Re: setup_wm.exe entry point not found

Yes, that error text will absolutely not be found in that log, sorry. It
doesn't get that granular, just provides some basic guidance. =)

Is "Error: " listed in c:\winnt\wmsetup.log anywhere?

Speaking for myself only.
See for some helpful WMP info.

Hello. Sorry was gone for a while.

I found the wmsetup.log in my C:\WINNT folder. The file is 189KB's.

I did a search in this document for "The procedure entry point
could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll" and was not
found. I also did a search for "GetUserGeoID" and was not found.

I recall on System 1, I updated Adobe Flash player and Shockwave Player.
think Shockwave player 10 is the last version for Windows 2000. The
were installed before executing the WMP 9 upgrade from the Windows
Then the error appeared. On System 2, the image that I made in 2004 as a
backup, had an older Flash player and Shockwave Player installed from that
period. I did not update those players. I just concentrated on manually
installed WMP 6.4 and codecs. Then WMP 7.1 and Codecs(WMP9Codecs.exe).

Do you think that the Flash Player and/or Shockwave Player is connected?
WMP integrating something from these player's. or they have nothing to do
with the error, being that the error was produced from the WMP update or

During the Manual Windows Update detection, I don't recall if it installs
updates Abobe Flash Player or Shockwave Player (Question: Do web browser's
like Windows Explorer install this as a component?)

Note: When I say System 1 and System 2, I mean one physical PC with an
Apps etc. System 1 is the before configuration and System 2 is a
image of the OS before I started adding applications on System 1.

The "7.1 and newer" 9x codec package updates your system with the WMP10
codecs. It doesn't touch setup_wm.exe . None of the v10 codec dlls in
question import GetUserGeoID.
Nothing in the v9 package imports GetUserGeoID.

Is "Error: " listed in c:\windows\wmsetup.log anywhere? (wmsetup.log
be at c:\winnt instead.)
The question is who is trying to import this. Typically this error has
been seen on machines that had Windows 2000 installed over a different OS
without the drive being formatted, which results in DLL version

Again, for WMP 7.1 codecs, I remembered the file name coded with 7.1.
it safe to install WMP9Codecs.exe?

I don't believe you needed to.

What do you mean I don't need it? Starting from WMP 6.4, I was trying
install the player and codecs in order by the WMP'ers version. I don't
about each specific codec but thought I should install it to make WMP
functional and enhanced.

As to the version numbers.

I hope that using Windows Explorer was the correct method you expected
me to find the info. If it is'nt, then please tell me how.

Here goes. I used Windows Explorer, browsed to the location of the
right clicked on the file, clicked properties, clicked the Version Tab
read the file version info. This is what I found:

System 1 w SP4 and WMP 9

Kernel32.dll [5.0.2195.7135]
Setup_wm.exe []

System 2 w/SP2 and WMP 7.1

Kernel32.dll [5.0.2195.2778]
Setup_wm.exe []

Both these systems after running the WMP9Codec.exe and running WMP9
install, gave me the errors mentioned.
