Well to tell you this is quite simple there are no complicated steps to be taken here. Fist off I will tell you to do this at your own risk I will not assume responsibility of any messed up computers due to lack of knowledge or not following instructions, however, The chances of that happening is unlikely. Now lets get to it. I’m gonna use a program that actually gave me problems, hopefully you can compare and contrast.
The program am still is flight planner; it gave me an error that the msstdfmt.dll is ether missing or corrupted. What I did was download another copy of the dll but those it go? I am not sure either so I figure most of them go in the systems folder (system 32 or sysWOW64 for 64bit users). I put the copy of the dll in one of those folders and try it again and I still get the same error. At fist I didn’t know what to do I did some more researching and finally came across something and it worked. It wasn’t easy to find after a few hours of searching that’s why I made this article to make things easier. OK here are the steps that you should follow to register a dll file or some other file for that matter.
Open the command prompt or cmd. By-the-way this is for Windows vista/7 and 64bit users I’m not sure about xp. Run the cmd as administrator.
Put the dll in your system folder as I mentioned earlier. Then type in cd/ then press enter. Then type cd windows and press enter. Then type cd System32 (or SysWOW64 if you have a 64 bit system). Then when you are in the correct file location, type in:
regsvr32 and then type in thenameofthefile.dll and press enter. That should have worked. Confirm that by opening the program. If it doesn’t work I don’t know how else to help you. I hope this article helped.
