No, but Windows is that flaky.  Another program probably installed a
conflicting (or just plain old) version of zlib.dll.  If SWISH-E wasn't
running but zlib.dll was in use then that's probably the case.

You could copy SWISH-E's zlib.dll to your installation directory (e.g.
c:\program files\swish-e) to sometimes avoid that issue in the future.=20
But the ActiveX control may still break and it won't help if you run
another program that loads the system-wide zlib.dll first.
