When I open the browser, I receive The procedure entry point_except_handler4_common could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll message. What can I do?
The procedure entry point_except_handler4_common could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll
If the problem appears after installing or upgrading the Mozilla
Firefox browser to version 3.5 (or later) operating under Windows XP,
the problem is due to a Windows Vista driver (dwmapi.dll) installed in
a Windows XP OS at folder system32 by mistake (faulty install
program). Delete that dwmapi.dll file to fix the problem.
This error is caused by a 3rd party utility or applcation overwriting your msvcrt.dll with a different version.
For example if a windows vista version of this DLL was copied on to a windows XP computer you would probably get this error.
In order to fix the issue, I suggest you upgrade the browser to the latest version. Also, you can find and download the msvcrt.dll file in (C:) > Windows > System32 folder using Google search engine. Another solution is to run the Dll-Files Fixer which is developed to solve all .dll related issues.
Thats a known problem after installing or upgrading the Mozilla Firefox browser to version 3.5 (or later) operating under Windows XP...
I found this answer. Just go to (If you're using windows XP) "C:WindowsSystem32" directory and delete DWMAPI.DLL if it's there. This file belongs to windows vista and shouldn't be on Windows XP.
