Hi,
After downloading XPSP2 i tryed to download wmp10. I got these massages. HEADER: Msmsgs.exe - unable to locate componet. BODY: This application failed to start because gdiplus.dll was not found Re - installing the application may fix the problem. After re-installing 5 times it did't work. When you click ok this message comes up. Header: Notifyalert.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services Body: Application has generated an excption that could not be handled process id = 0x7b0 (1968),thread id = 0x7b4 (1972) I still get both messages at start up. After copying a gdiplus.dll and placing it in the wmp10 folder it works fine. but i still get the error messages.? I have 5 or 6 gdiplus.dll on my Pc. How do i solve this problem.? :thumbsup:

.===========
Gdiplus.dll
===========

For Windows XP use the system-supplied gdiplus.dll. Do not install a new gdiplus.dll over the system-supplied version (it will fail due to Windows File Protection).

For Windows 2000, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 98, install gdiplus.dll into the private directory of the application not into the system directory.

In addition to the rights granted in Section 1 of the Agreement ("Agreement"), with respect to gdiplus.dll for Windows 2000, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 98, you have the following non-exclusive, royalty free rights subject to the Distribution Requirements detailed in Section 1 of the Agreement:

(1) You may distribute gdiplus.dll solely for use with Windows 2000, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 98.

Hi,
After getting no help from the moderating team in this fourm i solved the problem by placing gdiplus.dll in the system32 folder, by using the files supplied by http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en After download clicking browse and then finding system32 folder and then selecting it then clicking ok then unzip. As for the wmp10 i did manage to get it to work by copying gdiplus.dll and placing it in the wmp10 folder but it didn't get rid of the error message, now it does. Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

After running CleanUp 4.0 I'm encountering the same error. No longer can I look at pictures using Windows Picture Viewer nor can I view video without turning to a third party download, same with pics. I recieve this error:

This application has failed to start because gdiplus.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

How can I repair this?

I am getting the same error message with Windows Media Player 10.

I have ran 2 codes in run mode...both of which told me that the application is not missing.

this smells like a bug.

1] Click Start, and then click Run.
2] In the Open box, type regsvr32 jscript.dll, and then click OK.
3] Click OK.
4] Click Start, and then click Run.
5] In the Open box, type regsvr32 vbscript.dll, and then click OK.
6] Click OK.


this is some advice that I got from castle cops...

still did not work.

I will try firerock advice if I can find this folder...not sure where it is.
