"Can't find Language DLL msain.dll" ErrorMessage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,
    My friend has an MS-Access database file lives on his machine (.mdb) that whenever he try to open it this error message pops-up "Can't find Language DLL msain.dll" 
    But the whenever I try to open that file on my machine it opens normally.

    He tried to reinstall Office package, and that still doesn't solve the issue.

    Any suggestion about that issue will be appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    Typically, a repair or reinstall of Office should work (fix the problem). You could also try reinstalling just Access. What version of Access is it?

  • Hi swaaa,

    i can see that you are able to open the same database on your machine.

    i suggest you to copy the objects from that database to new database using your machine.

    then try to use that new database on your friends machine and try to open that database.

    also check whether you are able to create new database on that machine or not.

    you can also try to open any other database on his machine to check whether the issue is only with specific database or with Application.

    let us know , if this suggestion work for you or not.

    if not, please try to provide more information about Access on both machine and information about database.

    we will try to provide you further suggestions to solve the issue.

    Regards

  • Hi swaaa,

    >> me and my friend using Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus, Using My Office App 2010

    What is the specific version for Office 365, Access 2013 or Access 2016?

    If your friend open Access, and create a new access database, will he receive the same error?

    I suggest you create a new Access database with .accdb extension, will it work on your friend computer?

    In addition, did he install multiple Access version on his computer?

    >> He tried to reinstall Office package

    Which package did he reinstall?

    Best Regards,

    Tao Zhou
