DrTCP won't run

I've downloaded (more than once) DrTCP but it "encounters a problem and needs to close." It is definitely the XP version, although I even tried the 2K version with the same result. Sad

Anyone any idea why that might be? Instead, I've used TCPOptimiser, apparently successfully., but I'd be interested to know what's up with Doc TCP.

Yes, DRTCP021. I've downloaded both the zip and exe versions, but both fail.

Thanks, though.

I do not know what, if any, system dll's that DrTCP may use.
If you have a dll or sys file that DrTCP has to access, say for example tcpmon.dll or netcfgx.dll, but it has been replaced by a non standard version or one with a virus attached, the entry point into that dll will be incorrect and DrTCP will give the "encountered a problem" error.

Only a guess, but that is normally the reason for persistent errors.

Try installation in safe mode.

Is the account username in XP you run under, set as an administrator?

I just tried safe-mode, but with the same result. :?

To acarr

I am set as administator, sadly.

To cqg4uzg

I have both those particular dlls (dated 8-2001 and 8-2002).

I'll continue monitoring this group for a while, but perhaps the DrTCP group might be best, with no disrespect to your good selves. Shockedops:

The two dll's I gave are only examples of dll's that DrTCP might call. I do not know what it calls, if any.
If there is a group specifically for DrTCP, true, you may get more help there.

Hi Pat

Yes, I understood that from your first reply.

I've posted on tweaks on BBReports.

Thanks
