    Hi there,
    I have just installed a program and everytime I try to run it, I get an
    error saying that MSVBVM50.dll is required. I do not know what that is. Is
    there anyway I can get the program to run? I have already tried compatibility
    mode but that does not seem to help.

    Thanks!

    If you have access to a computer running Windows XP, you can Copy the file
    msvbvm50.dll from C:\WINDOWS\system32\, and Paste it into the same folder as
    the program's .exe file that requires it, for example, put it in C:\Program
    Files\ MyProgram, if the MyProgram folder contains MyProgram.exe. It
    shouldn't have to be put in Vista's C:\WINDOWS\system32\...

    If you don't have access to an XP computer, go to
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/172991/EN-US/ , and download
    http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb5/MSVBVM50.CAB . You can then
    extract the file from msvbvm50.cab, and place in the folder as noted above.

    I am having the same problem. I downloaded the MSVBVM50.dll file but can't
    seem to extract it. I don't have a C:\Program
    Files\ MyProgram, so tried to extract it into Vista's C:\WINDOWS\system32\,
    but a window showed saying "access denied". Any help will be apreciated!
    Thanks.

    Try downloading MSVBVM50.CAB to your desktop, double-click on MSVBVM50.CAB,
    then drag msvbvm50.dll out of the MSVBVM50.CAB "folder" to your desktop.
    Right-click on msvbvm50.dll, choose Cut, and Paste it into the same folder
    as the .exe file (program) that needs it.

    Even better, copy Both files contained within
    http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vb5/MSVBVM50.CAB
    to the desktop.
    Right click on the MSVBVM50,inf Setup File, and click on Install.
    (The Setup File has a picture with one gear, the other file has 2 gears.)
    Now any program that needs it should run fine.

    It is Jan 2010 (2+ years after this post) and I used your link to resolve an
    issue I had with a program I was unable to get rid of. I just followed your
    instructions, placed it in the file and I was finally able to unistall it.

    Thanks!!

    use regsvr32.exe to register

    in command mode
    run cmd
    goto c:\windows\systen32
    regsvr32 [location of the msvbvm50.dll]

    I've been trying to get the DLL to copy to or open in the app file that needs
    it but I get "access denied" (I'm the administrator and only user of this
    laptop) or when downloaded it to the file it simply wasn't there when I open
    the file. I'm running Win7, this dll worked when I ran Vista. Any
    suggestions on how I can get the DLL into the file?

    Thanks,
