Use IconsExtract from NirSoft. It scans a folder you select and can list any icons and files which contain icons.

It's used when registering COM components (one type of DLL) that various applications require. By registering a DLL, you are adding information to a central directory (the Registry) for use by Windows. The information typically includes a "friendly name" for the component, which makes it easier to use from within another program, and the full path to the ...

I ran into this issue, too. Alexey Ivanov's response didn't quite help me, but it did, however, inspire me to investigate C:\Users\x\AppData\Local\Temp. As usual, error messages were only half-useful. In my case, the DLL wasn't missing--the installer didn't have permissions to access the folder. I didn't try running the installer as an administrator--this ...

A DLL file is not by it self executable, though it may contain executable code. A DLL (Dynamic-Link Library) contains code, data, resources etc. usable by other programs. You need an EXE file for the operating system to execute code within DLL files, like "RUNDLL.EXE" or "RUNDLL32.exe" in windows.

Dependency Walker can do this. Or on a running application, Process Explorer can list the DLLs with CtrlD.

DLLs are dynamic-link libraries: Dynamic-link library, or DLL, is Microsoft's implementation of the shared library concept in the Microsoft Windows and OS/2 operating systems. These libraries usually have the file extension DLL, OCX (for libraries containing ActiveX controls), or DRV (for legacy system drivers). See Dynamic-link library ...

You will be missing a dll on which the one you're trying to register is dependent. You can use Dependency Walker to check this.

This DLL is part of the Wise Installer as far as I know. Some programs aren't particularly good about removing the temporary files they create; it's really nothing to worry about. And by the way, you should install some antivirus software; you never think you need it until you get bit :)

msvcr71.dll is Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library for Visual C++ .NET 2003. It comes as part of .NET Framework 1.1.

A simple workaround is to run the command shell as administrator (just search cmd.exe and then right click-> run as administrator), and then go to location of the MSI package and run msiexec /i packagename.msi. It worked for me.

Looks like update KB3004394 is bugged in Windows 7 (fine in Windows 8): https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/13677 https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=65056 https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_update/windows-update-kb3004394-issues/ace25277-7f65-4486-bc44-c1b106907a18 You can temporarily work around this by ...

This was a malware. It was removed by your AntiVirus Scanner, but the registry entries are still present to start the malware at startup. Start regedit.exe and search (F3 or CTRL+F) for BackgroundContainer.dll and delete all entries you find.

Either re-install the program (the program with the missing .dll) or copy the individual .dll into the appropriate folder from another source (if for example a friend/colleague also has the program).

I'd check the date it was placed on the system and compare that with other files in the system to get clues. Search should allow you to search the entire system by date. Also, posting the name of the file here would allow some here who may be familiar with it to ID it for you.

Yes, EncodePointer was introduced in Windows XP service pack 2, so it is very likely that the reason the software is not working is that you do not have this installed. However, this doesn't mean you need to hook the computer to the internet. Instead, use another computer to download service pack 3 and put it on CD or USB stick. Copy it to the hard disk ...

According to the Wikipedia article a DLL is an executable file. In computing, an executable file causes a computer "to perform indicated tasks according to encoded instructions," as opposed to a data file that must be parsed by a program to be meaningful. Taking this definition a DLL is an executable because it contains encoded instructions to perform ...

It would seem that your program is 32-bit, but didn't install its needed 32-bit libraries on your 64-bit OS. MSVCP100.dll, is part of the Microsoft Visual C++ runtime libraries, so ensure you install the 32-bit versions of those C++ runtime libraries. You can get them from Microsoft here: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) You may ...

To register a dll, you open a command box as admin and then use regsvr32 /i <dll_name>. Tha said, your problem seems to be that you just can't copy the file. Again, open a command box as admin and do the following: ren c:\windows\system32\filename.dll c:\windows\system32\filename.old copy c:\randomlocation\filename.dll ...

Here is the full usage of regsvr32.

The main (only?) problem is compatibility between different versions of Msvcr71.dll. Let's say 7.10.0 is slightly incompatible with 7.10.1 and an application App1 depends on the old behavior and an application App2 depends on the new behavior. Additionally both applications do not ship this C++ runtime itself. In this case one of the two applications will ...

"More Information" in the article you linked to says placing the CRT in system32 "may cause problems when you run applications that are linked to a different version of the CRT on computers that do not have the correct versions of the CRT DLL installed." For example, let's say App1 requires version 2.1 of Msvcr71.dll for its SpinMyRainbowPinWheel function ...

Yep, its just like chrisF said, Here is a KB article from microsoft explaining it as well and Here is a KB article explaining what a DLL is. Think of them as library files for programs on your computer. They hold instructions on how to do different things for different programs.

The correct course of action here is, as you say, not to go downloading random dll files from all of the internet but instead work out just which Visual C++ Runtime your program is expecting and install that. Chances are if it is Explorer that is complaining then it is because a new shell extension or related program is trying to work through it. You can ...
