Hello,

 

This is the first time to post anything on here.

 

When I start up my Windows 7 computer, it comes up with an error message with the message;

 

wscript.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll.

 

I click the OK button and it goes away as it is more of an annoyance really.

 

Does anyone know how to fix this?

 

Thank you

Hi ksharkman :)

I have a weird feeling about this error, let's see if my doubts are correct or not.
  • Download Autoruns from Sysinternals Suite;
  • Extract the archive then go in the folder where it was extraced;
  • In the folder, hold the Shift key in a blank space, then right-click and select Open a command prompt here;
  • In the command prompt, enter the following command: autorunsc -a > autoruns.txt
  • Once the command is done running, look for the autoruns.txt file in the folder you're in, attach it to your next post and post it;
I'm going home right now, be back online in 1 hour :)

Any member can attach a text file in this forum.

 

But it's better to just copy such and paste the content into the post being made.

Alright. Click on the Windows Start Menu, then enter cmd in the search box. Right-click on the cmd icon that will appear and select Run as Administrator. From there, enter the command: regsvr32 msvcrt.dll and tell me if you're getting a success message, or an error one.

getting error.

 

The module "msvcrt.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.

 

Make sure that "msvcrt.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

I rebooted and that message went away but now I get a different message;

 

wscript.exe - Bad Image

 

C:\Windows\System32\scrobj.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.
