SYMPTOMS

While installing, launching, or using features in a Windows 95 or Windows 98 application under Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000, the following error message appears: Program.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point SomeProcedureName could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.
Program.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point SomeProcedureName could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.

CAUSE

The application is misinterpreting the operating system version and is trying to call a procedure in the Windows 95 or Windows 98 version of the Dynamic Link Library (DLL) that is unavailable in Windows NT version 4.0 or Windows 2000.

Clicking OK, the only option, may or may not allow the application to continue.

RESOLUTION

Contact the application vendor for an updated version that runs under Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000.
