Be useful piece of “functionality” right? To fix: If you are using 32-bit Internet Explorer, copy shell32.dll and shlwapi.dll from the capture machine to the %SystemSystem% folder in the Internet Explorer project. If you are using 64-bit Internet Explorer, copy shell32.dll and shlwapi.dll from the capture machine to the %SystemSystem(x64)%folder in the Internet Explorer project.
