Does that error prevent XP from starting up? If not, found the following here: http://www.experts-e...Q_22967568.html
An *.nls file is a National Language Support Code Page for a particular character set used by Windows and other programs.
Doesn't the "error" message actually say what the problem is with that file rather than just specifying it? I mean, does it say that it is missing or something more?
First of all, look in C:\Windows\System32 and tell us if the file C_437.nls exists there.
On my computer (XP Pro+SP2+all updates) it looks like this:
Directory of C:\WINDOWS\system32 08/04/2004 07:00 AM 66,594 c_437.nls
This file should also be in
Directory of C:\windows\system32\dllcache 08/04/2004 07:00 AM 66,594 c_437.nls
Download the CD iso image of the [url="http://%5burl="http://www.mharding.net/downloads/xp_recovery_cd.iso"]XP Recovery Console[/url]
You don't burn the iso file itself to CD., you create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called DeepBurner which will do this.
- Boot the CD and at the first opportunity, enter R to start the Recovery Console.
- At the command prompt type the following:
copy C:\windows\system32\dllcache\c_437.nls C:\WINDOWS\system32
- Enter Y if you're prompted to overwrite the existing file.
- Reboot the computer.
