This message is reported persistently by Norton WinDoctor.

Missing File: "C:\WINDOWS\System32\MAPISRVR.EXE"
"C:\WINDOWS\System32\MAPISRVR.EXE" cannot access a necessary file, "gapi32.dll."

The inaccessible dll is one of the very few faults that's not automatically repairable by Windoctor. Although it doesn't seem to be causing any obvious trouble, I was curious and went looking. Found it at
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\Mapi\1033\NT\GAPI32.DLL

Anyone know what it is and what if anything I should do about it?

I don't know but I get exactly the same result with WinDoctor.

Norton just is not looking in the right place for it. Do a search on your computer for GAPI32.DLL. If you did an upgrade you should have 2. One is located C:\Program Files\Common Files\SYSTEM\Mapi\1033\95old
The new one is here C:\Program Files\Common Files\SYSTEM\Mapi\1033\NT
Copy the one from the NT folder and put it in C:\windows\system32
That will keep Norton happy and you should be good to go.

Thanks Conard. Yesterday I discovered that file and done exactly what you suggested. WinDoctor now finds no errror.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
