How to fix dbghelp.dll error?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts, I’ve just got a dbghelp.dll error. This is a common problem for regular pc users.

Actually, the warning appears that the dbghelp.dll file isn’t working properly.

Because of this, some of the programs won’t work properly.

An error message appears:


The procedure entry point SymSearchW could not be located in the dynamic link library dbghelp.dll

So, I need some advices for this.
