Fix MSVBVM50.dll

Fix Kernel32

DLL errors are a common occurrence for those who use WinOS operating systems. There are numerous types of DLL errors, but one of the most familiar is the MSVBVM50.dll error. When this type of error occurs, your screen will display a message that says, "Explorer caused an invalid page fault in module MSVBVM50.dll."

What is a MSVBVM50.dll Error?

If you have received the following WinOS operating system error message (or similar): MSVBVM50.dll, was not found.
You must repair or replace this particular DLL file. The reason you are receiving this error is that this DLL file was not properly installed, has been corrupted or deleted, and is no longer recognized on your PC. This error is most common on WinOS XP, but occasionally the problem has been known to appear on other versions of WinOS. This could be the result of normal wear-and-tear on a system due to the installing and uninstalling of third-party applications; occasionally this could be a result of malware. Whatever the reason maybe, nowadays, missing DLLs shouldn't be more troublesome than replacing a battery in a flashlight. But if you want to use your flashlight, you're still going to need that battery, and with Reimage, you won't even have to worry about the specific type of battery need, or where to find it.

Why is this happening?

A dynamic link library, or DLL, is a file containing small programs, that assist executable, or EXE programs, in performing certain functions. This particular DLL, the Microsoft Visual Basic Virtual Machine version 50 (MSVBM50) contains a run time responsible for communicating with Visual Basic (VB) programing language. MSVBVM50.dll is now a standard file that has appeared in all editions of WinOS OS since Win 95.

What to do?

If you are a Reimage subscriber, the solution is as simple as clicking on a button.

  1. Run Reimage. Allow it to scan your system and locate the missing or damaged file. Depending on the individual PC, this can take as few as 3 minutes or as long as 10. We suggest that you allow for a full scan of your system to ensure a full and through repair.
  2. Click "Start repair" and allow the remote PC repair tool to work its magic in no time at all.

If you are not a reimage subscriber, the solution is slightly tricky.

  1. Locate and download the latest version of the MSVBVM50.dll file from a trusted site. It is imperative to install the correct file (a similar file exists and is labeled 60 instead of 50).
  2. Paste the file into the System Directory (System32 for NT machines).
  3. Go to "Start" and click "Run".
  4. Type RegSvr32.exe MSVBVM50.dll and click "OK".
  5. The following message should appear: DLLRegisterServer in C:\WinOS\System\MSVBVM50.DLL succeeded
  6. If this message does not appear, make sure you have the most recent version of Msvbvm50.dll. In addition, check that RegSvr32.exe is installed on your system. Once reinstalled, any programs relying on VB should run smoothly.

However, Reimage will also ensure that the next generation of this runtime, MSVBM60.dll (standard since Win 98), is available and running properly, to avoid future complications.
