When I boot up my computer I am getting an error message which reads apdproxy.exe will not operate because ConnAPI.DLL was not found. After an Internet search, I found apdproxy.exe is attached to Photoshop Elements 6 which I recently installed. Also during the search I found some sites that indicated that apdproxy.exe is not necessary. I searched for ConnAPI.DLL and could not locate it on my machine. Is this DLL necessary and is it necessary for apdproxy.exe to start for Photoshop Elements 6 to work properly or is it not necessary? Because I just installed the program I have not had a chance to try it out. If apdproxy.exe is not necessary for the program to work properly then how can I stop this error message from occuring? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello bgg30 and welcome to BC :flowers:

I have done a bit of hunting on the Adobe website, and I have found a solution to your problem.

The .exe file looks for a variety of software to work with and link to when it loads up at start-up. A glitch with the program causes it to create this error message even when you don't have the software installed that contains that file. Adobe has posted how to fix this here.

Please note that the .exe file is necessary to download pictures and so forth, but it is NOT necessary to have it run at start-up.

Thank you for the reply but when I follow your link it tells me that the XML Page cannot be displayed. Could you post the URL to the fix? Maybe I will be able to access it that way. Thank you again for your help.

Luis, your link goes to something about Arabic languages and is not the link I posted.

The one I posted is this: http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewConten...1&sliceId=1

The link works fine for me.

bgg30, to find the URL in a link on BC, click on the quote button under the post to find the code that underlies the link.

In this case the code is this:

[url=http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=kb403011&sliceId=1][color=#0000FF][b]here[/b][/color][/url]

Thank you Orange Blossom. The link worked fine. I will make the changes. I'm new to the forum and haven't mastered it completely yet.
