SMSINST: The Application or DLL OLE2.DLL is Not a Valid NT Image

This article was previously published under Q200918
SYMPTOMS
The following error is encountered when running a Systems Management Server Installer executable:
Bad Image - The application or DLL OLE2.DLL is not a valid NT image.
This error message can reference another .DLL file.
CAUSE
This occurs if there is already a registered copy of the DLL on the system.
WORKAROUND
There are four possible workarounds:

  • Remove any occurrences of the self-registering files from the Installer script if they were incorrectly captured during a repackage. Then repackage and test. You can check the Install.log for information on any self registering files.
  • Delete the pre-existing version of the DLL on the target clients. This will help eliminate possible conflicts during the package installation.
  • List the affected files in the Installer including Advanced Configuration, Options, and "System DLLs to exclude from Watch Application" and repackage. This will keep the Installer from including the problem files. This solution is not ideal if you are using this package to install updated files.
  • Switch from 32-bit to the 16-bit version of Installer. This message should not occur when using the 16-bit version of Installer.
