Fix Windows error “missing class msstdfmt.dll”

less than 1 minute read

CNet has the file 2gb152.exe at

  1. Extract msstdfmt.dll from 2gb152.exe
  2. Copy msstdfmt.dll to:

    Windows XP Windows 7
    c:/windows/system32/ c:/windows/system/syswow64/
  3. Start an Administrator command prompt and type

    • Windows XP: regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\msstdfmt.dll
    • Windows 7: regsvr32 c:\windows\syswow64\msstdfmt.dll

Microsoft took down original file

Microsoft removed 2gb152.exe (1MB) that was formerly at

I suppose they just want you to get Windows 10.
