Here is the issue, I am trying to install CF 5.0 on a new Win 2003 server. I am getting a constant error that says, WSM.exe, this app has failed to start because WINSTRM.dll was not found. Re-installing the app may fix this. I have tried reinstalling the app, so this is clearly not the problem. Any suggestions?

Download this file:
and save it to your desktop.

Then, goto Start >> Run >> cmd.exe

Once Command Prompt opens, type COPY "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\winstrm.dll" "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\winstrm.dll" and hit [Enter]

If it asks to be overwritten then type N and post here that it asked you.

If it says it has been copied successfully, then type "REGSVR32 %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\winstrm.dll"

See if this works.
