Windows Defender install GDI error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


With the assistance of a pleasant consultant here at work we’ve discovered the following: What we have finally arrived at is getting the latest edition of gdiplus.dll (as of the framework 2.0 file) from our device, copying this to system32.

Next it permits us to install the program. Before we really ran the program, we copied the gdiplus.dll in the Windows Defender directory.

Then we got it out of system32 (since the guidelines were specific not to keep it there, there was no need to leave it there). That means it works, but I don't suggest anybody who are using GDI screw their devices to do it 🙂 Please help me to know if there is any other user friendly system to do this.

Windows Defender install GDI error


Hey Marissa fabian!

May be i can help you with this problem. What you need to do is just to follow these steps.

1. First of all download SDK Redistributable: GDI+. I am adding a link here for you.

2. Once it installed, now open the Gdiplus_dnld.exe. It will install the SDK Redistributable. Unzip all its file on the desktop by clicking on Browse Button.

3. Now you have to copy the Gdiplus.dll to %systemroot%System32 folder.

4. Click on Start menu and open Run. Type here %systemroot%System32 folder and click on Ok button

5. A new folder will open. Paste here the file Gdiplus.dll which you have copied from your desktop.

6. Now again run the setup of Windows defender. This time you will install it successfully.
