Fix missing .dll file message.


Have you ever gotten a message on your computer saying that you are missing a dll file? I have gotten many of these messages and though a lot of people don't know it, it's one of the easiest problems to fix. dll files are basically how a program talks to the computer to tell it that it needs something. It may be something like it needs to print something. Without these dll files your program may be completely worthless. I did't do anything. How did my file go missing? This is a good question and there a lot of ways a dll file can go missing. You may have a virus on your computer that deleted it. It may have gotten corrupted some how and is unusable. The good and bad thing about dll files is they can be used by more than one program. It's bad because it may mess more than one of your programs up if it goes missing but its good because they are more widely available. Now, how do I get my dll file back. here is where it gets so easy. There are so many sites on the internet that offer dll files for download. My favorite happens to be dll-files.com but a quick Google search will reveal many more. All you have to do is go to this site and copy or type your missing dll file into the search bar. When the results return just go through the few steps to download it. After you've downloaded it you may need to extract it. If so you will need a program like winzip or winrar. Just right click on the file and select extract here. When you have just the dll file the only thing left to do is place it in the location that the message says its missing from. All done now you can enjoy your programs working the way you want them to.

Cannot install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows...


ISSUE- You cannot install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows Vista
OVERVIEW-
When you try to install a device driver by using its installation program in Windows Vista, you are unsuccessful.
SYMPTOMS:
You may experience this issue if the following conditions are true:
• The driver uses an executable file-based installation program.
• The installation program was not designed for Windows Vista.
CAUSES:
Problems with executable file-based installation programs may occur if any one or more of the following conditions are true:
• The installation program is incompatible with Windows Vista.
• The driver is incompatible with Windows Vista.
• An issue occurs that is related to the user rights that are required to install the driver.
RESOLUTION:
To resolve this problem, run the driver installation program in compatibility mode. Or, use an account that has administrative credentials to run the driver installation program. You can also locate the .inf file for the driver, and then manually install the driver.
Important Before you use one of these methods, we recommend that you contact the device manufacturer or the driver manufacturer for more information about how to install the driver in Windows Vista.
To run the driver installation program in compatibility mode
Configure the driver installation program to run in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 compatibility mode. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Locate the executable file for the driver installation program.
2. Right-click the file and then click Properties.
3. In the PackageName Properties dialog box, click the Compatibility tab.
4. Click to select the Run this program in compatibility mode for check box, click Windows XP (Service Pack 2) in the Run this program in compatibility mode for list, and then click OK.
5. Double-click the executable file to start the installation program.
To run the driver installation program by using administrative credentials
Configure the driver installation program to run in the context of the Administrator account. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Locate the executable file for the driver installation program.
2. Right-click the file, and then click Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
3. Follow the steps to install the driver.
To locate the .inf file and manually install the driver
Use Device Manager to install the driver. To do this, follow these steps.
Step 1: Locate the .inf file
Locate the .inf file that is included with the driver installation program. Generally, the .inf file is located in one of the following folders on the driver installation media:
• In the same folder as the Setup program.
• In a subfolder that is in the folder that contains the Setup program. Generally, the subfolder has a name such as Windows XP, Drivers, or WinXP.
If the driver files are packaged in a single executable file, you may be able to extract them or otherwise access them. To do this, use one of the following methods, as appropriate for your situation:
• Use a file compression program to extract the files.
If the driver files are packaged in a single executable file, you may be able to use a file compression tool such as WinZip or WinRAR to extract the contents of the driver package to a folder. The .inf file should be among the files that you extract.
• Use the Windows Compressed Folders feature to extract the files.
If you do not have the WinZip program or the WinRAR program, you may be able to extract the files by using the Windows Compressed Folders feature. To do this, change the file name extension from .exe to .zip. Then, use Windows Explorer to copy the files from the compressed folder.
• Extract the contents from the .cab file.
If there is no .inf file in the driver package, but there are one or more .cab files, you may be able to extract the contents of the .cab files.
Note This method is usually unsuccessful. Typically, these kinds of driver packages are created by using the InstallShield program. The InstallShield program uses a special .cab format that is not designed to be accessed by tools such as WinZip or WinRAR.
• Locate the files in the Temp folder.
If you still cannot access the installation files, try to locate extracted temporary files. Typically, files are extracted to a local Temp folder when you install a program. You may be able to view the contents of the driver package by examining the contents of the Temp folder. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Remove the contents of the Temp folder. By removing the contents of the Temp folder, you can more easily locate the temporary files that are created when you run the driver installation program. To remove the contents of the Temp folder, follow these steps:
a. Click Start and then click Computer.
b. Right-click the hard disk on which Windows Vista is installed, and then click Properties.
 In the Local Disk (DriveLetter) Properties dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Disk Cleanup.
 In the Disk Cleanup Options dialog box, click Files from all users on this computer.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
 Under Files to delete, click to clear all the check boxes, click to select the Temporary files check box, and then click OK.
 When you are prompted to permanently delete the files, click Delete Files.
c. Use Windows Explorer to open the Temp folder. To do this, click Start
type %temp% in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
d. Start the driver installation program.
Note Some installation programs automatically delete the temporary files when the installation program exits. Therefore, leave the driver installation program running in the background.
e. Examine the contents of the Temp folder to locate the driver files.
Step 2: Manually install the driver
After you locate the .inf file for the driver that you want to install, manually install the new driver. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start , right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
2. In the Tasks pane, click Device Manager.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue.
3. In Device Manager, locate the device for which you want to install the driver.
Note To display hidden devices, click Show hidden devices on the View menu.
4. Right-click the device and then click Update Driver Software.
5. Click Browse my computer for driver software, click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, and then click Have Disk.
6. In the Install from Disk dialog box, click Browse, locate an .inf file for the device driver that you want to install, and then click Open.
7. Follow the steps in the Update Driver Software DeviceName dialog box to update the driver.

Extract protected rar files


To extracted protected a protected rar file, you can use Winrar.
Download and install Winrar and then open your rar file using the program. It'll ask you for your password. You must have the password to extract the file. If you don't know it, then you will not be able to extract the file. Once you've got the file open, just choose where you want to extract it to and you're done.
Hope that helps.

I updated a friends Vista PC to SP2 and now her SPrint Wireless card does not work. Its asking for a data interface disk. What is this


The installation program is not completing the install with the necessary drivers.

The fix: you must extract all the files from Sprint's .MSI installation file. I downloaded a free utility called Lessmsierables-20050611.zip by searching for an MSI extractor. It will allow you to right click the MSI file and extract all of the files to a folder.

After extracting all of the files, I inserted my Aircard 580 and the Data Interface box came up again. Point the driver installation to the folder you extracted and presto, it will install both of the Data Interface drivers (which are Aircard 580 drivers)

I just purchased registry defender on line,and I can't instal the program


Find where you downloaded it to on your machine. Use Start/Search if you don't remember.

If it's a zip file, right click to extract it to a folder. Then look in that folder for setup.exe

If it's an exe file, double clicking on it should either start the install, or extract it to another folder, where the setup.exe program should be found.
