After installing ArcInfo 8.0.2 Patch 1, ArcEdit and ArcPlot will not start and the following error message is returned:

"Procedure entry point disable_rqu could not be located in the dynamic link library aifeat.dll"


Patch 1 installs the aifeat.dll in the directory arcexe80\lib. The above error message is returned if an earlier version of the aifeat.dll is in the arcexe80\bin directory.
