Hi,

'The code execution cannot proceed becuase XINPUT1_3.dll was not found'

i have tried to install direct x 9 web installer but get error 'Error creating process reason INDOWS\system32\advpack.dll'

i have tried installing DirectX June 2010 Redist but get an error (193) - %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

Can anybody help with this?

Before going further, are you authorized to make changes on this computer or is it a company unit?

Make sure you're in Admin account when attempting the installs.

What is the software you're trying to install? We seem to be in a conundrum between old DirectX and a modern OS. Knowing what the software is, we can be of more help unless it's so old that nothing can make it work (short of DOS :)).

Make sure advpack.dll actually exists in c:\Windows\System32.

In an elevated Command Prompt,run this
for %x in (c:\windows\system32\*.dll) do regsvr32 %x
Afterwards, try the install again.

still the same issue. when it comes to registering advpack.dll i get the error ' the module "advpack.dll" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.

make sure that "advpack.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file and they try again
