Solved – Splwow64.exe Error – The program can’t start

Had a client with a printer issue.

This link helped me solve it.

Splwow64.exe error (The program cant start because dll is missing from your computer)


I deleted the folders that are highlighted in yellow. Then I followed the rest of the instructions.

When I came to deleting all the files in the drivers directory I made a back up of all the files first just in case I needed to put them back. I didn’t.

I hope this helps someone else out there…


Solved EMET detected Caller mitigation and will close the application: OUTLOOK.EXE

Customer had this issue this morning. They were running EMET 5.2.


I upgraded EMET to 5.5, and restarted the machine. Didn’t fix the issue.

I updated the Symantic End Point software and ran a scan. While scanning another co-worker suggested opening Outlook in safe mode. Holding the control button and double-clicking the toolbar icon for Outlook the program opened without the EMET warning.

We disabled a couple of Add-ins in Outlook. Restarted the program several times and EMET never popped up again.

I hope this helps someone else out there….
