Problem(Abstract)

In some circumstances it may be necessary to reinstall OLE files on a system, such as repeated OLE or registry errors, failure of OLE compliant applications or tasks. The steps below detail which files to remove and reinstall.

Resolving the problem

OLE files are common system files that are located in the Windows directory and are used by all OLE compliant applications. This means they may be overwritten or out of date. If it has been determined that there is a need to reinstall these files a list follows of the files to rename and reinstall.

How to Reinstall OLE2

1. Rename the following files (found in the \Windows\System directory) to give them a different extension.( for example OLE2.OLD):

OLE2.REG
COMPOBJ.DLL
OLE2.DLL
OLE2CONV.DLL
OLE2DIS P.DLL
OLE2NLS.DLL
OLE2PROX.DLL
STORAGE.DLL
TYPELIB.DLL
