      Description

      Build : 'R'
      OS : all of Win32

      Rather dangerous situation in that the required file: MSVCRT.dll count isn't updated so by chance if the count was dec by uninstalling another app could make Java useless by dec the MSVCRT count to 0.

      Couple of other notes:
         1. ActPanel.dll count is updated but updated with a wrong count. It's inc twice rather than expected once.
         2. Under specific circumstances of which I am trying to duplicate is after an installation and if the installer requires to reboot 95/98 only. Windows could fail to boot with an error message in the beginning stating it couldn't updated a file.

      Below is a matrix done to discover exact what the count is:
      Cricket 'R'

      Shared DLL count failing.
         
         PRE-INSTALL COUNT:
                    95 98 NT
         ActPanel 0 0 0
         MSVCRT 2 5 0 <-these count due to other apps.
         
         
         INSTALLED COUNT:
                    95 98 NT
         ActPanel 1 2 2 <-note the erroneous 2 under 98/NT, should be 1
         MSVCRT 2 5 0 <-note MSVCRT count did not increase.
        
         
         POST-UNINSTALL COUNT:
                    95 98 NT
         ActPanel 0 1 1 <-note under 98/NT should be 0 but dec from 2 -> 1
         MSVCRT 2 5 0 <-note no change for MSVCRT count.
