  1. Hi,
    I've been searching the internet for the past 4 hours trying to find a solution for this. The only thing i've been able to find are posts for people requesting help without and replies... I really don't want to reformat my HD because I have alot of files that i would rather keep than not. This is a post from someone else somewhere else that has/had my problem but it describes the exact problem that I have(Any and all information that could be provided to save my computer from death would be greatly appriciated)

    I'm upgrading my XP Home system to XP Pro. I've
    encountered the following error:

    unregmp2.exe Entry Point Not Found
    The procedure entry point GetIUMS could not be located in
    the dynamic link library MSDART.DLL

    My only option is to click OK, and the error immediately
    recurs. I've clicked OK over 100 times and am still at
    that spot. Any ideas?

    End of quote.

    Also... I've tried to reboot the machine to see if it would just make it go away... In the very beginning the problem started at 13 min before the installation was complete. After the installation It has since then moved itself up to 34 min. I don't know why this is... Please help

    have you tried doing this

    When the problem occurs, press Shift +F10 to bring up the
    command prompt. Then type taskmgr.exe in the DOS window
    and press Enter. The Task Manager should be started. If
    not, try to press C+Shift+ESC. In the Task Manager
    program, select the error messsage window in the
    application list and click "End Task". In the process
    list, terminate the unregmp2.exe program. Exit the DOS
    prompt window and resume the installation process

    I found the possible solution here

    Let us know if that works for you
    :) & welcome to TS:wave: :wave:

    you are still going to have the problem of not having that file and eventually it will need to be replaced with the original, repair the installation? Maybe that will help but cd everything that is important
