Frequently Asked Questions

(Dr. Prateek Mishra, India, Nov 6, 2000)
I use E- mail function of SuperMemo through Help : Support : Technical support. My Outlook Express opens and then hangs up. How can I correct it?
SuperMemo uses MAPI interface to send e-mail. To make sure Outlook complies with MAPI you need to do the following:

(Peter Cool, the Netherlands, Oct 31, 1998)
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

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

If you have Internet Explorer installed, HTML components will work (#5950)
(Mariusz, Sunday, July 29, 2001 8:34 AM)
You say that to use HTML component I need mshtml.dll and shdocvw.dll installed, but where can I find these files?
These files come with Internet Explorer. If you have IE installed, you already have these files

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)
SuperMemo 2000 asks for Mshtml.dll and Shdocvm.dll libraries but I got them both in c:\windows\system folder. Is it a bug?
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
