Method 1: Copying the Dsound.dll Library to the Windows System Directory link

  1. The file you will download is a compressed file with the ".zip" extension. You cannot directly install the ".zip" file. Because of this, first, double-click this file and open the file. You will see the library named "Dsound.dll" in the window that opens. Drag this library to the desktop with the left mouse button. This is the library you need.
    Extracting the Dsound.dll library from the .zip file
    Step 1:Extracting the Dsound.dll library from the .zip file
  2. Copy the "Dsound.dll" library you extracted and paste it into the "C:\Windows\System32" directory.
    Copying the Dsound.dll library into the Windows/System32 directory
    Step 2:Copying the Dsound.dll library into the Windows/System32 directory
  3. If your operating system has a 64 Bit architecture, copy the "Dsound.dll" library and paste it also into the "C:\Windows\sysWOW64" directory.
    NOTE! On 64 Bit systems, the dynamic link library must be in both the "sysWOW64" directory as well as the "System32" directory. In other words, you must copy the "Dsound.dll" library into both directories.
    Pasting the Dsound.dll library into the Windows/sysWOW64 directory
    Step 3:Pasting the Dsound.dll library into the Windows/sysWOW64 directory
  4. In order to complete this step, you must run the Command Prompt as administrator. In order to do this, all you have to do is follow the steps below.
    NOTE! We ran the Command Prompt using Windows 10. If you are using Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP, you can use the same method to run the Command Prompt as administrator.
    1. Open the Start Menu and before clicking anywhere, type "cmd" on your keyboard. This process will enable you to run a search through the Start Menu. We also typed in "cmd" to bring up the Command Prompt.

The library we pasted in the System32 directory will not be damaged).
    %windir%\System32\regsvr32.exe /u Dsound.dll
    Cleaning the problematic registry of the Dsound.dll library from the Windows Registry Editor
    Step 5:Cleaning the problematic registry of the Dsound.dll library from the Windows Registry Editor
  6. If you are using a Windows version that has 64 Bit architecture, after running the above command, you need to run the command below. With this command, we will clean the problematic Dsound.dll registry for 64 Bit (The cleaning process only involves the registries in Regedit. In other words, the dynamic link library you pasted into the SysWoW64 will not be damaged).
    %windir%\SysWoW64\regsvr32.exe /u Dsound.dll
    Uninstalling the Dsound.dll library's problematic registry from Regedit (for 64 Bit)
    Step 6:Uninstalling the Dsound.dll library's problematic registry from Regedit (for 64 Bit)
