    'Entry Point Not Found' error message

    I get 2 error messages when I try to run DX Diag as follows:

    Entry Point not Found
    The procedure entry point GetRawInputDeviceInfoW can't be located in USER32.dll

    and:

    Entry Point not Found
    Procedure entry point DdEntry1 can't be found in GDI32.dll

    No other errors show. I also got the first error while trying to run a demo program for a HDTV tuner card's software.

    I'm running 2k w/sp4 using DirectX V9 I have also did a 'upgrade' of 2k for another problem that was resolved per M$'s recomemdation. I don't know if these two problems were there before the 'upgrade'!

    Any ideas??

    That's a common one.

    Entry Point Not Found is the error MS applies to DLLs trying to link to other DLLs. They need to have a procedure to call when they start up.

    If you can't get an entry point in user32.dll, you have an issue where either your video driver is not kosher with the version of Windows you're running, or user32.dll has been replaced by a malicious program. The first is far more likely than the second.

    Try downloading older versions of your video/capture/tuner drivers. One should work.
