Error comes out when trying to run programs on Windows


Hi there Phillipus

There are different ways that oledlg.dll errors can show up on your computer, in your case the error message showed up because the application you're trying to open cannot find the oledlg.dll. 

To make things short, here are some solutions that I can provide on how to fix this problem.

  • Try to reinstall the program, game or application that uses oledlg.dll. This is the best solution.
  • Install any Windows Update, some service packs replace or update some Hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer.
  • Check the Recycle Bin if it was accidentally removed or deleted. If found, right click on oledlg.dll then click on Restore.

If any of this didn't work, let me know.

Hi Philipus,

the following steps may help:

  • Disk Cleanup this may help with certain System32 errors. To access disk cleanup, use the following click path:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and choose Disk Cleanup.

  • Try running the program that's giving you a System32 error message in "Compatibility mode". Occasionally, running an older program (pre-Windows 2000 Pro or XP) can return System32 errors of different kinds.

To run a program in compatibility mode, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Program Compatibility Wizard Follow the easy guide steps to run the application like an older version of Windows. This may resolve the System32 errors when you're trying to run a specific program.
