  • Odd Program Run Error (Missing Dll)


    I am getting the following error whenever I run a program on my Windows Server 2012 box:

    "The program can't start because .DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

    So I tried that and got the same error. I tried running IE and that failed (it would run, wait a bit then just close). I have tried running quite a few other programs and they simply display the same error message leading me to conclude that the issue isn't Firefox but deeper than that.

    I can't run uninstall a program, no idea why.

    Fortunately the server IS still working as my domain and internet access ... I can't explain that either.

    Any ideas?

    What DLL is it asking for? Have you searched the HDD to see if it is there? When you installed the program, did you right click and Run as administrator or did you just double left click it?

      Did you register the DLL?
