msvfw32.dll is missing from your computer

27 posts in this topic

googling told me that msvfw32.dll could be anything (i didn't see anything helpful when googling within a year so i google all years), and some sites say redownloading is a bad idea. if i should, what's the safest source and where do you put the file?

advise please? anyone familiar and knowledgeable with msvfw32.dll?

win 7 64 bit

It's Microsoft Video For Windows 32-bit Dynamic Link Library, pretty essential stuff, it's alarming that it's missing. First thing is to do as MrJinje wrote.

(32 is historical name, it might be 64-bit)

did the scan thing, and then checked the log it gave for "msvfw"

found these:

"Cannot repair member file"
"Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, file is missing"

"Could not reproject corrupted file"
"source file in store is also corrupted"

now what?? :/

*** wonders if you ever have these kinds of problem on macs..... (would really like to know)

guess you can try the repair install -- http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/c0e78d7a-883d-4caa-a8c0-1e127a14612a/windows-7-home-premium-download

==

the "ITEMS THAT WILL BE RESET TO DEFAULT OR AFFECTED:" in -- http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html -- is too extensive, and i dont keep any kind of discs anymore (may not fix it)

why is it not ok to dl the dll file -- http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/solved-msvfw32-dll-missing-253733.html -- seems to have fixed it for others

another problem that may be related that i tried taking care of finally --> sp1 never installs (the other window updates installes) -- dling the "standalone" (from the mircosoft site) and sp1 gives the error msg to install

System Update Readiness Tool for Windows 7 (KB947821) -- http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=3132

but i run in to the same problem -- http://superuser.com/questions/471883/windows-update-stuck-fixt-it-stuck-so-is-kb947821-what-should-i-do

i retry and eventually it does reinstall but the service pack 1 keeps giving the same error msg of not completing/failing

but it looks like i should just re-install if i want to fix this -- http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/150073-Win-7-32-bit-update-to-SP1-(KB976932)-will-not-complete-configuring-quot-Failed

1) Because you asked your question at a forum that does not condone the hosting of Windows DLL files without the express written permission from the National Football League.

2) Because you can find them on your install disk, inside the install.wim file (system32 and or syswow64 folder), very easy to mount with DISM if you had kept your install disk (which we were not made aware of until your latest post)

"does not condone the hosting of Windows DLL files without the express written permission from the National Football League." -- sorry i don't know that much and am pretty lost here

"you can get ISOs from digital river. Google for them" -- it's linked to on one of the link

and i remembered that this is a used dell laptop so i never had the discs in the first place

if it fixes this, i'll just post that it solved it....

the file may have been damaged by one of these within the past 2 year.... (no idea):

comodo program manager

revo uninstaller

You should have the backup in the WinSxS folder. In a cmd, run this to find them.

dir msvfw32.dll /s

great link! extracted it, so where do you put it? replace it in the system folder?

"dir msvfw32.dll /s" -- found it but there's only 1 and isn't that the 'corrupted' version

repairing everything would likely fix it and the sp1 problem -- but i don't keep any discs at all so i can't burn the iso
