ERROR: LogonUI.exe Bad Image PLEASE HELP

    Question

  • When I boot my pc it starts loading windows developer preview then comes up with an error saying LogonUI.exe Bad Image.

    COMCTL32.dll is either not designed to run windows or it contains an error.

    I've tried booting in safe mode but it just says preparing options and turns off.

    Please help

    Is there a way of starting up repair on Window Developer Preview?

    What is COMCTL32.dll used for anyway?

    Sincerely Caleb

  • COMCTL32.dll is a Windows DLL which contains control UI elements which are used by Windows products.

    In the Bootmanager options go to Troubleshooting->command prompt and run

    sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=c:\windows

    (Replace C: with the drive letter where you installed Windows)

    Does it fix it? If not use Reset or Refresh:

  • Hello drlazybean,

    If addition to the information from Andre, if you are still having issues, use the following steps to boot.

    Try following these steps to perform an automatic repair if you can’t boot. These steps take the place of startup repair.

    Restart your computer
    Repeatedly tapF8 on your keyboard
    When the "Choose an option" screen appears, click Troubleshoot
    Click Advanced options
    Click Automatic repair
    Select an administrator account
    Enter the password for that account
    Once it has finished and restarted, click Continue to load Windows Developer Preview.
    Then restart your computer

     
    Please reply back and let us know the status of your issue.

    Thanks,
