Error: Initializing USER32.dll
Wed Nov 15 14:48:00 GMT 2000
Sometimes problems loading DLLs are due to missing symbols or mismatched DLL,
DLL/EXE versions. One way to see if this is the case is to use Dependency
Walker ( http://www.dependencywalker.com/ ). It will show you if an executable
cannot find a DLL, or if a required entry point in a DLL is missing.
Also, what path is being used for inetd? For debugging purposes, I wonder if
you could wrap inetd in a script to "echo %PATH% > tmpFile" before running
