The ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll

iertutil.dll is a dynamic link library used by Internet Explorer. Ordinal 120 refers to something inside the dynamic link library. These errors typically occur when the file is corrupt or there is a version mismatch (eg. IE 9 using iertutil.dll from IE 8). A reinstall of IE should fix this problem

Cannot open program , get the following message: Procedure entry point cannot be found V@YAXPAX@Z in dynamic link library msvcrt.dll.


The message you are getting indicates the the copy of msvcrt.dll is not compatable with the program you are running.

By the way msvcrt.dll stands for Microsoft Visual C Runtime Library and is a 'dynamic link library' in case you were wondering.

I would recommend one of the following:

1: Contact the programs publisher and ask them about this issue and what version of this library IS compatible with your program.

2: Find the version of the copy of msvcrt.dll you have by going to C:\windows\system32\
find msvcrt.dll, right click on it and click on the 'Version' tab and write down the version number.

Go online and acquire a newer version of msvcrt.dll and place it in C:\windows\system32\

Hi, i got a eMachines el1200-07w preloaded with vista basic. i'm somewhat new to modding the aero interface (themes, bootscreens,visual styles/msstyles) on vista. Problem?: i was installing a Windows 7...


Regarding on your problem, User32.dll is a Dynamic-link library (DLL) that implements the Windows User API Client Library. It is a core file for several versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system and it is very important in any Windows Operating System. If this file is damaged or deleted, the operating system will not work. Ordinal 2000 is part of the dynamic link library or DLL in USER32.dll it usually refers to the module and code under USER32.dll.
My recommendation: Please check first the installer you have downloaded if it is compatible with your current operating system. Make sure that the program you want to install are supported with your OS to prevent this problem again.

Ordinal 120 could not be located

Redownload IE. Somehow you are missing a .dll. DLL is a file associated with programs that is dynamic in nature, in which the program writes onto it or removes info from it. You can D/L on another PC then install on yours via CD or memory stick - Firefox, or Google Chrome browser then visit the windows family update site and d/l the latest version of IE.

No entry point in Dynamic link library?

My answer is a little complicated, but I think I can explain your problem. It usually means there is a problem with the version of a DLL file. DLL files are a collection of routines different programs can use. The routines are expected to be in a certain order. If a DLL gets changed, the program that uses it may not be able to find the routine it wants because the programs are out of order, or moved internally in some way. Check on the original disk or program directory for that file and look at the date and right-click on it and check the version number. Comare it to what's on the computer now (you can do a find in Windows Explorer to see if there are multiple copies on your computer -- it's possible.) This won't fix anything, but will give you information about what may or may not be different. If the error message gives a full path of where arapi.dll is located, and you have a different version available, copy that one somewhere safe and replace it with the other. Can't guarantee it will work or that it won't break something else because there's a good chance something was installed or removed that changed that file. Check that and leave another message here as to what you found out.
