Methods for Solving Banshee.dlllink

ATTENTION! Before starting the installation, the Banshee.dll file needs to be downloaded. If you have not downloaded it, download the file before continuing with the installation steps. If you don't know how to download it, you can immediately browse the dll download guide above.

Method 1: Solving the DLL Error by Copying the Banshee.dll File to the Windows System Folderlink

  1. The file you are going to download is a compressed file with the '.zip' extension. You cannot directly install the '.zip' file. First, you need to extract the dll file from inside it. So, double-click the file with the '.zip' extension that you downloaded and open the file.
  2. You will see the file named 'Banshee.dll' in the window that opens up. This is the file we are going to install. Click the file once with the left mouse button. By doing this you will have chosen the file.
  3. Click the 'Extract To' symbol marked in the picture. To extract the dll file, it will want you to choose the desired location. Choose the 'Desktop' location and click 'OK' to extract the file to the desktop. In order to do this, you need to use the Winrar software. If you do not have this software, you can find and download it through a quick search on the Internet.
  4. Copy the 'Banshee.dll' file you extracted and paste it into the 'C:WindowsSystem32' folder.
  5. If your system is 64 Bit, copy the 'Banshee.dll' file and paste it into 'C:WindowssysWOW64' folder.
    NOTE! On 64 Bit systems, you must copy the dll file to both the 'sysWOW64' and 'System32' folders. In other words, both folders need the 'Banshee.dll' file.
  6. 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.
    2. Right-click the 'Command Prompt' search result that comes up and click the Run as administrator' option.
  7. Paste the command below into the Command Line window that opens up and press Enter key. This command will delete the problematic registry of the Banshee.dll file (Nothing will happen to the file we pasted in the System32 folder, it just deletes the registry from the Windows Registry Editor. The file we pasted in the System32 folder will not be damaged).
    %windir%System32regsvr32.exe /u Banshee.dll
  8. If you are using a 64 Bit operating system, after doing the commands above, you also need to run the command below. With this command, we will also delete the Banshee.dll file's damaged registry for 64 Bit (The deleting process will be only for the registries in Regedit. In other words, the dll file you pasted into the SysWoW64 folder will not be damaged at all).
    %windir%SysWoW64regsvr32.exe /u Banshee.dll
  9. You must create a new registry for the dll file that you deleted from the registry editor. In order to do this, copy the command below and paste it into the Command Line and hit Enter.
    %windir%System32regsvr32.exe /i Banshee.dll
  10. Windows 64 Bit users must run the command below after running the previous command. With this command, we will create a clean and good registry for the Banshee.dll file we deleted.
    %windir%SysWoW64regsvr32.exe /i Banshee.dll
  11. You may see certain error messages when running the commands from the command line. These errors will not prevent the installation of the Banshee.dll file. In other words, the installation will finish, but it may give some errors because of certain incompatibilities. After restarting your computer, to see if the installation was successful or not, try running the software that was giving the dll error again. If you continue to get the errors when running the software after the installation, you can try the 2nd Method as an alternative.

Method 2: Copying the Banshee.dll File to the Software File Folderlink

  3. Copy the Banshee.dll file.
  4. Paste the dll file you copied into the software's file folder that we just opened.
  5. When the dll file is moved to the software file folder, it means that the process is completed. Check to see if the problem was solved by running the software giving the error message again. If you are still receiving the error message, you can complete the 3rd Method as an alternative.

Method 3: Uninstalling and Reinstalling the Software That Is Giving the Banshee.dll Errorlink

  1. Open the Run window by pressing the 'Windows' + 'R' keys on your keyboard at the same time. Type in the command below into the Run window and push Enter to run it. This command will open the 'Programs and Features' window.
