Error about DLL file in windows vista


DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library. It is use on some programs for dependency wherein it helps in modularization of the code making the program to run faster and use less disk space. The problem with DLL occurs when another program overwrites the dependency breaking it thus making the original one to have a .dll error. In your case wherein the error you got indicated the “REGSVR32 WavDest.dll” message wherein it is trying to register the DLL however, it does not have the adequate permission to do so.

To have this issue resolve, you need to run or spawn the REGSVR32 WavDest.dll from an elevated command as an administrator. To do this, type “cmd” on the START button and press the CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. Accept its UAC prompt then it will say “Administrator” on the title bar. If there are corrupted files on your system, you will have to reinstall your Operating System to make the REGSVR32 WavDest.dll work.
