Locked

GDIPLUS.DLL

By prue_fish ·
WHEN TRYING TO RUN SEVERAL OF THE PROGRAMS ON MY PC INCLUDING INSTALLATION OF WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER, PINNACLE STUDIO, AND MANY OTHERS---- MESSAGE APPEARS "THE APPLICATION HAS FAILED TO START BECAUSE GDIPLUS.DLL WAS NOT FOUND. REINSTALLING THE APPLICATION MAY FIX THIS PROBLEM." I KNOW THAT GDIPLUS.DLL IS ON MY SYSTEM. HOW DO I FIX THIS PROBLEM?

Make sure the file is in your system32 directory. If it is, perhaps it is corrupt. Try http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/gdicpp/GDIPlus/GDIPlus.asp and download a new one; extract it to system32. Similar posts show that this has been effective in solving your problem. Hope this helps.

download it here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=a13b7a21-463c-4286-ad68-e692417e80e2&DisplayLang=en

copy it to your windows\system32 directory

in case the file is locked and you can't copy it, boot into safe mode, then copy it...

Microsoft also suggests that you do a search for the file and replace any older version with the newest version... Microsoft recommends the programs install that file in the application folder, but what they don't tell you is that sometimes install programs need that file and they can only get it from the path, in most cases that should be win folder\system32

I know the same thing happened to me !!!

This is how I fixed it !!!
