now.

    Tried reloading Windows 95, deleted/re-installed AOL, and nothing works. Unable to get any type of internet access, so now I'm going back-n-forth to another computer checking my posts.

    HELP!!!

    Thanx for any info.

    This thread is 4 years old but was never marked "Solved" My problem was similar, I couldn't even install AOL. I finally got it fixed and wrote about it at http://forums.techguy.org/t401885.html .
