    Hello people, another problem I’m trying to solve if you don’t mind helping out.

    I go to control panel>install/uninstall>windows setup. Up pops an applet says

    An error has occurred in your program, to keep working click ignore and save your work in a new file. To quit this program click close, you will lose information entered since your last save”.

    I close that applet then I get another comes straight at me again.

    Rundll32 has caused an error in SetupXdll, rundll will now close

    There must be a solution out there somewhere.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi jwBirdsong, problem solved, different solution though. It has to do with registry cleaners removing folders it shouldn't.

    Ist forum told me "If you have used a registry cleaner (EasyCleaner or RegCleaner, for example), hopefully it has an "Undo" function. Run the "Undo" function and use its option to restore the item that has VarLDID in it".

    this is what another site said on a simirlar line,
    Your setupx.dll error is usually the result of first having deleted some
    empty folders in Program Files that were placed there when Win Me was
    installed that are used for optional components of Win Me and then using a
    registry cleaner such as EasyCleaner which removed some necessary entries
    required for Add/Remove Program>Windows Setup to function because the
    target folders were no longer present. You can avoid this happening in future
    by not deleting such folders and similarly not deleting any values in the key

    He attached a zip containing a reg file containing all of the
    required entries,
    Just merged into the registry fixed it.

    Have also saved the files on a floppy if anyone needs it or follow the link to find the forum
