It is hard to believe but a lot of users have the same complaint that after installing a Windows update they are unable to open anything on their computer. It is hard to find a solution to this problem on the internet.

The error clearly states the name of the missing file. This means that this file is either missing or is corrupted. The most straightforward solution to this problem is that you find the said dll file and download it and place it in the systems folder. I cannot, however, provide you with work for all solution because such a solution, unfortunately, does not exist as off now.

Try using the System Update Readiness Tool since the problem started after installing a Windows Update. Download the System Update Readiness Tool. This download is for 64-bit Microsoft Windows 7. If you have a different operating system or different platform architecture, go to Fix Windows Update Errors using DISM for a complete list of operating systems.

Download the program specific to your operating system and run it. If this doesn’t work, try using the System File Checker utility. Press the Windows key + R to bring up the “Run” dialog then type the following command and then hit Enter:

sfc /scannow

Insert your Windows installation CD or DVD when you are prompted then continue. Wait until it is complete. When it is finished, restart the computer. If the problem continues, try doing an in-place upgrade. Insert your Windows installation CD or DVD on your optical drive then click “Install Now” on the setup window.

Next, click “Go online to obtain the latest updates for installation (recommended)” then enter your CD key when you are prompted. In the “Install Windows” page, select the operating system you want to perform an in-place upgrade. Click “Yes” to accept the Microsoft Software License Terms. On the “Which type of installation do you want?” screen, select “Upgrade”.

Wait until the upgrade is finished. When the installation is complete, restart the computer.
