When opening GBM after installing on Windows 2000 Platforms

This occurs due to the fact that GBM requires Internet Explorer 6 as a minimum installation requirement or the DLL is missing.


  1. Upgrading to IE6, you may install it from the following link:
  2. Installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

GBM 8 and later require the Service Pack 1 version of the MFC 8 and Visual C++ 8 components.  If upgrading to IE6 did not solve your problem, you can download a small program from Microsoft that will restore any missing files.  The files are available here:

Microsoft components for 32-bit Windows versions (SP1):

Microsoft components for 64-bit Windows versions (SP1):
