Hello everyone,

I have a problem with the dinput8.dll-file from DirectX installations. When i try installing Flash-Player the following message pop up:

"C:\windows\system32\DINPUT8.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."


I already tried everything from the following site: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findbyerrormessage/a/dinput8-dll-not-found-missing-error.htm

and I also tried sfc /scannow


but unfortunately the options from the website didn't solve my problem and according to the CBS-log the "source file in store" also seems to be corrupted ...

The last thing I did before this problem occurred was updating my graphics-driver.


Is there maybe something else I could do?

Also if there is any additional information you might need, just say so.
