Error Loading Python DLL on Windows 7

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am running Windows 7 32-bit PC and I am getting a Fatal Error on opening certain game. This game used to run before this error but now, I can no longer open it. The error is stating:

Fatal Error!

Error loading Phyton DLL:

C:UsersAlfieAppDataLocalTemp_MEI44202python27.dll (error code 126).


I'm not sure where it came from but I would be glad if someone can send me the steps on resolving this. Thanks!

Error Loading Python DLL on Windows 7


This just means that the game you are trying to launch was unable to find the python installation. So in order to continue without issues, you need to install python first. Also, if you look on the path included in the error message, it appears that it is loading from the Temp directory. So I would suggest that you clear your Temp folder. And this happened may be because of some malware. Try to perform a complete scan on your system as well. Also, you may need to change the permissions on the Temp folder. To do this, follow the steps below:

1. Launch Windows Explorer and paste the following: %USERPROFILE%AppDataLocal.

2. Right-click on the Temp folder and click on Properties then go to Security and Advanced.

3. Click the Change Permissions button and remove the entire permissions.

4. Add the inheritable permissions from this object's parent or just simply enable the inheritance button Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object.

Click OK and Continue. This way, your System, Admin and you will have access on the Temp folder.
