Runtime Error 48: error loading DLL when processing a winwriter report


If you are using a registry cleanup or optimizer tool and the software was working fine previously, restore the last changes made by the utility and stop using it immidiately! These kinds of tools are highly dangerous to the health of your computer.

If that does not fix it try following the directions in our DAO Issues page: Replacing DAO files.


Finally you can try this:

  • Download "Runtime Error" file
  • Unzip the file on your desktop
  • Double-click the file to repair the registry (you will be prompted by the UAC for administrator rights - Allow)

The above file will work for 32bit and 64bit machines and all versions of office from 2007 onwards. It should also work for office 2003 and before but this has not been confirmed.
