Plugins Troubleshooting

The following error message:
Paint Shop Pro was unable to load the requested plug-in filter. The plug-in may not be installed properly or may be missing files.
is caused by a missing .DLL file. Most commonly, it is caused by lack or misplacement of MSVCRT10.DLL. It can also be caused by lack or misplacement of PLUGIN.DLL. These files do not come with Windows. To fix the problem, install MSVCRT10.DLL and/or PLUGIN.DLL into:

Operating SystemLocation
Windows 95 C:\Windows\System
Windows 98 C:\Windows\System
Windows ME Put Msvcrt10.dll in C:\Windows\System
Put Plugin.dll in C:\Windows
Windows NT 4.0 C:\WINNT\System32
Windows 2000 C:\WINNT\System32
Windows XP C:\Windows\System32
Windows Vista C:\Windows\System32
Windows Vista 64-bit C:\Windows\SysWOW64

PLUGIN.DLL is distributed with Adobe products like Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Illustrator etc. It is technically a proprietary plugin, but you can find it all over the internet. You can also find msvcrt10.dll all over the internet. Other possible missing files are: msvcrt.dll, msvcrt20.dll and msvcrt40.dll. These files should come with your installation of windows.

What is a .DLL file?

DLL stands for dynamic link library. It is how Windows implements shared libraries. Msvcrt10.dll contains program code used to run programs written using Microsoft Visual C++. Msvcrt10.dll is required for programs written with Visual C++ to function correctly.
