Preferred Solution: Unable to locate DLL

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Unable to locate DLL

Do you still have the installation CD that you used to install the OS. If so I would try either doing a repair install of the OS by booting to the CD or go to the recovery console by booting to the cd and run a chkdsk /r and see if it can find and repair any bad sectors of the drive that may have been point to the DLL location.

I am getting this error message "ypager.exe - unable to locate dll"

The detail is as follow:

'The dynamic link library YImage.dll could not be found in the spcified path C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger;.;C:\WINNT\system32;C:\WINNT\system;C:\WINNT;.;Y:..'

I had uninstalled yahoo messenger a day ago and then I have been getting it when I reboot the pc.

How do I stop it from giving this message?

Is there a file where I go and remove the info manually?

A:ypager.exe - unable to locate dll help!!!!!

Hiyas

Looks like you're using either WinNT or Win2000, so Msconfig is out of the question. Looks like Regedit is the only other option unless you have something like TweakUI loaded.

Click Start -> Run -> Type Regedit -> Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Open the Software key -> Scroll down to Microsoft and open it -> Windows -> Current version -> Run. Check what's starting in the Run key, look for your ypager and delete the reg value. That should sort it out hopefully.

Good luck

A:Unable to Locate Component

Your first move should be to turn on Windows Update and get your system updated. You are still on SP2 which is no longer supported by Microsoft, the Windows Update will get you up to SP3. That alone may cure the problem.

Follow this guide to slipstream your copy of XP with SP3, that can then be used to run the System File Checker which will replace any missing or damaged files.

http://www.helpwithwindows.com/WindowsXP/Slipstreaming_Windows_XP_Service_Pack_3.html

To run the system file checker Click on Start and type sfc /scannow (exactly as written here with the gap) into the search box and hit enter. Follow the prompts and insert the slipstreamed disc when requested.

I was browsing the net the other day and window popped up saying that AVG had detected a virus in C:/Documents and Settings and that a scan should be run to get rid of it. I shut down all of my programs and ran the anti-virus to search in C:/Documents and Settings. It came up empty. I then checked for updates, found one, and then restarted AVG and had it scan the whole C drive while I did some housework and showered. Coming back to the computer about an hour later I saw that AVG had "Encountered an unknown error and had to be terminated". Ok I thought, so I restarted the computer and ran AVG again and let it run while doing my homework. Again, it crashed!

Is there something wrong with my virus scan and what else can I do? I will post a HJT log asap.

A:Unable To Locate Component Notification

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. ? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.? Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the ... Read more

Good Day Friends,

I have an application installed on a Windows 7 machine at office. The application installs VS 2008 Redistributable files during its installations. The installation works fine.

On the launch, the application crashes. On reviewing the Event Viewer, I can see "MFC90U.dll" listed under one of the "Data" tags.

I tried copying all the MS 2008 related files and manifests to the local directory. This also didn't work.

There are other products on the machine which are supposedly using earlier versions on VS Redistributable files. These applications work fine.

Is there any chance that the co-existence of the multiple versions of the VS Redistributable files is causing any issues?

Is there any way of specifying manifests in the local directory for the missing DLLs so that application can locate them?

Please advice. I am stuck on it for 3 days now.

Thanks & Regards!
Pankaj Dwivedi.

A:Application is unable to locate MFC90U.dll and others

Before doing anything else I would reinstall or repair install (if the app supports it)
The application that is the source of the error.
You may want to run the setup or installer file as an admin and temporarily disabling UAC for the duration of the repair/reinstall.

It sounds like the file simply didn't write.

You can also try installing the latest visual C++ library and see if that resolves your problem.

When I go to C:\Documents and Settings\ I am unable to find the 'User' folder and so cannot goto (or see) the other folders where this file has been saved. The only folder I can see in Documents and Settings is 'All Users'

If any one of you can help I would be most appriciated.

Cheers,

C h r e d g e.
 

A:Unable to locate downloaded file

I'm guessing the folder is hidden, in explorer tried going to 'tools - folder options - View (tab) - and click show hidden files and folders'

You should be able to get there now.

explorer.exe - Unable to locate component
This application has failed to start because Microsoft-Windows-System-Debug-L1-1-0.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

A:explorer.exe - Unable to locate component

well you may know that the start menu etc uses explorer.exe to run

i would say you need to run sfc /scannow

Hello,
 
I have been struggling for a week trying to get my father in laws laptop working again. It is on Vista, 64bit. Upon start up it gets the following error. logonui.exe unable to locate component  Winmm.dll is missing. When I click OK it continues to boot but it can't authenticate anyone so a lot of programs won't start. It boots into safe mode with no apparent errors. I tried copying a Winmm.dll and re-registering it but that failed. Here is the log from Hijack this. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

A:logonui.exe unable to locate component

I'll add more information on the problem and what I have tried so far. 
This computer has had the problem of looping on updates for months now. It would get updates but after restart, while it was trying to configure them it would say download failed and revert everything. I spent days on that trying to uninstall updates and reinstall them. I got it to where it had all but 2 updates and couldn't get any further. My father in law didn't want to have to reinstall all of his programs so he opted to put it off for a while to see if I came up with a fix. In the meantime, more updates tried to come in and failed. Also it looks like they installed office 2007. That may have been when this new problem started. They also installed adobe flash the same day.  
 
This is what I have tried, in order.
 
1. Last known good configuration, nothing.
 
2. Malwarebytes
That found several things but nothing that looked too bad and removing them didn't help. 
 
3. Startup Repair from Install disk (said found no problems)
 
4. System from Install Disk
I thought this one was going to work. There were lots of restore points. I picked one just before they installed office. It ran for a while then said the restore point was no good and reverted. No problem, I could just pick another. Nope. When I went back to restore all the previous restore points were just gone. 
 
5. Clean boot
 
6. SFC /Scannow 
Found some errors. Said it couldn't fix them... Read more

I have tried installing installshield, winzip, and demoshield. Still no worky.
I switched OS's (from xp pro to xp64 pro beta). Still no worky.
I have tried running the setup.exe on the cd but it brings up the
"Setup.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close window"
I have searched everywhere for a fix. It dosent tell me which .dll is missing so have no idea where to begin.
Thanks for your help.

I get the above message plus:

"this application has failed to start because SHLWAPI.dll was not found. re-installing the application may fix this problem"

everytime we start up my friends laptop, the computer then restarts and whatever mode i try to start it in (safe mode etc) that message still comes up and the computer reboots.

This started happening after i uninstalled windows service pack 2 because it was saying that the pack had not installed properly.

is there any way of saving the PC without wiping everything off, and if not how do i format it without any windows disk as my friend has mislaid all the CDs his laptop came with.

cheers

I hope the following is enough info. If not, just let me know and I'll get whatever else is needed:
Windows Vista Home, SP2
HP, AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core
Memory, 6GB
System Type, 64-bit
Monitor, Samsung 2033SW
NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS
Running in Mozilla

So, a couple of weeks ago I was having troubles w/my graphics card and I replaced it with the above-referenced. Everything was fine until today, I was reviewing some pictures and the system shut down. When it rebooted, it (windows) said that I needed to download a new driver for the NVIDIA. I went to their site and downloaded the correct driver, however, I couldn't FIND it to run it. Instead I went to "Device Manager" and downloaded it from there. After reviewing the properties, somehow it downloaded 32 bit pieces instead of 64. I don't know if that is a problem, but wanted to throw it out there.

So then I noticed that my Samsung Monitor was not displayed as the "Display" (instead, it read "Generic PnP Monitor"). I went to their website and downloaded the driver for that too, but I can't FIND it either.

Since I am using Mozilla, all of my downloads go to my "Downloads" folder, but these two items are not there (no matter how many times I search, or re-download).

Off the topic a bit, I think I should get yet another graphics card b/c my computer is a bit grainy. Any suggestions?

Oh yea! I can't even play Spider Solitaire now! Help help help.

Receiving this error message at startup:
"mimboot.exe - Unable to locate component
This application has failed to start because CoreDll.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

OS: WinXP SP2 Home Ed.

I have searched for the mimeboot.exe file, found it in Windows\Prefetch & MusicMatch. Searched for the missing CoreDll.dll file and only found it in MusicMatch. I don't have a clue as to what application this missing file is suppose to belong to so it can be fixed.

I did have a previous error problem prior to this one (Proxy Error), fixed it and now I get this message at startup. I also used Registery Mechanic two days ago and after doing so is when I got the Proxy Error.

I'm running Windows XP - Media Center Edition on Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.2GHz, 1.5G RAM

Earlier, Norton 360 detected and blocked several intrusion attempts, but stated that everything was secure.

Shortly thereafter, EVERY program that attempted to open would generate the following pop-up message, "[program name] UNABLE TO LOCATE COMPONENT - The application has failed to start because msefrms.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I click OK to acknowledge this message, only to have it reappear. After several "OK clicks", however, the program usually opens and functions properly.

I restarted my PC to get into safe mode to run a virus scan, but the message appears upon Windows boot (even on winlogon, services, lsass, etc.). Again, a few clicks of OK gets me past the message and into Windows.

I haven't been able to find ANY reference to msefrms.dll on the web. I was requested to post my HJT log - any help is greatly appreciated!

For almost every file I have on my computer, I get an error message that often doesn't let me access the file.

For example:

It says...
rundll32.exe - Unable to Locate Component
This application failed to start because netbmrgxkmb.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

The problem is that this happens with every application I try to open. Some still work, but many do not (like Firefox, Time/date on my computer, System Restore, etc)

I have searched everywhere online for this file but cannot seem to find it.

Please help.

Hi, Help required please. I have an Acer 8930g running Windows Vista Home Premium.
Which when I switch it on and after logging in I get a message "SLUI.exe - Unable to Locate Component. This application has failed to start because urlmon.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
The machine then displays "Preparing your Desktop".
Next the computer displays "Microsoft Windows. Windows Activation Client has stopped working - A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available".
Upon clicking "Close Program" the computer goes back to the loin prompt.

If I try "Safe Mode" after logging in and seeing "Preparing your Desktop" the computer displays "Help and Support was not able to start" followed by a message at the bottom of the screen "i Your user profile was not loaded correctly! You have been logged on with a temporary profile. Changes you make to this profile will be lost when you log off. Please see the event log for details or contact your administrator"
When I look for "Restore Points" there is only one for today. I presume this is because the computer does not recognise my login.

Any ideas please.

Thanks

I have an external hard drive holding 465 GB and Have used up 100 GB on it mostly with pictures. Precious Precious Pictures. When I try to plug it in one time weird things happen. I can read the hard drive and it says 100Gb is used up but I can only see the first files and there's nothing inside them! Sometimes there are somethings inside sometimes nothing and I can't paste or cut anything into it. When I try to make a new folder or anything It says unable to locate <%3 NULL:OpText>. HEEEELP MEEEE all my precious pictures are in there and I'm a 12 year old who hasn't taken precautions to backup the files. I tried googling it but all I got was use a different pc, ubuntu, Update usb ports and it has the click of death and nothing can be done about it (which I doubt because Some files just pop up at random whenever I plug it in at various times. . I think the files are still in there since it still shows 100 Gb in use but they don't show most of the time. Do I need to have a new usb connector? sometimes the light that shows it's connected switches off. Enough details? HEEEEELP!

Have you at any point of the HDD's life just pulled out the USB without going to the menu to safety remove the hardware,
I did the same this where i lost all files on my memory stick of which had my school work ect on it "not happy"

Have you run Norton ghost to see if it can find the corrupt files and recover them?

Once i did this i found that most files i could get back but some were corrupt and couldnt be recovered

Try to defrag the disk aswell

Try norton ghost and post back what happens
