MMC.exe – Entry Point Not Found Error

Windows XP you may get an error that says "The procedure entry point could not be located in the dynamic link library mmcbase.dll" when trying to run a program that uses the Microsoft Management Console.

For computers that get the Entry point not found error on Windows XP with Service Pack 3 installed there is a way to fix this issue. It involves uninstalling SP3 from Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.

To do so click on

Start and then Control Panel

open Add or Remove Programs.

Then make sure the box that says Show updates is checked and find the entry for Service Pack 3

click on Remove. You may get a warning that certain programs or updates you applied may not work if you uninstall Service Pack 3 (you may ignore that)

click Ok.

You can always reinstall the updates after you reinstall SP3.

Then you need to download the standalone version of SP3 from the Microsoft website and reinstall it.

Just remember that you will have to do a bunch of Windows updates again and you may have some issues with any hardware you updated after SP3 was installed but most of the time it works out fine.
