    As I begin to do the NT 4.0 to Windows 2003 in places
    upgrade I am getting this message when I place the 2003
    Server CD in my NT 4.0 Server box and run setup.exe:

    Setup.exe - Entry Point Not Found

    The procedure entry point GetLcstError could not be
    located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.DLL

    *** I have since determined that I am not able to run the
    setup programs of other software either. *** Get messages
    stating the Installation Software could not be started.

    I have installed the latest updates for Service pack 6a.

    I have also reinstalled the Windows Installer.

    Would appreciate any insight others could offer

  2. Hi Skeet,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    The problem can occur if some system files are replaced by previous version.

    You can try to copy the following files from anther WinNT computer to
    replace the files on this one.

    Winsock.dll, Wsock32.dll, Ws2_32.dll, Ws2help.dll

    If the problem still persists, I would like to suggest that you perform a
    parallel installation and replace the new system files in original system
    with the old files.

    Have a nice day!
