    MSVBVM50.dll Problem

    Hi there,
    I have just installed a program and everytime I try to run it, I get an
    error saying that MSVBVM50.dll is required. I do not know what that is. Is
    there anyway I can get the program to run? I have already tried compatibility
    mode but that does not seem to help.

    Thanks!

    Re: MSVBVM50.dll Problem

    If you have access to a computer running Windows XP, you can Copy the file
    msvbvm50.dll from C:\WINDOWS\system32\, and Paste it into the same folder as
    the program's .exe file that requires it, for example, put it in C:\Program
    Files\ MyProgram, if the MyProgram folder contains MyProgram.exe. It
    shouldn't have to be put in Vista's C:\WINDOWS\system32\...

    If you don't have access to an XP computer, go to
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/172991/EN-US/ , and download
    http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb5/MSVBVM50.CAB . You can then
    extract the file from msvbvm50.cab, and place in the folder as noted above.

    I am having the same problem. I downloaded the MSVBVM50.dll file but can't
    seem to extract it. I don't have a C:\Program
    Files\ MyProgram, so tried to extract it into Vista's C:\WINDOWS\system32\,
    but a window showed saying "access denied". Any help will be apreciated!
    Thanks.

    Try downloading MSVBVM50.CAB to your desktop, double-click on MSVBVM50.CAB,
    then drag msvbvm50.dll out of the MSVBVM50.CAB "folder" to your desktop.
    Right-click on msvbvm50.dll, choose Cut, and Paste it into the same folder
    as the .exe file (program) that needs it.

    Even better, copy Both files contained within
    http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb5/MSVBVM50.CAB
    to the desktop.
    Right click on the MSVBVM50,inf Setup File, and click on Install.
    (The Setup File has a picture with one gear, the other file has 2 gears.)
    Now any program that needs it should run fine.
