The program can’t start because STLog.dIl is missing

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

When my Windows 7 (x86) is starting I have this error message box appears. I don’t know what error I should reinstall to fix this error, nothing happens when I click OK but I am a little bit worried. Does anyone have any idea how can I solve this error? Is something wrong with my Windows 7?

Thank you!

STService.exe – System Error

The program can’t start because STLog.dIl is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

The missing DLL file “STLog.dll” is a module included in the program Dell DataSafe Local Backup. If you have this program on your computer then I am positive that you also have this file, maybe not now, when it was first installed. It is possible that during the past days you used a registry cleaner that possibly and accidentally deleted the registry entry for “STService.exe”.

The easiest way to restore the file is to reinstall Dell DataSafe Local Backup. To learn how to get it, visit Dell DataSafe Local Backup to automatically check if your computer is qualified to run it. It doesn’t support Windows XP though. It can only be used on Windows Vista and Windows 7 but you need to have first the Dell DataSafe Local Backup Basic.

If your computer is qualified, download and install it. This will restore the missing DLL file. But in case you can’t install Dell DataSafe Local Backup, here’s a little work around. Open Windows Explorer and navigate to “C:Program FilesDell DataSafe Local Backup”. Copy all the files in that folder and place them in “C:Program FilesDell DataSafe Local Backupcomponentsscheduler” because this is the location where “STService.exe” is stored. It should work after this.
