d3d8thk.dll error in Windows Vista
Posted on 2010-08-20
Getting error in Windows Vista (x32) when operating many programs including iTunes, Dxdiag, remote desktop to name a few: "c:\windows\system32\d3d8thk.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error"
Tried re-installing DX9. Tried renaming the file in both normal and safe mode so the DX9 installer would install a new one, but get permissions errors. Any ideas? The user is very remote so I cannot simply remove his drive and replace files easily.
I also ran regsvr32 to try to re-register the DLL but received a similar error.
