Cannot uninstall Canon Multipass Suite, and now keep getting 'MpDBlf.dll' file missing!

Tried to uninstall and install canon multipass suite 4.00 and have failed!! When uninstalling with add/remove it goes to the wizard but after clicking 'change/remove' button there is nothing showing to remove. But the multipass icon is still on my desktop and will not go away. Then when I try to re-install the multipass suite it fails halfway through with a 'filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect' error for the 'Fax Files'. Also still have a canon file in 'program files'.

I have been through Canon support all day with no luck, and am waiting for someone higher up the chain to call back. Have tried downloading the latest version of multipass aswell.

Since I have had this problem I now keep getting the message 'failed to load MpDBlf.dll' when going through menus in internet explorer. I saw that this came up a couple of times in the forum but no solution was posted.

Can anyone help as I need to use the multifunction (MPC600f) for work!

Hello jasonjdr =)

Disconnect this printer from ur system, then try the suggestions here to completely remove all the printer drivers present on ur machine and refreshing the print spooler service >> http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/CleanPrinterDrivers.htm

After completing, restart and now try to reinstall the printer, check if same problem or not ??

Tried a system restore, but this is failing aswell. Tried 3 different restore points and each time after the re-boot am told that it could not restore to that point.

The error message was;

Component: Fax Files
File group: Program Fax
File:
error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

>> The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
is it a standalone pc or did u install any network printers on it before ??

also run sfc scan and check if it picks anything wrong ??
Goto START>RUN and type  sfc /scannow
u will need ur WinXP CD in order to fix the corrupted windows system files, if found by scan.

I only have one system to try on, and failed to install on new accounts.

Good point about the fresh install. I will hold fire. But very annoying. Called canon again and still waiting for someone higher up the chain to call me back.

I read on your other link that canon have made it pretty much impossible to get this off the system unless you use their uninstall software. I think that, because this failed halfway through its in a 'no mans' area of no return or no moving forward.

i said it in answer to ur comment >> "Might need to back-up vitals and re-install windows"
its actually not my idea... coz i still suspect that what if Multipass is not compatible with XP and it willl fail after a reinstall also..... there is no official XP patch is available for it anywhere on the web,,,, even on the canon or its offical website =\

HP website always upload a special cleanup utility to cleanup the drivers and softwares for their printers.... i tried to look on the compaq website also....... but no luck,,,, their support link is not very helpful, i must say :-/

Thanks for your help. As you were the only one, you get the points.

Finally managed to solve the problem, with the help of a dedicated cannon IT guy! Just needed to make sure that the original version was completely uninstalled. This could not be done with the original software, so we had to go through the registry and ensure every related entry was removed.
