    I have a Dell PC with Windows XP.
    When starting up most programs, I get an error message stating;
    "This application has failed to start because DCIMAN32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
    I have not deleted any files.

    :confused: HELP!

    OK. For whatever reason, I didn't have that dll file in the System32 folder. So I skipped the part about renaming the "existing" one as OLD.

    First I tried to expand the one in the i386 folder and I got an error message (at the command line window) that said;
    No destination specified for c:\i386\dciman32.dll_c:\windows\system32
    The dll file did not copy into system32

    So I downloaded the zip file and extracted the dll directly into system32, then tried the regsvr32 command. However, I got some error message that it couldn't find the entry path (or something like that) and therefore the dll file had not been registered.

    Is there a specific way that I should download the dll file?
