ERROR: Unable to Locate DLL when running ListPro on Windows 2000

Last Updated:

ListPro 5.0 is not designed to run on Windows 2000, and only officially supports Windows XP or higher. If you try to run ListPro on Windows 2000, you may receive this error:

“The dynamic link library gdiplus.dll could not be found in the specified path…”

To resolve this error, you need to install the gdiplus.dll file on your computer. You can download it from Microsoft here.

Then, copy the file to the right location with these steps:

  1. Run the file you downloaded, and let it extract the gdiplus.dll file onto your desktop.
  2. Right-click on the gdiplus.dll file and pick Copy.
  3. Click Start, then Run, and type in %systemroot%\\system32 and press Enter.
  4. In the Explorer window that pops up, pick Edit -> Paste.

If you do not have system permissions to add files to the system32 folder, add the file to C:\\Program Files\\Ilium Software\\ListPro instead.
