An "Invalid File Format" error appears if an outdated or corrupted .VBX or .DLL file used by MindMaze is encountered. This may occur if a MindMaze file is deleted or overwritten after installing Encarta.
MindMaze copies and uses these .VBX and .DLL files:
When you run MindMaze, it searches for the files in this order:
- Current directory
- WINDOWS directory
- WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory
- Path directories
To resolve this error, locate and delete duplicate copies of these files on the hard disk drive, and recopy the above files to the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.
Note that a "minimum installation" of Encarta corrects this problem. A minimum installation forces MindMaze to read the correct files from the compact disc Viewer 2.0
