Many users of Windows-based computer systems often face a problem when a message is issued that the specified module was not found (126th error). How to interpret it, not everyone knows, and the question of whether a particular device is associated with a malfunction is often perplexing. Let's see what's what.
Causes and devices causing the error "The specified module could not be found"
The failure itself with the indicated error, in general, nothing particularly serious in terms of consequences for the operation of operating systems, Windows does not.
This error can occur in a variety of situations, but as practice shows, in most cases this can be reduced to incorrect identification of corrupted dynamic libraries, disconnected HID devices (for example, USB mice) or services interpreting correct access to server-side OS functions.
"The specified module could not be found" error: a solution to the problem for Radeon graphics cards
To the great regret of fans of graphic chipsets from the company Radeon, these video adapters are the most susceptible to crashes of this kind. Even with correctly installed drivers, there may be a conflict with the use of OpenGL functions.
In case the system issues a notification that the specified dll module could not be found, there may be three ways to solve this problem: either update the drivers of the video card to the latest version, or install the most current versions of DirectX, or directly intervene in the system using the command line and Several follow-up actions.
With the first two ways, I think, and so everything is clear, so that they will not stop at them. But here about manual correction of a problem it is necessary to talk separately. Now explain how the following commands will work, not worth it (especially from a program or technical point of view). It's enough that they just work.
So, for graphic integrated adapters (those that are built directly into the motherboard) such as Intel HD Graphics or similar Radeon chips, nVIDIA, etc., you must first write CD / d C: / Windows / System32 on the command line, and then - copy atio6axx.dll atiogl64.dll (with the input key pressed after each command). For desktop (non-embedded) models, the command looks somewhat different: copy atio6axx.dll .dll (again, followed by "Enter." In theory, after that everything should work fine.
So-called intelligent HID devices can also cause errors like "The specified module was not found". With them, the situation in some ways is the same as with the graphics hardware, but in most cases the problem is reduced only to the fact that for some reason the driver files have been damaged or deleted.
In this situation, for example, for Windows XP, you need to boot from an installation or recovery disk (for example, a Live CD), find in the installation distribution a file called Drivers.cab, which is usually located in the i386 folder, and extract three main components from it: Mouclass.sys, mouhid.sys, and hidserv.dll.
After this, you must necessarily restart the computer in safe mode (F8 key when Windows starts), then copy the specified files to the System32 directory of the Windows root folder. Next - another reboot of the OS, but already in the normal mode. As a rule, after this the system works stably in normal mode and without any failures.
With access to servers, too, unforeseen difficulties can arise. In this case (similar to the previous situations), the error "The specified module could not be found" appears. It is necessary to fight it through the Registry Editor, which is called by the regidit command in the "Run" menu (Win + R combination).
Here we need to go to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM branch, then - CurrentControlSet, then the "tree" - Services, and finally the parameters section, located in the lanmanserver branch. Here you must enter the value of "% SystemRoot% \ System32 \ srvsvc.dll", of course, if any other is specified. Here the matter is that the Windows OS itself perceives any - that internal, that external - the server as a general concept "server" and does not make a big difference even under condition of different access parameters.
As a result, as it is already clear, if there is an error related to the fact that for some reason the specified module was not found, it is still possible to solve the problems , and this is done quite simply, and no further critical failures are expected in the future. But first it is desirable to determine the nature of the error, and only then make a decision in favor of correcting it. How it will become depends only on the component in which the failure occurs: in software or in iron.
Of course, not all the problems that can arise in connection with such errors are described here. However, in our case, these are the most common types of failures and the most practical methods for correcting them. You can not rule out the option, when problems can be related to the hardware itself, that is, the driver has nothing to do with it, but it's the hardware that will have to be changed. However, this, as they say, is the most extreme cases, which should be resorted to when nothing is already helping (and does not depend on the user or the operating system). But that's another story ...
