I'm using the 'LoadLibrary' from the Windows API, when I run the application, it throws me an error code 126. I read that it may be caused by dependencies, I checked what's wrong with some applications like Dependency Walker, but everything was fine.
Today I banged my head again to 126.I learned one thing that makes 126 happen again on top of those previous examples is chained loading of java's virtual machine dll from my_dll. In my case my_dll needs to have jvm.dll marked as "delay loaded".Setting is at project level:Configuration Properties/Linker/Input/Delay Loaded Dllswhere I wrote jvm.dll;This error is something I can repeat.
The name of the module. This can be either a library module (a .dll file) or an executablemodule (an .exe file).If the specified module is an executable module, static imports are not loaded;instead, the module is loaded as if byLoadLibraryExwith the DONT_RESOLVE_DLL_REFERENCES flag.
If the string specifies a module name without a path and the file name extension is omitted, the functionappends the default library extension ".DLL" to the module name. To prevent the function from appending".DLL" to the module name, include a trailing point character (.) in the module name string.
LoadLibrary can be used to load a library module intothe address space of the process and return a handle that can be used inGetProcAddress to get the address of a DLL function.LoadLibrary can also be used to load other executablemodules. For example, the function can specify an .exe file to get a handle that can be used inFindResource orLoadResource. However, do not useLoadLibrary to run an .exe file. Instead, usethe CreateProcess function.
If the specified module is a DLL that is not already loaded for the calling process, the system calls theDLL's DllMain function with theDLL_PROCESS_ATTACH value. IfDllMain returns TRUE,LoadLibrary returns a handle to the module. IfDllMain returns FALSE,the system unloads the DLL from the process address space andLoadLibrary returns NULL. It isnot safe to call LoadLibrary fromDllMain. For more information, see the Remarks section inDllMain.
If no file name extension is specified in the lpFileName parameter, the defaultlibrary extension .dll is appended. However, the file name string can include a trailing point character (.) toindicate that the module name has no extension. When no path is specified, the function searches for loadedmodules whose base name matches the base name of the module to be loaded. If the name matches, the load succeeds.Otherwise, the function searches for the file.
The first directory searched is the directory containing the image file used to create the calling process(for more information, see theCreateProcess function). Doing this allowsprivate dynamic-link library (DLL) files associated with a process to be found without adding the process'sinstalled directory to the PATH environment variable. If a relative path isspecified, the entire relative path is appended to every token in the DLL search path list. To load a module froma relative path without searching any other path, useGetFullPathName to get a nonrelative path and callLoadLibrary with the nonrelative path. For moreinformation on the DLL search order, seeDynamic-Link Library Search Order.
The libloaderapi.h header defines LoadLibrary as an alias which automatically selects the ANSI or Unicode version of this function based on the definition of the UNICODE preprocessor constant. Mixing usage of the encoding-neutral alias with code that not encoding-neutral can lead to mismatches that result in compilation or runtime errors. For more information, see Conventions for Function Prototypes.
You may encounter the loadlibrary failed with error 126 when the problematic application does not have the privileges to access a protected system resource. In this case, launching the problematic application as an administrator may solve the problem.
VSR (or Virtual Super Resolution) is an AMD feature that lets an application or game render at higher resolutions (beyond the native display resolution). If the display resolution in use is not compatible with the game (like Civilization VI), then that may cause the loadlibrary error at hand. In this context, enabling the Virtual Super Resolution in the AMD Settings may solve the problem.
In a multi-display environment, you may encounter the loadlibrary failed error if the main monitor is not the internal display (in case of a laptop) or if the external display is not connected to a dedicated graphics card port but to an on-board graphics card port (in a dual graphics cards setup) as this may cause incompatible resource hogging by the cards. In such a case, changing the main monitor of the system or disconnecting the external display may fix error 126.
The loadlibrary may fail with error 126 if the essential system files are corrupt which may not let an application access an essential system directory or resource. In this case, you may fix the issue by performing an SFC scan of the system.
There are many applications (found by clean booting the system) reported to cause the loadlibrary issue but in many instances, users reported that the AMD Software triggered the error. Here, uninstalling the AMD Software may solve the problem.
You may encounter loadlibrary error 126 if the system has two graphics cards (i.e., one built-in and the other dedicated) and the modules of the applications involved tried to use different cards simultaneously.
For example, if the issue occurs when an RDP session is used to launch Blender and the loadlibrary error is shown, then the issue might have occurred as the RDP session tried to use a built-in graphics card, whereas, Blender was trying to use the dedicated graphics card. In this scenario, disabling the built-in graphics card (after all, dedicated graphics is more powerful and useful) will force the usage of a single card and thus may fix the LoadLibrary error.
If an application (like Minecraft) requires JAVA but the system has two Java versions installed (like a 32-bit and other, 64-bit), then that may break the operation of the application and cause loadlibrary failed with error 126. In this case, uninstalling a Java version may solve the problem.
When MicroStation attempts to load your DLL it calls on the operating system to find the file. Windows follows a published algorithm when searching for files. If Windows fails to find your DLL it returns error code 126, which it passes back to MicroStation.
How about the C run-time libraries? When Windows attempts to load a DLL, it also must load any dependencies. If it can't find those, it passes the same error code up the chain. Those libs exist on your development computer, because they are part of Viz Studio.
Minecraft users might run into the error 126 caused by normal use of the application, which might also read as, "LoadLibrary failed with error 126.". If Minecraft Error 126 occurs, developers will be told about that issue though error reporting built-into the application. Mojang will then have the knowledge to investigate how and where to fix the issue. So, in these cases, the developer will then release a Minecraft program update to fix the error message displayed (and other reported problems).
Usually Minecraft Error 126 errors with Minecraft happen during startup or shutdown, while Minecraft Error 126 related programs are running, or rarely during the OS update sequence. Recording Minecraft Error 126 errors inside Minecraft is crucial to locate Windows faults and relaying back to Mojang for repair options.

Every system running the database needs to create a client side library so that a client side system can connect to it. While creating the directory, you have to specify the path pointing to the database files.If this path is not specified, you get an error message.
Here, the CD drive represents your CD-Rom drive D: or E: etc. When you run these commands, the dll files are extracted into the system32 folder. This should completely take care of the error 126. If this still does not solve the problem, then you can reinstall the SQL server package by downloading it from the Microsoft website.
A few users have reported this error while starting the Active Console. This can affect other applications as well and not limited to Geneos. The issue is related to the AMD graphics card with an outdated display driver (e.g. atig6pxx.dll file). Please check that you are using the latest display driver in this case.
