Err Msg with Infinite Disk: One of the Library Files Needed...


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.1, 3.11


When you use Infinite Disk for MS-DOS from Chili Pepper Software, the following error message appears when you try to run any program from Windows:

One of the library files needed to run this application is damaged. Please reinstall this application.


To resolve this problem, please contact Chili Pepper Software.


Infinite Disk is a utility program designed to optimize disk space by performing three types of activities on your hard disk:

  • File aging
  • Automatic migration of qualified files
  • Automatic recall of any migrated file when opened

File Aging

File aging is performed by IDRES.EXE, an Infinite Disk terminate-and-stay- resident (TSR) program that changes the creation date of all files to the date the program was installed.

Automatic Migration

Migration is the process of moving a file from one storage level to the next.

   Level 0 = Standard file with no compression
   Level 1 = A file that has been compressed by Infinite Disk
   Level 2 = A file that has been removed from the local hard disk 

Infinite Disk automatically migrates files from one level to the next based on age criteria that you define during installation.

Automatic Recall

Recall is the process of decompression and/or restoring a file from a Level 1 or Level 2 migration.

The product included here is manufactured by vendors independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
