missing _GRAVMON.DLL

If you get the error message "unable to find _gravmon.dll" - it is most likely caused by not following the installation instructions.


If the above solutions do not correct the problem, then read the following usenet articles. They contain the only other solution I have seen to the "unable to find _gravmon.dll" error that happens when trying to run Super Gravity in Windows ME. (But I still think you did not follow the install instructions)

Sure thing Tom,
When I tried to use S/Gravity over Gravity ver 2.5 I got the error 
"could not find _gravmon.dll. After trying several times in 
different ways, I downloaded super gravity ver 2.6 from your site 
again, Then created a new folder on my desktop and unzipped it to 
this folder. At this stage I still got the dll error if I tried to 
run it. So I did a find file search and it came up with the dll 
from ver 2.5, I copied and pasted this in to the folder I had 
unzipped 2.6 to and it ran then with no problems. It shows as ver 
2.60b (build 2032) and so far appears to run well. I hope this 
makes it clearer, I'm still quite a novice at this computer 
lark:-)
