Failed to load dll: dsetup
I had some extra time to spare, so I took out my old Civilization 4 game which I bought some years back. I installed it on my laptop and it said failed to load dll: dsetup...
Well, I cannot seem to play it anymore? failed to load dll: dsetup ?? I searched the Internet for the solution but I found really unexpected solutions. One suggested reformatting the hard disk, another suggested wiping the disk, which I tried to no success. Another one suggested installing an upgrade from the Internet but I could not find any. Then there was this guy who said installing new 3D card drivers would help. Tried that one too.
Eventually, I found out the problem to this failed to load dll: dsetup thingy. The dsetup.dll file just wasn't in my new laptop! I downloaded it from the Internet, put it into my c:\windows\system32 folder and voila... the installer started!
So, it is actually quite easy to solve failed to load dll: dsetup problems...
