    Internet Explorer 6 can not be repaired due to the following errors:

    File IEPEERS.DLL is missing

    What do I do to repair this. It is preventing me from printing from AOL or the Internet. I can print from my desktop. When I attempt to print from AOL or the internet I get this message:


    Line 639
    Char 1
    Error Invalid argument
    Code 0
    URL: res://C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHDOC.DLL/preview.dlg

    Hi, You need to extract a new copy of the .dll file, here is a page with directions for IE5.5- I assume they would be OK to follow for 6.0 as well.
    http://www.aumha.org/elist/elist010702.htm (The source)

    Cannot Print from Internet Explorer IE5 or 5.5 For Win95/98
    If the IEPEERS.DLL file is corrrupted or is the incorrect version, then when trying to print or use print preview you will get the following error message:

    Line: 539
    Char: 2
    Error: Invalid argument.
    Code: 0 URL: res://C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\SHDOCLC.DLL/preview.dlg

    The solution is to extract and register a good copy of IEPEERS.DLL. See the article for detailed instructions.
    I understand that the System File Checker tool can replace this for you- might be easier than the MS directions below.
    You open the RUN box from Start button on desktop, and type sfc.
    Tell it you want to extract one file......type in the filename, and it will do it.

    Note that the MS article contains a small error: if you extract the file from your Original Windows 98 cabs, you still won't be able to repair Internet Explorer, as it will complain that Iepeers.dll is the wrong version.

    You will have to extract it from your IE 6.0 installation cabs, most probably located in your Windows\Windows Update Setup Files folder.

    You can use SFC for that:
