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?

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
