    It occurs right after the patch session. UO won't even load at all. On either of my PC's that are both running Win2000. Any help would be great, or I guess I will have to play a different game.

    Here is the error msg:

    Thanks for the link to that thread. However, the solution they had come up with does not work for me on either of my PCs that are running Win2000 Pro.
    Anyone else have this problem they may have fixed a different way?
    Still unable to play UO at this point.

    We will look into this on our end. One thing that might help the situation is to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com (with internet explorer). This may update you OS to read updated items in the client.

    @Illumina Zero:

    If you took the dbghelp.dll file right out of your winnt\system32 directory, this would be of little help, as it does still not contain the function UO needs (your original Windows 2000 dbghelp.dll could be Ver. 5.0.xxxx, Size is about 160k)

    The dbghelp.dll you need to solve the problem should be of a newer version (V 5.1+). You might try searching your hard disc for some other dbghelp.dll files, there could be more of them installed with other applications (like the example in the other stratics thread). If you are lucky finding an other one, check its version (right click on file -> properties -> version), and if it reads V5.1.xxxx or higher, copy it right into your \uo directory.
    As a last resort, you might want to copy it from a (friend's) Windows XP machine.

    Start Menu
    Run
    Type
    RegSVR32 dbghelp.dll

    Errr RegSVR32 "PATH TO dbghelp.dll"/dbghelp.dll

    Seems like you people are having alot of registry errors...

    afaik no registry prob involved here; it is only the UO client relying on a function ("SymGetTypeInfo") in dbghelp.dll, which is not contained in the original Windows 2000 debug helper library. Later OSs (Win XP+) contain this function.
