MSVCIRT.DLL file is linked to missing export MSVCRT.DLL : ?? _u@yapaxi@z


When attempting to start The Compleat Botanica or any of its utilities after a successful installation, you may encounter the message:

MSVCIRT.DLL file is linked to missing export MSVCRT.DLL : ?? _u@yapaxi@z

Resolution If one of your existing applications has incorrectly installed these two files, the Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine will report this message and will not be able to start.  To fix this problem, restore the original files from your operating system CD.

You may use the Restore batch file located on the Compleat Botanica CD in D:\Troubleshooting\MSVCRT\Win98 or D:\Troubleshooting\MSVCRT\WinMe.  The affected DLL's are system protected files and can only be restored in MS-DOS mode on Windows Millennium Minimal Boot (Windows Me).

See Microsoft's report on problem Q296551 for more about this problem.
