I replaced the version in my system directory with the newer one from the AVG Free directory by simply copying it over, after backing-up the old version. All seems well.
In general, is replacing system files with newer version as simple as that? Should a batch file also be run, to properly register the new file? Would the careful thing to do be to use something like Dependency Walker to first determine what other files may be affected by replacing PSAPI.DLL for a later version?
This may show wishful thinking, but: because this newer version of PSAPI.DLL comes as part of a freeware package, does anyone know if this newer version is able to be redistributed freely, thus superceding the version listed above at Microsoft?
Thanks in advance.
I've since found this semi-recent thread here in these forums:
The dispute about whether build 5.00.2134.1 could run successfully under 98 SE didn't seem to be resolved. Has anyone had any further experiences?
