SAPGui can't start because librfc32.dll is missing

Dear Experts,

When I tried to run SAP logon (SAPGui), the following message appeared,

"The program can't start because librfc32.dll is missing from your computer"

even though the librfc32.dll file is in the c:\windows\system32.

I reregister the dll using regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\librfc32.dll but still the same problem.

I did try to uninstall and reinstall entire SAPGui but still the same.

What else should I try?

regards,

Abraham

    I have seen this issue before,

    Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update and re-register the dll that shoudl fix the problem

    You can get it from

      Hi Juan,

      I've solved the problem. This is due to the SAPGui is a 32bit program and running on 64bit Windows Server 2008 R2. I supposed to copy the dll file in SysWOW64 folder instead of System32. I was confused with the name but finally found out the SysWOW64 folder is meant for 32bit DLL or OCX files whereas System32 folder is meant for 64bit files.

      Anyway, thanks for trying to help.

      Regards,

      Abraham
