Fix Windows XP / 7 missing class msstdfmt.dll

To fix an error like

missing class msstdfmt.dll

  1. download 2gb152.exe (1MB) Microsoft recently took this link down! http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=12972 I have not found an alternate link, I suppose Microsoft wants you to just upgrade to Windows 10….
  2. Run 2gb152.exe, extracting its contents to c:\temp
  3. Copy msstdfmt.dll to:

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

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