Is the program a Windows95 program?  That is the only version that 
should be written to use riched32 calls.  However, you can copy the 
riched32.dll file from your Windows partition to the program directory.

This is not recommended as we implement richedit calls differently than 
does any version of Windows (there are legal reasons to do this.)   You 
can set the default to be native, built-in through the libraries tab for 
the default installation and then put these files in the program 
directories.  BTW, Office 2003/2007 do come with their own versions of 
richedit and they are installed in the program installation directories 
for those programs.
