Live Developer Preview - Login dll error after install on first boot


  • After the install from the DVD download completes and the system reboots, the system goes through a few screens where the little animated circle comes up on screen and then when it attempts to load the graphical login module, all that comes up is a windows dialogue box stating there is an error with the login dll. I click OK and that dialogue box just keeps coming up after about 15 seconds.

    The error says it could not find the login dll on the disk.
    I have tried rebooting several times but continue to get the same error.
    I have tried a repair and am told the system could not repair itself.

  • Hey Axe74,


    Did you choose to do an Upgrade or Custom installation when you installed the Windows Developer Preview?

    Are you installing on a separate partition, a new hard drive, or some other method? (Please explain if you are using a different method)


    You may want to try downloading one of the Windows Developer Preview .iso versions that is provided in the link below and try to reinstall/install the Windows Developer Preview using a different disk (with a freshly downloaded .iso):

    Look forward to hearing back from you.
