Hi all,

I tried to uninstall Nokia PC Suite and do a clean install of version 6.8.

After multiple re-boot I downloaded and tried to install version 6.8 but I got the same error message.

Here is a picture to better describe my problem.

GetConnected.exe – Unable To Locate Component

This application has failed to start because ConnAPI.DLL was not found  Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

OK

Advise please.

Bert,

I noticed that it's a common problem for applications to miss important windows .DLL files due to faulty coding or on end user's account.  I will help you fix that problem, in no time. To do a full clean install of any application , it's advised to use a third party application, that will delete the cache of the application recently uninstalled. This prevents saved data from the original application from corrupting further installs. In this scenario it looks like that is what just happened.

Download Ccleaner :

(This program serves just to missing applications or to an advance cleaner that will literally wipe out loose data; caches)

Once the application is installed run both the cleaner follow by the registry. (~5 minutes depending on your computer's hardware)

Other Option <— More Advance

If problem still persists use this method.

1) Download the ConnAPI.DLL @ http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?connapi

2) Place the .DLL file into you "C:WindowsSystem32"

3) Reboot, Install the latest version of Nokia PC Suite.

4) Pop out a glass of wine and enjoy.

Thanks,

Samuel Patterson

Make sure that when you uninstall the Nokia PC Suite, you also remove all the files and shortcuts attached to it. You have to check your Local Disc C:,

  • Go to Pror computer.
  • gram Files and look for a file or folder connected to that, delete it also. Restart your computer.
  • Try this: Remove the NOKIAManager.mox file.
  • Exit Photoshop Elements
  • Open C:Program FilesAdobePhotoshop Elements 6.0moxplugins folder
  • Move the above-mentioned file to the Recycle Bin or to your Desktop
  • Restart you

OR

Install or reinstall the Nokia PC Suite software.

  • Start  -> Programs -> Nokia PC Suite -> Uninstall Nokia PC Suite -> Check Currently Installed Programs in Control Panel if the program is still there, remove it from there also -> Go to Local Disk C: Program and Files, remove files connected to it -> Repair -> Restart your computer.

Hi Bert,

A number of reasons may be contributing to the error you are getting while trying to install the application.  This includes: connapi.dll or related files are corrupt, hardware failure, presence of Trojans/viruses or registry problem.

One of the major causes of this error is a corrupted registry that is caused by faulty installation and reinstallation of software.

To fix this you need to run a dll repair, on you machine to remove invalid registry entries.  You can download this tool from : DLL Repair tool ;

Scan your computer with an Antivirus program ;

If the two solutions don't fix the problem, you need to remove NokiaManage.mox from Photoshop elements.  This is the file used by Photo Shop photo download feature, to download files from a Nokia Phone.

If you don't use this feature, you can safely remove this file by deleting from C:Program FilesAdobePhotoshop Elements 6.0moxplugins folder.

Regards

Moses

Connapi.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the connapi DLL file. In some cases, connapi.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or Malware issue or even a hardware failure.

How to Fix Connapi.dll Errors

Important: Do not download the DLL file in aa DLL website. As they may also come with Malware that can further harm your computer. Since you would need to reinstall the DLL file, install it using the original source.

Note: You would need to start Windows in a safe mode if Windows could not be opened normally due to the connapi.dll error.

You may try restoring connapi.dll from the Recycle Bin. One of the possible cause of a "missing" connapi.dll file is that you've accidentally removed it. If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted connapi.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover connapi.dll with a free file recovery program.

Important: If your application had worked before you deleted it, recovering a deleted copy of connapi.dll with a file recovery program would be good.

Scan your entire system for Malware / Spyware. Some connapi.dll errors could be related to a virus or other Malware infection on your computer, that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the connapi.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.

Hi Paul,

Hope you are doing well.

You may try the following steps.  Please Uninstall Nokia PC Suite, Nokia Connectivity Cable driver, PC Connectivity solution. 

Then run the Nokia PC Suite cleaner (application from Nokia too).

After doing so please re install your Nokia PC Suite 7.1 (or whatever is the latest version) from Nokia.com/pcsuite. After reinstalling reboot your computer ; then try to connect your phone to your computer again.  This should solve your issue.

Hope this short solution resolves the error that you are getting, whenever you try to have this application reinstalled.
