This article was previously published under Q249592


After you install Microsoft Picture It! 2000, instead of being prompted to save a file when you quit a program, you may receive a message similar to the following:


untitled ____________?

NOTE: The message and title of the dialog box may vary depending on the program you are using.

If you click Yes, the file is saved. If you click No, the file is closed without being saved. If you click Cancel, you return to the program window.

This behavior has been reported with the following programs:

  • Microsoft Paint
  • Microsoft Word Pad
  • Microsoft Image Composer
  • Microsoft MapPoint 2000
  • Adobe PhotoDeluxe
  • Corel Photo-Paint


This behavior can occur because Microsoft Picture It! 2000 installs a system file used for Japanese formatting (Mfc42loc.dll) that may not be compatible with some programs.


To resolve this issue, rename the Mfc42loc.dll file:

  1. Quit all running programs.
  2. Click Start, and then click Shut Down.
  3. Click Restart in MS-DOS mode, and then click OK.
  4. Type the following line at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:

    ren c:\windows\system\mfc42loc.dll mfc42loc.old

  5. Restart the computer.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Picture It! 2000.
