Lifecam VX-5000 DLL Issue - Kernel32.dll
» I have a Lifecam VX-5000 and I am running Windows XP 64 bit. I went to open the Microsoft lifecam exe and I got this error: AppName: lifecam.exe AppVer: 2.4.542.0 ModName: kernel32.dllModVer: 5.2.3790.4480 Offset: 0002237e
DLL compatibility errors – sometimes when a program fails to load, it will display an error message such as the ordinal 0×876 could not be located in the dynamic-link library xyz.dll or you install a new application and some other programs stop working correctly. This is usually the result of a new DLL that is not backward compatible with older versions of the same dynamic link library. This usually happens because the programmer did not sufficiently test the new DLL to make sure it would support all of the functions of the earlier version.
DLL naming errors – a new application is installed and the entire system crashes. This occurs when a programmer accidentally names his new DLL with the same name as an operating system DLL and thus effectively overwrites it causing the system to crash.
Missing .dll – The system tells you it can not find a specific DLL(for example, kernel32.dll is missing) and refuses to open the application. This happens when the dynamic link library was not included in the installation package or the DLL file has somehow become corrupted, such as TrojanDropper:Win32/Pykspa.A attack.
It is best to use DLL SUITE to free download the missing dll file and fix the issue. DLL Suite is a most safe and clean update library of any important dll files for your pc!

- MARY KENNEDY replied on March 1, 2013: » This can be due to older PCs that have older graphics chipsets that do not fully support DirectX 9.0c (specifically Pixel Shader). Such a system can fail when enumerating the effects.
A work around would be to move the files starting with "04Geometric_" from the following location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft LifeCam\Effects\Visual
- IRWIN STONE replied on March 2, 2013: » I would recommend creating a folder in the 'Effects' folder titled 'VisualBackup'.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft LifeCam\Effects\'VisualBackup'
Once you have created that folder, move the files starting with "04Geometric_" into that new location.

I choose to use xp 64 bit instead of these "new" windows. I don't like them. But that's a whole different subject. My camera works. I've tested it. The visuals work fine. But the program "lifecam.exe" just don't work. The error it complains about is that it has an problem and wants to close
- FRANCOISE HOMRIGHAUSEN replied on March 4, 2013: » I would suggest you to perform system restore and check with the issue.
