View Full Version : CompObj.dll error after installation ???

Many of my clients has complained about a message, saying that COMPOBJ.DLL
has been overwritten, and that Windows has to be restarted to let Windows
repair this file ???

This was with InstallShield Express Professional 2.0 for Delphi 3.0.

Is this a bug, or is it just a normal behaviour of Windows 95 ?

-if it is a bug, is it corrected in ISX 2.01 ?

Best regards

Overwritten? Or corrupted? If overwritten, it is usually the behaviour of
Express to UPDATE files with newer versions if necessary. This WILL always
warrant a reboot, since the file is locked by Windows.

Yes, but some times it happens, just after the files has been copied, other
times it happens when Windows has been restarted.

After Windows has been restarted, it says that "Windows has to be restarted,
in order to repair a file, that has been replaced by some application"...

I don't remember the excact error message, but I have seen it lots of times
!!!

I was just wondering why Windows wants to repair the file, that has just
been installed ?

There has never been any problems about it, i'm just not happy about such
messages, without having an explanation ready for my customers... :-)

This usually happens when an application tries at access the COMPOBJ.DLL
file before it was registered and updated properly. Please make sure you
don't run ANY applications while installing (not even the Microsoft
officebar or similiar launchers).
