Question:
During an attempt to install SuperMemo, I have received the following two messages:

  1. Cannot write to supermemo.ini
  2. This control requires version 4.7 or greater of comctl32.dll

Answer:
The problems is with your comctl32.dll library in Windows. Old Windows 95 installations may contain an earlier version of this library. Please use the URL listed below to download a free update (about 500K; ver. 4.72). This will not only let you run SuperMemo but will also improve stability of other W95 and NT applications

Up-to-date Mshtml.dll and Shdocvm.dll files are needed to use the HTML component (#5026)
(MZ, Poland, Wednesday, August 08, 2001 5:21 PM)
Question:
SuperMemo 2000 asks for Mshtml.dll and Shdocvm.dll libraries but I got them both in c:\windows\system folder. Is it a bug?
Answer:
You need to make sure that two other conditions are met: 

  1. Your Windows is indeed running from c:\windows folder 
  2. The files are up-to-date (not older than September 1997) 

Otherwise, SuperMemo will display the following message: "You need Mshtml.dll and Shdocvw.dll installed to use the HTML component". Note that depending on the system, these DLLs can also be located in System32 folder
