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!

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.

It is Jan 2010 (2+ years after this post) and I used your link to resolve an
issue I had with a program I was unable to get rid of. I just followed your
instructions, placed it in the file and I was finally able to unistall it.

Thanks!!

I've been trying to get the DLL to copy to or open in the app file that needs
it but I get "access denied" (I'm the administrator and only user of this
laptop) or when downloaded it to the file it simply wasn't there when I open
the file. I'm running Win7, this dll worked when I ran Vista. Any
suggestions on how I can get the DLL into the file?

Thanks,
