  • Npptools.dll Error Messages
    There are several different ways that npptools.dll errors can show up on your computer. Here are some of the more common ways that you might see npptools.dll errors:

    "Npptools.dll Not Found"


    "This application failed to start because npptools.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."


    "Cannot find [PATH]\npptools.dll"


    "The file npptools.dll is missing."


    "Cannot start [APPLICATION]. A required component is missing: npptools.dll. Please install [APPLICATION] again."
    Npptools.dll error messages might appear while using or installing certain programs, when Windows starts or shuts down, or maybe even during a Windows installation.

    The context of the npptools.dll error is an important piece of information that will be helpful while solving the problem.

    Cause of Npptools.dll Errors
    Npptools.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the npptools DLL file.

    In some cases, npptools.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.

    How to Fix Npptools.dll Errors
    Important: Do not download npptools.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of npptools.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.
    Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the npptools.dll error.

    Restore npptools.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" npptools.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.

    Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some npptools.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the npptools.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.

    Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the npptools.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.

    Reinstall the program that uses the npptools.dll file. If the npptools.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.

    Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the npptools.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.

    Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to npptools.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file npptools.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.

    Note: The npptools.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.

    Roll back a driver to a previously installed version if npptools.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.

    Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the npptools.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.

    Install any available Windows updates. Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The npptools.dll file could be included in one of those updates.

    Test your memory and then test your hard drive. I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause npptools.dll errors as they fail.

    If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.

    Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual npptools.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.

    Perform a clean installation of Windows. A clean install of Windows will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the npptools.dll error, this should be your next course of action.

    Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the npptools.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.

    Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any npptools.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.

  • Hi Vivian,

        Is npptools.dll redistributable with other applications?.. I think it comes with windows only.

        What should be the approach if we need to have this in Windows7 ?..

    Regards

    Arnab
