    Has anyone found a fix for this error message?
    I got this message after install and restart.
    "The Procedure Entry Point GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in
    the DLL PSAPI.DLL"

    Did I read somewhere that you cannot install IE7 Beta 2 if you have W-XP
    with SP2 installed?

  2. Do you have Office installed? Run an Office Repair; that should get things
    sorted.

    That was a good Idea but that didn't help. What I did find that the psapi.dll
    is a Microsoft file that is operated by the search command in the start menu
    of Windows. When I disabled that and reinstalled IE7, it worked fine. Well
    most.

    Thanks to your IE7 site about the correct way to install IE7, I was able to
    get it up and running just great. The web site was very helpful. I do have
    one minor issue that I am sure I can figure out in time.

    I am sure the is a on and off lock for the right mouse click that controls
    if you can right click on the Start Menu or the Program Menu Folders, Nothing
    happens, The right click works every where else. Thanks again for the great
    help, Paul

    Yes, but how do I disable it?

    Right click on start, the click on properties. Click on customize then click
    on advance. Scroll down the Start Menu Items, you will find a box checked
    that says search. Just uncheck the box, click ok, then click apply then ok
    again. Reboot system. It is safe to recheck the box once IE7 installed.

    I only had this problem with the Psapi.dll on the first installation of IE7.
    After an Un-install of IE7 and a reinstall I did not get the error message
    the second time. Hope this helps, Paul
