"Invalid File Format" Error When Launching MindMaze

SUMMARY

An "Invalid File Format" error appears if an outdated or corrupted .VBX or .DLL file used by MindMaze is encountered.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.

MORE INFORMATION

MindMaze copies and uses these .VBX and .DLL files:

VBRUN200.DLL
ANIBUTON.VBX
CMDIALOG.VBX
MCI.VBX
SBC.VBX
THREED.VBX


When you run MindMaze, it searches for the files in this order:

  1. Current directory
  2. WINDOWS directory
  3. WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory
  4. 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
