Announcing DLL-Files Fixer release v3.2

Posted on Thursday, 19th February 2015 by Björn Sundqvist

Announcing DLL-Files Fixer release v3.2!

We are very excited to announce a new release for our DLL-Files Fixer software! This latest version takes into account many user-requests from the past few months and comes with exciting new features.

For an optimal experience and maximum security we urge you to update to the latest version NOW!

Notable features:

  • Advanced Installation Option: If you don’t want to install the file(s) recommended by our search algorithms, you can choose advanced installation, where you pick exactly which version of the DLL file you need to install, and specify which specific location on your computer to install it to. This is particularly useful for custom applications that typically come bundled with their own distinct .dll files, as well as for PC Games that often look to find DLLs in their own root folder rather than the machine System folder.

  • Improved UI with Trial & License status notification: We have redesigned the Fixer UI to include clearer information on what features are available with the Trial version, clearer information for those who choose to upgrade to the Premium Version, as well as better information for already active and expiring licenses.
  • Bug Fixes on DLL Installation: Some residual bugs related to overwriting/backup of files that are installed. All DLL files that are overwritten on your machine will be saved to the dll-files %appdata% folder on your machine for easy restore if necessary.
  • Improved logging: All activities the Fixer carries out on your machine should now be properly logged in the local log file, saved in the dll-files %appdata% folder for your perusal. This log file is also great to have and attach in case you need to contact our technical support.
  • Improved Translations: Some translations for TR, PL, GR/EL are updated, with minor fixes to other languages.

 

 

The new version is live on the website and we will set an auto-update of all older versions of the Fixer early next week!

 

We continue to work hard on improving features in the DLL-Files Fixer as well as adding new features that are needed to bring it to the next level.

Have anything to add? Let us know in the comments if YOU think something is missing, or there’s a feature/function we can add that would make your life easier! We would also welcome feedback on recent changes. We are particularly excited to hear what you think about the new “Advanced Installation” option!

Happy Single Awareness Day! ❤

Posted on Friday, 13th February 2015 by Björn Sundqvist

Happy Single Awareness Day! ❤ (and 50% discount)

 

Who needs a Valentine? Tomorrow is NOT for love birds, tomorrow is Single Awareness Day (S.A.D.), it’s a day when we celebrate how great it is to be Single. A Day to celebrate that we are Free. A Day to celebrate Things That Truly Matter (TTTM, FYI).

Happy Single Awareness Day!

Happy Single Awareness Day!

 

Candlelit dinner with the spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend? No Way, more like a pizza and a bag of chips!

Join us in celebration of this special holiday and post YOUR S.A.D. Things That Truly Matter (TTTMs) in the comments!

 

TTTM #1: My computer. Take extra loving care for it this S.A.D. Make sure your anti virus is active and up to date. Make sure you have gone through those 2999 Windows updates you’ve postponed since MidSummer 2013. Got some new PC Games since Christmas? Update your drivers, Get Driver Scanner to help you out, and make sure your DLL-Files Fixer is updated (You DO have DLL-Files Fixer on your PC right?) Give it a good run-through to clean out errors on your computer. Why not defrag that old girl once? Show your PC some love!

If you don’t have a valid license, grab a DLL-Files Fixer key here at 50% off!*

 

TTTM#2: My Whiskey. Why not dust off those bottles a bit? If you’re like me, you’ve got a few that you’re saving for a special occasion. Give them a good rub, and open a couple: This is S.A.D., that’s a special occasion!

 

TTTM#3: My Friends. This one is simple, invite a few, throw a party, celebrate your friendship and (be a giver, come on) let them taste those special whiskeys from #2 above :)

Friends abroad? Have them Skype in and join the party from wherever they are!

 

TTTM#4: My Family. This one can be a bit trickier. Do you really want to give your beer-drinking aunt or Bailey’s-drinking uncle some of that expensive Whiskey? I dunno, maybe give them a call and say hi instead? 😉

 

TTTM#5: My Computer. I know I know I know, this one’s already been used. But seriously, I spend more time on the computer than I do drinking whiskey. I see my computer more times than any one of my individual friends. Frankly, I talk to my computer (well, yell, but still) more than I speak to anyone in my family. My computer deserves both First AND Last place on this list. Take care of your computer this S.A.D.!

Don’t forget, you can get a 50% discount of DLL-Files Fixer here* to help you out.

 

Join us in celebration of this special holiday and post YOUR S.A.D.  Things That Truly Matter (TTTMs) in the comments!

Posted on Thursday, 19th June 2014 by Björn Sundqvist

Announcing DLL-Files Fixer release 3.1.81.2919

After a slight delay, we’re happy to announce a new release for our DLL-Files Fixer software! This latest version takes into account many user-requests from the past few months and prepares for the next major update to be released after the summer. STAY TUNED!

For an optimal experience and maximum security we urge you to update to the latest version NOW! Use the in-app updater (from the help menu) or download a fresh version here

Notable features:

  • Backup of files installed: From now on, whenever you overwrite a dll-file to a new version a backup of the original will be saved. This facilitates troubleshooting and allows for a simple rollback if new issues appear. Location: Start menu -> “Run”: %AppData%\dll-files.com\Fixer\Version 1.0\backup_overwrite
  • Improved interaction with support through the “send feedback” dialogue can be accessed after every file installation, this will allow faster resolution to your issues.
  • Bug fix on scheduler, this should now set proper times and allow removal of scheduling when requested through the ‘settings’ page.
  • Bug fix on some cases where a graphical glitch appeared as a blank page when cancelling an action – resolved.
  • Error messages when a file installation fails should now give proper instructions for troubleshooting.
  • Bug fix on overwriting of files which sometimes caused the file to become write-protected, making it difficult to troubleshoot.

 

We continue to work hard on improving features in the DLL-Files Fixer as well as adding new features that are needed to bring it to the next level.
Have anything to add? Let us know in the comments if YOU think something is missing, or there’s a feature/function we can add that would make your life easier!

Happy Halloween from DLL-Files.com!

Posted on Thursday, 31st October 2013 by Björn Sundqvist

Many parts of the world are already gearing up for a great Halloween weekend, packed with (un)equal parts family time and party time. Being an IT company, of course we’re thinking less of dressing up for a Halloween Party, and are taking it online!
We’re going as a dll-error on an iPhone:

DLL-errors finally on iPhone!

DLL-error finally on iPhone!

For the record, this image is staged, but we absolutely feel that Microsoft should be allowed to do OS on iPhone! (Double our market!)
To all those who celebrate Halloween, have a great weekend! And since other parts of the world celebrate differently, Féliz Dia de los Muertos, o feliz Dia de Finados, or happy All Saint’s Day.

 

Google Warning is Gone! Fixer confirmed Clean…

Posted on Friday, 20th September 2013 by Björn Sundqvist

Finally, after more than SIX weeks of hunting for answers, Google have relented and begun removing the warning on our website, shown to Chrome users when downloading our software. It is still unclear why we were flagged in the first place. Google have been unable to provide us with details on what their scans found, Malware signatures or the like. All indications are that the scan resulted in a false positive warning that has taken some time to be removed.

We always have and always will take extensive measures to make sure all our individual downloads are safe, still it’s not a bad idea to double check all downloads in an external engine. There are several free online services, like virustotal.com, that let you upload a file and search it using all major anti-virus and anti-malware engines at the same time.

In any case, site and software are now once again confirmed clean by Google/Chrome, as well as major AV and anti-malware engines. We can once again reassure our 5Million monthly visitors that our service is entirely safe and the best place on the net for .dll-files!

Have a great weekend everyone, and happy .dll-hunting!

Flagged by Google, stings…

Posted on Wednesday, 7th August 2013 by Björn Sundqvist

Google has recently flagged our Fixer as potentially malicious software. We have not yet received a definite reason of this from Google.
We consider this to be without good reason and it seems we are not the first ones who have been wrongly identified by a Google script.
We would like to assure you that we have not included any harmful code in our software at any point and assure you that downloading our software is entirely safe.

Users with Chrome browser may receive this warning when downloading from our site.
We are currently investigating this and are waiting on Google to provide us with information why we have been flagged.
We will let you know as soon as we know!

30 Million Strong!

Posted on Tuesday, 16th July 2013 by Björn Sundqvist

We have just reached 30 million installations of our DLL-Files Fixer! Not bad considering the service is just about 2 years old (launched first time in April 2011), and averaging more than a million installations per month. This also means that with a program size of about 4MB we have now distributed a staggering 120 Terabytes of software. And that is not even counting the individual .dll-files that are downloaded through the Fixer.

How much is 30 Million?

Of course in terms of money, most would know what 30Million USD/EUR/JPY/BRL would get us, but in terms of users/people? Read the rest of this entry…

Founding Story

Posted on Tuesday, 18th June 2013 by Filip Larsson

So, what happened in 1998? What was that stunning new technology that hit the market, causing all types of .dll-related problems that just had to be solved?

It all began with this screensaver on a Windows 95 machine:
3d screensaver

I went to a friend of mine that had this really cool 3D screensaver on his computer. Can you imagine a 3D Screensaver!? That was amazing! I got the screensaver on a 3.5 inch floppy disk and tried to install it on my computer. But then suddenly…
