Corrupted files[edit | edit source]

The user32.dll, userenv.dll, and oembios.bin files are corrupted, either replace these files in the installation media with the ones from build 2498 or after TXT setup, boot to a boot disk and copy these files from build 2498 onto C:\WINDOWS\System32. Alternatively, you can upgrade from build 2498 and choose to skip said files when upgrading.
