  • Hi Dougshell,

    There is no need to copy anything to the desktop. You can copy the DLL files straight into c:\Windows\System32 unless you don't have permissions or its denied in group policy.

  • Hi,

    Is it you don't have permissions to copy to System32 folder? Generally you can copy files to C:\Windows\System32 folder. Copying to desktop doesn't mean that the files are copied to System32 folder.

    If I have not answered your query please provide more information.

    Thanks!!
