cannot initialize cpu dll

Recommended Posts

I just downloaded speccy Ver 1.02.156 and thought I would give it a try. When I run the program it does not show me the CPU, RAM,

MOBO, or the Hard drive info.... just displays "cannot initialize cpu dll" any thoghts as to why this is or just needs to be fixed.

 

any thoughts or comments would be appreciated

Perhaps you could let us know what operating system you use, and anymore info you think may be useful.

I'm experiencing the same problem ("Cannot initialize CPU.dll") when running Speccy 1.02 on a PC whose Operating System is Windows 2000 Server. Perhaps Win 2000 Server isn't supported by Speccy?

I'm having a similar problem! Speccy just freezes up my whole pc having displayed about half the information.

I've attached CPUID file fyi.

 

Any suggestions?

 

 

Yes, I have the same problem, using Win XP Pro (SP3). As there appears no feedback on this, here is my solution

PC-Wizard, which is a similar tool, has no such problems. Install it and drop Speccy.

I have the same issue

 

Windows XP SP3

Speccy ver. 1.08.218

 

I'm using Avast! antivirus

 

CCleaner and Defraggler run fine without any problem.

 

Speccy worked fine just before I ran CCleaner. I figured Ccleaner had probably deleted something usesful to speccy in the registry, so I uninstalled and re-installed Speccy. That didn't fix anything.

 

Edit :

Everything runs fine again after a reboot

Can you retest this now that the devs have released a new version

I've got the same problem here. "cannot initialize cpu dll"

 

I'm running Speccy 1.10, and tried Portable Speccy 1.11 and had the same problem.

 

It is on Windows XP SP3 Pro, with Kaspersky 6.0 for Windows Workstation (business).

 

After seeing this thread, i've tried to reboot and weirdly enough it worked.

 

Do someone knows why the "cpu dll" cannot be "initialized" after some time? (this computer isn't shutdown often, just put in sleep)

Can someone post a screenshot of this issue present in 1.11?

 

I will try, since it happens to me under 1.11 - have to "catch" it first. :)

Hi pedro3:

 

Not a Virus, so no worries! :D

 

I'm sure the brains at Piriform are working on it.

 

Are you experiencing this problem, or just curious?

Hi, thanks for the reply. I am so glad it's not a virus.

 

I just found it this morning. I have XP. I got worried about it really, because I couldn't find anything to get rid of this error.

 

Thanks

Hi pedro3:

 

Please list exactly what version of Win XP that you are running (include service packs) and the version of Speccy.

 

If possible, post a screenshot of Speccy displaying the issue.

 

TIA :)

 

P.S. Does the problem go away after a System Reboot?

Hi,

 

I had yesterday XP SP2 working on my PC. I know, I should have updated my PC sooner. With this SP2 I needed to reboot for the problem to dissapear. After the reboot, everything was working.

 

I installed XP SP3 yesterday night, and the problem has dissapeared completely. If this happens again I will report it.

 

Thanks Compumind.

Hi, i had that problem last week (I made a post when it happened). Until today, after a reboot, all was working correctly as I tested it on several computers.

Today, I checked back my specs on my main computer (the one that "cannot initialize cpu dll") and the problem poped back again.

 

It says "cannot initialise spc dll" now. Here is a picture of what i'm talking about:

I use Windows XP pro SP3, with the portable version of Speccy v1.11 (I tried my v1.10 installed version WITHOUT rebooting and the same error messages appeared).

 

As I thought, when I rebooted, it worked correctly on both version. Anyone knows why it needs a reboot?

Hi everybody

 

Same problem here. Completely uninstalling the program (version 1.15.309 and I mean completely: with Revo Uninstaller utility), downloading the latest version setup (1.16.317), restarting Windows, then re-installing the program took care of the problem. No real reason for it though. Just a detail: first I tried to install the new version over the old one and it refused to do so on the moment that the main program (speccy.exe) would have been written to the folder. Oh, and yes: I re-installed on another partition. All this may not mean anything particular - but I still would like to know what caused the mishap (only on one of my machines). Final detail: I had just updated all official Microsoft updates for my XP SP3 OS (I do this manually once a month).

 

Well, that's it.

 

Bye
