Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

Remove BT Voyager 100 Modems drivers with the newdev.dll error

The newdev.dll is something to do with SP3 being installed, however if you try with SP2 you will get the Can't Open Bitmap and still you will be frustrated.

If you have SP2 installed you will recieve the error this is when you use the older newdev.dll (2146). If you install SP3 you will get the error this is with the newest newdev.dll (5512) that SP3 installs

If you download this file it has both NEWDEV.DLL versions, you will need to restart you PC in safe mode to replace the DLL file then restart, see if you can get it to work I didn't and gave up in the end I even tried the installer for the origonal modem also included all without any luck.
In the end I removedall traces of the driver using the jv16pt v1.0.0.124 FREEWARE version, the 2009 version is about £25 but if you like the free one the latest will impress you as you can remove services and control panel shortcuts.

Hope this helps you I will find another fool proof method soon I believe that if you use doctor100.exe from the AOL CD you can remove the driver however I don't have one so I can't try this at the moment.

After you have installed this trial version it will place a buy me now icon to the desktop I recommend that you do there are many other tools that perform similar functions, CCleaner from Piriform is probably the best freeware alternative that deals with registry and applications but doesn't give you the control of the power tools.

It is also available for the U3 stick drives now at the suppliers website so you don't have to create your own I use this loads on PC's that I fix to remove all the **** in the cache, cookie and almost all temp files that clog up your regsitry.

skype kernel32


Skype v6.6.0.106 is the last version which supports XP SP2. If you try install newer version, you will need SP3 installed, or you will get the kernel32 problem "Failed to get proc adress for getLogicalProcessorInformation (KERNEL32.Dll)".

If you don't want to install SP3 for your XP, here is a work around for you to run Skype with XP SP2.
1. Download Skypesetupfull.exe v6.3.30.105;
2. Uninstall your current version of Skype from Control Panel;
3. Block the website download.skype.com in your router or in the
Host file;
4. Delete any auto downloaded skypesetup.msi in %Temp%
folder;
5. Install Skype v6.3.30.105.
Done.

When you try to install Windows updates from the Windows Update Web site, the Microsoft Update Web site, or by using Automatic Update, you receive a message that the update is not installed successfully. Additionally, the update is not displayed in the update history.

You visit the Windows Update Web site, or the Microsoft Update Web site.
Note When you visit the update Web site, the latest version of Windows Update software will be installed in your computer.
You install Windows XP Service Pack (SP3) without a restart.
You try to install Windows updates after the install of Windows XP SP3.

Then cause ;

This issue occurs because the Wups2.dll file that is included in the latest version of Windows Update is not installed correctly.

For scenario 1, the registry entries that correspond to the Wups2.dll file are missing after the repair install of Windows XP. The release version of Windows XP does not contain the Windows Update software.

For scenario 2, the registry entries that correspond to Windows Update are changed back to the Windows XP SP2 version if you did not restart the computer before you install Windows XP SP3. The registry entries for the Wups2.dll file are changed to pointing to the Wups.dll file that is included in the release version of Windows XP SP2.

Method 2: Register the Wups2.dll file,

To have MS register the Wups2.dll file in Windows for you, go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943144#FixItForMeAlways.
