PhotoAcq.dll is not a valid WIN32 application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Re: Windows 7,  When I try to download photo's from my camera I am receiving the following message:

    "There was a problem starting C:\Program Files\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoAcq.dll

    Program Files\Windows Photo Viewer\PhotoAcq.dll is not a valid Win32 application"

    I also installed Adobe Photoshop Elements 9. It seems to have installed okay but will not open beyond the welcome screen.  I suspect the two problems are related. 

    Any suggestions?
