    App will not run


    Hi all...I have installed an old app that was for xp and when I run it ,,it says that a dll file is not in the folder where the exe file is , but when I look I can see that it is in fact there.
    It is only a small app, can anyone help please.

    Hi Len,

    As its an XP app it might possibly require an earlier version of Netframework.

    In settings >> Programs & features >> features > tick the NetframeWork 3.5 box

    Len, if the .net 3.5 doesn't cure it, can you please post a pic of the message, and a pic of the folder with those files? Thanks.....
