It's in one of the cabinet files in your installation disk. You will need to extract it to the Windows folder. Maybe someone here has a list of the files in the cabinets and could tell us which one to look in.

What is your OS??? Depending to your OS, you need to locate (**) your windows system folder (e.g., c:\windows\system32; c:\winnt, etc)

IF your system cab files are located on the drive (e.g., c:\windows\options\cabs), they can be located as follows:
goto dos (START>RUN>"command"); enter "cd\"; enter "dir /s *.cab"

If applicable, move to the directory where the windows cabinet files are located (e.g., "cd c:\windows\options\cabs"), and use the DOS EXTRACT command to locate the cab file with your rundll32.exe file...(e.g., EXTRACT /A /D *.cab rundll32.exe).

To reload (extract) the missing file enter to a specific (**) system folder/location via the "EXTRACT" command (eg., extract /a /l c:\windows\system32 c:\windows\options\cabs\win98_21.cab rundll32.exe).

see http://www.helpdesk....windows_9x/548/ as an example...

Alternately, you may be able to use the SFC (system file checker) command...
