Try these steps and see if which ones works:

1. Reinstall the program buy removing first the old program. And then run the installer again and just follow the installation process. Test and see if it fix the problems.

2. If the same problem still occurs, try formatting your operating system because there maybe viruses conflicting with the programs that you have.

3. You can also try a different program that does the same thing.

Note: All of this steps can be use, but make sure to do the first one and if it doesn't work. Make your way on using the second and then the third.

Hi Jasminetrias,

This type of problem generally occurs in .dll file missing or corruption.

Corruption may occur in:

1. Bad installation of a program.

2. Secondary storage like hard disk problem.

3. Overwriting of .dll when a new program going to being install.

4. Deletion of .dll file when a program being uninstall.

Any many more causes.

There are two solutions to that problem what you posted.

1. Paste/replace the missing .dll:
