    Try this and if it's wrong maybe you could put a little effort into asking for help. Like explaining the whole problem...

    What ever the newer ,DLL file is named is what you put there.....
    You have obviously gotten a newer version of that particular .DLL so you just copy the newer version...

    Copy..... Paste into directory and your done, no need to type all that into the command prompt, when you can just use Explorer....

    As you don't state your OS I am guessing that it is Win2000 or XP (WINNT)

    I do not see how what you are attempting will work. In your first command line you are renaming a file. In the second, you seem to be trying to overwrite/replace it using its old name?

    .:front2back:. is spot on...................just use Windows Explorer................just rename the old file and drag and drop the new one.

    Depending on how you got the new file, you may need to create a folder and unzip/decompress it first.



    EDIT: Here is a good source of .dlls complete with tutorial

    WINNT\System32 is the footprint of Windows2000. WINNT is used and there is a system32 dir.

    There is one mystery solved, however, I still can't figure out why the hell he is using an XCOPY command line switch with the COPY command. The /r switch is not part of the command line syntax for the COPY command.

    F2B is right. Use explorer because you sure as hell aren't going to get anywhere using bad syntax on the command line.

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>copy /?
    Copies one or more files to another location.
    
    COPY [/D] [/V] [/N] [/Y | /-Y] [/Z] [/A | /B ] source [
         [+ source [/A | /B] [+ ...]] [destination [/A | /B
    
      source       Specifies the file or files to be copied
      /A           Indicates an ASCII text file.
      /B           Indicates a binary file.
      /D           Allow the destination file to be created
      destination  Specifies the directory and/or filename
      /V           Verifies that new files are written corr
      /N           Uses short filename, if available, when
                   non-8dot3 name.
      /Y           Suppresses prompting to confirm you want
                   existing destination file.
      /-Y          Causes prompting to confirm you want to
                   existing destination file.
      /Z           Copies networked files in restartable mo
    
    The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment
    This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.  D
    to prompt on overwrites unless COPY command is being ex
    within a batch script.
    
    To append files, specify a single file for destination,
    for source (using wildcards or file1+file2+file3 format
    Hmmmm, no R switch for COPY.


    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>xcopy /?
    Copies files and directory trees.
    
    XCOPY source [destination] [/A | /M] [/D[:date]] [/P] [
                               [/C] [/I] [/Q] [/F] [/L] [/G
                               [/K] [/N] [/O] [/X] [/Y] [/-
                               [/EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+fil
    
      source       Specifies the file(s) to copy.
      destination  Specifies the location and/or name of ne
      /A           Copies only files with the archive attri
                   doesn't change the attribute.
      /M           Copies only files with the archive attri
                   turns off the archive attribute.
      /D:m-d-y     Copies files changed on or after the spe

      /EXCLUDE:file1[+file2][+file3]...

                   copied, that file will be excluded from
                   example, specifying a string like \obj\
                   all files underneath the directory obj o
                   .obj extension respectively.

      /S           Copies directories and subdirectories ex
      /E           Copies directories and subdirectories, i
                   Same as /S /E. May be used to modify /T.
      /V           Verifies each new file.
      /W           Prompts you to press a key before copyin
      /C           Continues copying even if errors occur.
      /I           If destination does not exist and copyin
                   assumes that destination must be a direc
      /Q           Does not display file names while copyin
      /F           Displays full source and destination fil
      /L           Displays files that would be copied.
      /G           Allows the copying of encrypted files to
                   not support encryption.
      /H           Copies hidden and system files also.
      /R           Overwrites read-only files.
      /T           Creates directory structure, but does no
                   include empty directories or subdirector
                   empty directories and subdirectories.
      /U           Copies only files that already exist in
      /K           Copies attributes. Normal Xcopy will res
      /N           Copies using the generated short names.
      /O           Copies file ownership and ACL informatio
      /X           Copies file audit settings (implies /O).
      /Y           Suppresses prompting to confirm you want
                   existing destination file.
      /-Y          Causes prompting to confirm you want to
                   existing destination file.
      /Z           Copies networked files in restartable mo
    
    The switch /Y may be preset in the COPYCMD environment
    This may be overridden with /-Y on the command line.
    Interesting. There is an R switch with XCOPY.
