Hi all:
I need your help since I have not been able to find a resolution to this problem. I have a PC running an AMD 1900+ with Win 98SE. I have two CD Rom drives, one regular and another that is a CD RW drive. I have installed Photoshop 7.0 on my machine and it had been working without a problem. I tried to use it last night and I got the following error:

"Photoshop.exe linked to a missing export advapi32.dll Get effective rights from AclA"

I therefore thought the dll file had gone bad so I replaced it with a fresh copy. Same problem!!

I thought the installation went bad, so I uninstalled the program, then reinstalled Photoshop via the regular CD Rom drive and the installation went fine. By the way, I did deactivate the virus program before installation. I then tried to open the program, and I get the above message and another message that a "device is not working". I went into device manager and everything is working fine. Thinking that the regular CD Rom drive was bad, I uninstalled the program, and then installed it using the CD RW drive. Same error message. In uninstalled again, and this time I copied the files from the CD to to c: drive and I then installed from the C: drive. Same error messages. Please help, this has me stumped since the program had worked a couple of month ago without any errors.
Photoshop website indicates the solution is to re-install the OS. There has to be a easier way to resolve this problem. Please give me detailed explanation showing all the steps I need to take since I am new to this.
Since I may not check the forum for a while, suggestions can be sent to my email address:

Thanks :)

No responses in this thread... but my problem is similar. I recently started getting this message popping up on my screen, and I can't associate it with any action I am actively doing...
Box entitled "Error Starting Program",
Yellow warning triangle, and a message always reading
"The MSNAPPAU.EXE file is linked to missing export ADVAPI32.DLL: ConvertStringSecurityDescriptorToSecurityDescriptorW. "
Button labelled OK.
If I click OK it goes away and returns later.
If I don't click OK, or move it away it just stays on my screen.
Windows ME, regularly updated, had all the Windows download updates etc.
