    I am new to this but I am hoping that someone can help me with my problem seems how Microsoft, Kodak, or HP can't help me fix this problem I have had a Kodak camera for about 3 to 4 years now and I have never had a problem with it. Now I just recently bought a Kodak all in one printer and after I downloaded the software for the printer I started having problems with my Kodak easy share software. Everytime I try to open my software I get a error saying WindowName: EasyShare.exe - Entry Point Not Found and in the box it says The procedure entry point [email protected]@@[email protected]@[email protected] could not be located in the dynamic link library Atlas.dll. Then when I click ok it comes up with another window That says One or more system DLL's could not be loaded: ESApp.dll. and then when you click ok there another window opens and it says EasyShare is unable to run. Please run setup and choose repair to fix the application. (0,5006,0). Then I click on repair and it opens the download screen and you select repair and it goes through the procedure and it still does the same thing all over again I am getting frustrated and my husband want to download pictures to sell stuff and it won't work Can someone please help me fix this problem? I would really appriciate it if someone could shed some light on this subject, Kodak says it's that my kodak software don't like my Windows Vista program. HELP!!!!!!!!!! Please. HELP HELP HELP :confused: Shelley

    ok i worked on this one for a while and i have lots of info on what i did, your running vista so i dont know if this will help you, but maybe tere is enough common things that there might be a singular issue.
    running xp home sp2
    all in one printer and easy share camera
    problem occurred after installing the latest version of the easy share program got a really long error message and it then asked if i wanted to go to the kodak site for the answer to the problem, so i did. it didnt have an exact match to the error code it gave but offered suggestions anyway. long story short tried to upgrade to newer version several time and evertime it errored out with the same code i downloaded the easyshare cleaner on their site and used it, it said it could not find a file i cant remember the file name but it was not located on the hard drive i had to put in the all in one printer disk to find it (under the scanner folder) the cleaner would not work without this file, which didnt make sense, since it was just supposed to remove the files left over after you uninstall it, but any way i got it uninstalled and successfully used the cleaner utility and tried again to install the new version same issues over and over again i then downloaded a registry cleaner and and i did sfc /scannow uninstaled it cleaned it with their easy share cleaner ran the registry cleaner it found a ton of kodak stuff still installed in the registry did all that then tried to install the origional program that came with the printer...same error. so i got into the nitty gritty of the error report it kept wanting to send when i was trying to install it. it kept referring to the same memory address...hmmm ok pulled out the memory (256 meg stick, hp win xp home sp2 with a intell celleron) and those that know that configuration runs slow.....real slow, and it shouldnt have ever been sold with that low of ram, or imho that model processor.(celleron should be burried with winme) moving on changed the ram and went to 512, the origional error stopped occuring and the program fuly installed i wa so happy when if finished i thought my trouble were over, it completed rebooted and when i clicked on it, it opened a window and said it need to upgrade the catalogs... ok i clicked ok and then i got the error (0,5006,0) do you want to repair, i said yes and it did its thing i restarted it and same thing so this time i said no and went to the install program ran it and chose repair from there, same thing. ok here is what i did next
    ran easyshare cleaner
    erased the kodac folders in program files, and in common files
    start, run,prefetch. deleted everything in there, lots of kodak stuff.
    ran the registry tuner cleaned all the kodak stuff out
    sfc /scannow
    and once again tried to install the origional software.
    need to update catalog
    error (0,5006,0) do you want to reapir or reinstall the software......
    i spent way too much time on this one, its a friends computer, and he would like to have his eqipment working again.
    now some points of note
    the printer is not recognized, period
    i can plug anything into the usb port and windows will see it and install or try to install the device, the printer however, it dosent even see as having been plugged in. the icon in printer settings show the printer there and ready to print, but when you try to print a test page it sits there and eventually errors out saying that no printer deviece is connected...
    so now i am wondering if the printer is bad, and the (0,5006,0) error is the computer trying to communicate with the printer. so i guess my question for you is when you plug and unplug your printer does windows do anything?? is your printer bad. and if it is i wonder if the new software can break the printer under certain conditions, at least its communication with the computer , i tried a new cord and i printed a test page from the printer itself, the test page worked fine but the new cable made no diffrence. so i hope this helps, i think i am going to xerox my friends hard drive and then do a system restore on the origional copy and see if through all my efforts i missed some small peice of kodak software. but i doubt it will work so ill at least have a back up, then if it dosent work ill have him take back the printer, he's only had it for a month. hope this helps sorry for the misspells and bad grammar punctuation...ect...
