Problem with displaying the menu

Sorry for my bad english, but I hope, you can understand me, I try it in simple words.

A friend has the same problem that where described here:

http://forum.milonic.com/viewtopic.php?t=1425

If I move the DLLs dxtmsft.dll and dxtrans.dll from windows/system, then I can reproduce the failure. I can not see the menue on the milonic-homepage (only with internet explore, netscape and opera works fine).

Now I have two questions:

1.
Why can I (and the friend, I ask him) see other menus like
http://www.acponline.org/index.html
If I look in the source code, I can see, that this is milonic source (I believe, there is an include <script language="JavaScript1.1" src="/include/js/milonic_src.js" type="text/javascript"></script>)

2.
How can I solve the problem? The friend has try the commands
Start, Run then enter : regsvr32 dxtmsft.dll
Start, Run then enter : regsvr32 dxtrans.dll
without effekt ("succeeded" where display).
On the link, display in the forum message:
http://vindaloo.milonic.co.uk/pipermail ... 00135.html
there is describing:
"Now, what you could try is renaming the dll's. On a healthy system windows should be clever enough to recreate them after you reboot. On the faulty system it should not, BUT, the faulty system should now display the menu without the error but also without any transparencies or filters."

If the files are deleted, there are not reproduced. What can I do, that the menu can display by my friend?

Reading the articles you cited, it seems to me your friend still has a system problem. If I read correctly, a "succeeded" reply from Win when running regsvr32 would indicate the system found a problem and fixed it. If he's still having problems then either Win did not really fix the dlls, or there is something else wrong.

You have not given a URL to your menu so we are not able to look at that.

Also, as to the "javascript1.1" call, that is not necessary. Just "javascript" is fine.

With regsvr32 I can't fix a problem, is'n it? I only register a dll to the system. This dll should registered by visit a site who need this. I can with regsvr32 reregister the dll's (or unregister with -u).

I can severel times enter "regsvr32 dxtrans.dll", everytime there is a succeed-message.

I don't understand technical how the system can self repairing.
If I move the files (on my good working system) from the system directory and make a reboot, the dll's are not installed. If I try regsvr32, there come an errore message like "not found" (it's right, the files are not in the directory).
Wherefrom should the two files coming?

Because that my question 2: How can I solve the problem? Have the friend to installing something?

Both systems are Win98 SE

If I move on my system the two DLLs to another directory, I can't see the menu from milonic ( http://www.milonic.com/ ), but the menu from acponline ( http://www.acponline.org/index.html ) still works.
The acponline-menu is with milonic-source-code, to (I believe). But why this working and on milonic website the menu don't working?

The process is only re-registering the dlls, not 'fixing' them. If, however, they are in some way damaged the system cannot repair them. If that is the case you might want to try copying them from the system CD, or perhaps from your system, since you said you are both running the same version of Win. Make sure they get put back into the correct directory.

This is it, what I mean.

But, can you explain me, why http://www.acponline.org/index.html works fine but http://www.milonic.com/ does not?
It's both milonic source-Code, is'n it?

Yes it is both Milonic source code, but the reason one works and the other doesn't is because of the filters applied to the menus on Andy's site. If you'll notice, Andy's menus are partially transparent and also have drop-shadows...these are created by microsofts built in filters being applied to the menus.
What you're friend needs to do is UNregister the files, DELETE (or move) the files from the directory and then get a fresh working copy of them from either the MS site or from you (since you have a working set of dlls). He should copy them into the directory and REregister them with the OS and see if that fixes the problem. He needs NEW dlls, not to fix the ones he has. If that doesn't work, I would recommend a reinstallation of windows on his machine because that may not be the only thing screwed up...I would also recommend upgrading windows if possible. I'd almost guarantee that'd fix the problem. ;)
