Can someone help me figure out why I get the error message which bears the words “The procedure entry point get could not be located in the dynamic link library PSAPI.DLL windows 2000”. This has blocked me from accessing any file that I have downloaded in the recent past. I have been unable to correct this situation and I would be grateful if I receive some hints from you.

Hi Hannah,

This dll is a standard component of windows 2000 and xp. Running System File Checker is the first thing you may want to try. It will scan and fix any corrupted system files on the Operating system. Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Right click on the Command Prompt > Choose Run as Administrator on the Security Tab > Click on Command Prompt > Type SFC /Scannow.

Another option you may try to do is to search all instances of PSAPI.dll on your system and see which one is the newest. You can go to the command prompt and type regsvr32 full_path_to_the_most_recent_file.

This DLL error refers to a particular application which you probably installed previously. This kind of DLL error frequently happens when you install an incompatible program on your computer. If you installed a program before, check that program if it is compatible with your computer. Visit the website where you downloaded the program and verify its system requirements. Before installing any program, make sure your computer meets the requirements.

If the program is not compatible with your computer, install the version that matches your system. If this doesn’t work, try using the System File Checker utility to check your system’s protected system files for incorrect versions. Incorrect version often means a corrupt file. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the Run dialog then type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter.

In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. If you are prompted to insert the Windows setup CD or DVD, insert it on your optical drive and continue. This may take awhile to finish so just wait. When it is finished, close the command prompt and restart the computer. See if this works.
