FAQ: Troubleshooting, part IV: DLL errors

Submitted by one of our member libraries --

Here's the question:
After pulling 2 or 3 books down without incident, I'm now getting an
error when downloading from Overdrive Media Console. I select download
on the listenupvermont.org download page, where I've checked out a
book. OMC starts up, and the Get Media window appears, showing the
title of the book and the save folder. I click OK, and get a window
saying "Error loading type library/DLL."

I've removed and reinstalled OMC, and rebooted. Any suggestions? I
don't see this in the help files.

And OverDrive's answer:

We are sorry for the trouble your patron experienced. The error they
received is caused when there is a problem with one of the system DLL
files OverDrive Media Console uses. To resolve that, please ask them to
follow these steps:

1. Uninstall OverDrive Media Console by going to the "Add/Remove
Programs" control panel.
2. Once uninstalled, navigate to C:\Windows\System32
3. Rename capicom.dll to capicom.dll.old
4. Reinstall OverDrive Media Console. The installation file can be
downloaded from http://www.overdrive.com/files/odmediaconsolesetup.msi

Please let us know if this helped or if we can be of further assistance.

Thank You,
The Library Reserve Support Team

Before uninstalling and restalling OD, try this first:

1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
2. At the command prompt, type regsvr32 capicom.dll

Then see if this fixes the problem.
