Re-Register all DLL’s to fix “No such interface supported” error in windows 7 after installing IE7 Standalone

Re-Register all DLL’s to fix “No such interface supported” error in windows 7 after installing IE7 Standalone

Disclaimer: All care No Responsibility. you follow the instructions provided at your own risk. I take no responsibility any damage you may cause. Please read the article in full before starting

To test some website stuff I tried to install IE7 on my windows 7 machine. now I cant run explorer for browsing files or accessing control panel and the like. I found an old guide for re-registering all your dll’s that I thought was quite nifty so I thought I woukld re-share it with you. (up-dated from windows 98)

The original instructions basically get you to dump all DLL files into notepad, then do a find and replace to regsvr32 them all. if you do it from c:\ like it suggests, you might get more than you need. including dll files from the recycle bin.

this fixed my problem. and I think its worth trying this way before doing it for every file on your computer.

I am going to assume your windows installation is on C:\ and in C:\ windows

1. open command promt as an administrator (You may need to find it in accessories, right click it and run as administrator if you are having issues with security rights)

2. type

CD C:\WINDOWS

(and C:\ if you werent on that drive by default)

3. type Dir *.dll /s /b > c:\regdll.bat

This will search for all dll files within c:\windows (including /subdirectories) and output them (in /bare format) into a text file on the c:\ called regdll.bat
you cant run it just yet because its just a list of files, we need to change it so that its actually got a command. open the file in your prefered text editor (notepad) and do a replace on c:\ , replacing it with Regsvr32.exe /s c:\

This is what your file should look like.

Now. before trying to run the file. I highly recommend you scrolldown until you find $patchcache$ and WinSXS folders and deleting all the references to the files within those directories in the file. (dont delete them off your computer) Leaving them in will excruciatingly increase the time to do this and very likely stuff lots up. Also John Crenshaw mentions: You probably also want to delete any lines for the temp folder, if any, since registering a DLL that may not exist later is probably not an awesome idea.

Once this is done. Save the file and run it. If you still have your command prompt as administrator open, just type c:\regdll.bat

This will register all dll files in c:\windows and subdirectories. This will take some time, (Potentially, also register files that would not normally be registered by default, (like files in $patchcache$ and other windows directories if you did not remove them). It worked for me and I dont need to do a reinstall :)

You will get errors. just click ok.

    It was healpfull. I found lots of sites with similiar content. Probably this problem do not involve only instaling IE7. After i installed my win7 x64 i removed IE from my system and deleted all folders in Program Files (and in (x86)) and never installed any patch for IE or newer IE.
    This bug simply somehow appeard and i didn’t noticed when (i wanted to change theam of my desktop and RMB on it -> “Personalize” -> No souch interface blabla error).

    Few bugs in article: missing “\” after c:

    Some addidional advices: If someone is using 64-bit version of win7 i recomend to delete most entries with “System32″, not including “driver” in name. 64-bit system do not usually use 32-bit .dll so why bother.
    .NET Framework .dll’s could be excluded too, becouse there are lot of them and 100% don’t couse this error.

    But overall great article, hope that people on msdn forums would give souch advices, not something like: go back to restor point or some other useless advices not resolving problem.

    Should have not inform them to delete all the files in the directory:

    “$patchcache$ and WinSXS folders and deleting all the files in there”.

    I dont ask people to delete the files, just remove them from the text file. But I can see how some might misunderstand. I have changed the wording.

    Hi, are you running the command prompt as an administrator (specifically, right click, run as administrator)

  46. #47 by Charles Helvey on April 26, 2012 - 1:52 pm

    Instead of doing the file and the find / replace, you can:

    This is the command for use in the command prompt:
    for /f %a in (‘dir /b/s c:\windows\*.dll’) do regsvr32 /s %a

    This is the command for use in a batch file:
    for /f %%a in (‘dir /b/s c:\windows\*.dll’) do regsvr32 /s %%a

    The dir /b/s will produce a list of all dll files with paths. For example, c:\windows\file.dll or c:\windows\system32\file.dll. The single quote marks around the command tell for/f that you want the output of a command, not a file.

    The %a variable gets each file name in turn from the dir command’s output.

    regsvr32 /s – the /s silently registers, so you won’t have to click OK a million times.

    In w7 or vista the command prompt should be run as administrator.

    Whilst this might work, it does not give you the opportunity to remove the $patchcache$ and WinSXS dll files which you DON’T want to register

    Thanks pyrocam for all this! Unfortunately, didn’t seem to work for me. I noticed you seemed more emphatic in previous post regarding: “$patchcache$ and WinSXS dll files which you DON’T want to register.” I DID NOT remove those from text file (probably why it took so long to run). SHOULD I REMOVE THEM AND TRY AGAIN? If so, please forgive my amateur question, but how can I remove many lines in text file without painfully slow scrolling? Thanks!

    It’s worth trying
    to select large areas you can use shift + pagedown, or left click at the start, move the scrollbar to where it ends, hold shift and left click where it ends.

    Good luck

    These instructions are epic. You probably also want to delete any lines for the temp folder, if any, since registering a DLL that may not exist later is probably not an awesome idea.

    Update. This worked until I restarted, then windows appeared to load but all that was displayed was a black screen and just the cursor. The same with safe mode. All I could do was repair mode and restore back to before the re-registering. I will try again but only doing the dlls one folder at a time unless anyone else can let me know which dlls were affected by installing ie7 standalone. Appreciate any help offered. – peace

    pyrocam :

    Yes, I removed both winsxs and $patchcache$ references in the regdll.bat file. I’ve since searched for more info and have seen the same issue posted elsewhere but with no solution. So after plenty of searching I came across this site: http://iefaq.info/index.php?action=artikel&cat=48&id=133&artlang=en I downloaded and used the file ie8-rereg.64on64.cmd that was in the .zip (it’s been updated to include ie9) and now my issue is solved. Looking at the contents of the file, it’s only a few dlls that need re-registering. Hopefully this will help others. Peace

    Although many people said this Batch file execution method helped them, for me it did not work at all. I use a Sony Laptop and the last time I did a maintenance with “VAIO care” I faced this same probelm. no exe file could be executed by dbl-clicking on it. and no start-up program loaded either. no shortcut could be opened. I felt I had gone back to stone age! I think the reason for my problem was that I had hibernated my computer for several days and never did a restart. So, The solution was very simple. I restarted the in “Safe mode with command prompt” and used MS DOS prompt to get to VAIOcare.exe and run it. It was fine and I did a roll-back on the registery cleaner restore point, then restarted windows. all problems solved.

    JUST REGISTER actxprxy.dll
    actxprxy.dll

  83. #87 by Norm on October 8, 2012 - 3:08 pm

    Alas, after re-registering the dlls all is fine until I reboot. Then I’m left with the black screen of death and just the white mouse pointer.
    I can solve that with a system restore but that means reverting back to my previous problem pre registered.
    Any ideas?

      Try VoorHees’s idea. I haven’t tested it myself but no harm in trying. I can only expect that its not working due to registering more files that shouldn’t be registered.

    You could try voorhees’s idea (above) but I havent tested. I would guess your problem is to do with more files being registered than should be

  102. #107 by JBirm on March 15, 2013 - 8:08 pm

    you are the man! thank you sir, you saved me a boatload of time, grief, and many other terrible unnecessary experiences. The only thing I had some issues with was that regsvr32 kept crashing. It would immediately come back up, but I am guessing this could be solved by setting the “buffer” command in the batch file. Thanks for sharing, God bless!

  103. #108 by James on March 18, 2013 - 12:02 pm

    Excellent. Worked perfectly, didn’t even need a restart!

    For editing the .bat file I highly recommend Notepad++ instead of notepad

  106. #111 by Charline on May 10, 2013 - 6:53 am

    Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your site on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, excellent site!

    Greetings! I’ve been reading your weblog for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Huffman Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the fantastic work!

    Hi Doni, from notepad. (dont delete them off your computer)

    Thank you! I have been trying every suggestion for months on end. Finally, I can “open containing folder” from downloads in Firefox without getting the dreaded “interface not registered”!
