Hi, here are a few suggestions. Please give them a try, and request a
clarification if they dont work.
According to the MSDN .DLL library, mnyutil.dll is installed by Money
2000 deluxe, and should be a size of 389,176 bytes. The modification
date should be 8/4/1999, and the version should be 188.8.131.521.
We need to find out if there is any chance your version is incorrect
somehow. So I need you to click on start, search, and then in the
dialogue that opens, click on all files and folders. Then in the
All or part of the filename box enter mnyutil.dll. Under look in
make sure local hard drives is displayed, unless you only have one
drive. If you only have one drive, its alright if it says c:. Click
After a while, you should hopefully get some results. If you do not
find any file, click on start, my computer, tools, folder options,
view, and make sure that show hidden files and folders is turned on.
If it is, then the file were looking for is missing completely. If it
is not turned on (ie. Do not show hidden files and folders is
selected) change it, and then perform the search again. If you are
still missing the file, then we know its gone totally.
If you do get results from the search box, please right click on the
file that is found and choose properties. Make a note of the file
location, date, size, and version numbers. If any of them do not match
what is displayed above, then the file is likely corrupted.
Basically, regardless of what we find above (which is mostly for
information) we need to try to extract the file from your Money 2000
deluxe CD. If the file was found as existing on your system, right
click it in the search results, and choose rename. Add your initials
to the beginning of the filename. Insert your money CD, but when the
autorun/etc. comes up, close it. Click on start, search, all files and
folders, and look for a file named money.cab, but this time in the
look in box, click the down arrow and select the cdrom drive that you
put the money disc into. Click on search.
When the results window shows money.cab, double click on it to open
it. Its just like browsing a folder. Look for the mnyutil.dll file,
and right click on it. Choose extract. A dialogue box will open asking
where you would like to extract it to. If you found the dll file in
the first search above, then navigate to that folder and click
extract. If you didnt find the file in our first step, then navigate
to the folder that Money is installed into. Most likely it is:
C:\program files\Microsoft\money or c:\program files\Microsoft money
Or something along those lines.
Once the file has been extracted, reboot the computer and see if the
error persists. If it doesnt, then run Money to be sure it works, and
then youre set.
If it does, or if you do not have a money 2000 deluxe CD, then well
have to try some other steps.
Click on start, run, and type in msconfig and press enter. When the
configuration utility opens, click on the startup tab, and look
through the list of programs for anything that mentions MONEY, such as
Money reminder. De-select the checkbox to prevent it from running.
Close msconfig and restart the computer. If the problem is gone, run
Money and make sure it still works.
If it still persists, then we may have a more serious problem. Please
try scanning the computer with an update virus checker. Then, request
an answer clarification and Ill do some more checking. There are no
mentions of chdecnum in the search engines. Perhaps the actual error
is slightly different?
I await your clarification request or rating of my answer if we were
