Thread: I get an entry point _except_handler4_common error...

  1. #1

    Default I get an entry point _except_handler4_common error...

    The error is 'The procedure entry point _except_handler4_common could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll.'

    I get that error message when I try to open Photoshop CS4. I also happens with Regbooster...

    I reinstalled windows and installed SP3 again with all the latest C++ redistributable packs, framework packages, latest drivers for my components etc...

    I referred to this thread: but it did not help me much, mainly because I don't understand Greek... :-)

    My machine is:

    CPU: AMD Phenom 9950
    Memory: 3072MB
    MOBO: Asrock K10N78FullHD-SLI R3.0
    GPU: XFX 9800GT 512MB

    How can I fix this error?

    Is it serious?

    Its pointing to the incorrect msvcrt.dll it seems. How many versions of this file do you have on your system? What is you path variable set to? From a command prompt type "set", check Path=

    how do i that???

    I tried to fix it with regcure as well... but it didn't work...

    Search for msvcrt.dll using windows search - Right click C: > Search. See where they located, and the version.

    To find the path go:
    Start > run > type "CMD" > Type "Set" (in the new window). Find the Path= and post it here (dont type the ""). Good luck

    Yip - definately a version problem.

    Have a look at dependecy walker ( - you load the exe file into it and it tells you all the modules its using and their locations/versions etc.

    Version 7.0.2600.5512 (xpsp.080413-2111)
    Date: 18/4/2008

    I'm running XP SP3

    Why does yuour have a date stamp of 2007?
