Access 2013: can't find language dll msain.dll when double-clicking acce-file in explorer


  • Hi,

    When I want to open an acce-file by double-clicking it in Windows explorer it get the error:

    'Can't find Language DLL msain.dll'

    The strange thing (IMO) is that when I open the accde-file from within Access, it opens fine. Also clicking on the accde-file in the 'recent'-part of the pinned to the taskbar Access-icon, opens the file just fine.

    (Office 2013 - 32 bit on Windows 7 - 64 bit)

    Anyone know a solution for this behaviour?

  • Hi,

    Please try to re-install Access to check the issue. It seems other programs crashed the Dll.
