      Xenu 1.3.8 is used to check a local disk which has htm-driven documentation that is distributed via CDs. No problems with W2K but when Xenu opens index.htm under XP SP3 it completes almost immediately and every file is reported as an Orphan.

      The behavior has has not been a problem because it was easy to KVM to a W2K machine and run Xenu there. That convenience is about to end, so am now faced with making Xenu functional under XP SP3.

      Apart from the OS, the primary difference between the two machines is the level of Explorer being run and the versions of WININET.DLL (the starred dll is in /SYSTEM32). I do not know the version numbers of the DLLs, but can list the dates and size from a DIR.

      W2K is Explorer 6 and has two versions in 3 directories:

        06/19/2003  12:05p             466,704 wininet.dll
      * 08/29/2002  07:14a             585,728 wininet.dll

      XP is Explorer 8 and several versions in 13 directories.

        03/08/2009  12:34 AM           914,944
        05/06/2010  02:36 AM           919,040
        09/09/2010  09:57 PM           919,552
      * 09/09/2010  09:58 PM           916,480

      If the problem is WININET.DLL, which version/date is needed to run Xenu on XP and how can it be replaced?

      I've tried delete/replace the 9/9/2010 dll with an earlier version but XP reinstates 9/9/2010 .

      If not WININET, what else could be a cause?
