My WINTAB32.dll is missing

by ACC1389 / October 5, 2005 11:38 AM PDT

I don't know if this question belongs in this forum, I'm hoping somebody has an answer because I'm totally lost. Question: While trying to reinstall Photoshop CS2 on my Windows XP home, I would get the following message when I try to open Photoshop CS 2 up " This application has failed to start because WINTAB32.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem". I tried reinstalling CS 2 twice and received the same message. Would anybody know how I can fix this problem?
Thank you
