    This error message indicates that you have an incorrect version of RICHED32.DLL. The version you have installed requires the GAPI32.DLL, whereas other versions do not.

    Download the GAPI32.DLL provided here and put it into your WINNT\SYSTEM32 folder. This will update your system so that you can utilize the various wizards.

    Hope this is the "actual" problem. Link seems to have vanished! so search the MS site it's on there.
